Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. I’ve been extra busy. I will have to take pictures of the house tomorrow to post. On to my dilemma!
I have always bought Halloween costumes this early each year. That way I get them before they are picked over and if I’m buying them off of E.bay then I can pick them up cheaper. Jant.zen is easy. He’s been picking out his Halloween costumes since he was 2. He has been Pig.let, a Lion, a Bernese Mountain Dog, Scooby Doo, a Ninja, and this year he wants to be a Star Wars character (he keeps changing his mind about which one).
The twins have never picked their costumes. Their first Halloween they were Mickey and Minnie. Last year they were Pablo and Uniqua (Backyardigans). This year I asked A.va what she wanted to be (she understands Halloween and Trick or Treat because she remembers it from last year and she watches a Dora Halloween DVD all the time). She said she wanted to be a kitty. Of course it has to be a pink kitty because she’s obsessed with pink. Here’s the one I found and she loved!
Tonight I was looking at Star Wars costumes for Jant.zen when she saw a Tom (Tom and Jerry) costume. She LOVES Tom and Jerry so she said she wanted a Tom costume.
Then she saw Jerry and chose him over Tom. Now when I ask her if she wants the kitty costume she says, “No, Jerry costume.”
So here’s the dilemma. The kitty costume will cost me a total of $31.00 (includes shipping). The Tom and Jerry Costumes are $39.99 plus shipping (the total would be somewhere around $45). So if A.va is Jerry, wouldn’t it be cute if Cad.en was Tom? If I can get free shipping at an online store then it would still cost me $80 for both costumes. However, if I buy the pink kitty costume then Cad.en can choose from one of the costumes below that I already have from when Jant.zen was his age:
Bernese Mountain Dog (we have a real Bernese Mountain Dog named Maya-this one would look good with the kitty costume).
Cad.en doesn’t understand the whole costume thing like A.va does. I did ask him if he wanted to dress up like Scooby Doo and he said “Weh” (Cad.en’s way of saying yes).
So should I:
1). Spend a total of $31 by purchasing the pink kitty costume that A.va no longer wants and let Cad.en choose either the Scooby or Bernese costume?
2). Spend a total of around $80 to buy a Tom Costume for Cad.en and a Jerry Costume for A.va?
3). Spend $40 (plus shipping unless I can find it for free) and buy A.va the Jerry Costume and let Cad.en be Scooby or the Bernese?
Please comment on what you think I should do! Thanks!!
