I Need To Set The Record Straight.

I did not make Vivi's costume. It was bought for her at a resale shop by Kendra aka The Thrift Store Diva. I believe she paid $1 for it. Vivi originally wanted to be Cinderella, but fell in love with the little pink dress, she changed her mind.

So, for those of you with scorecards, let's go down the list.

Vivi's 5 Little Monkeys Birthday Cake - Made by us.

Emerson's Rockford Peach Costume - Made by us.

Vivi's China Doll Costume - Store bought.

I'm sorry for the extra paperwork.

In other news, we received a note from Emerson's school regarding Halloween Costumes.

"At _______School we celebrate Halloween in a fun, non-violent way. Please plan your child's Halloween costume with the following in mind:

Costumes must:

- Not contain any weapons (real or imitation). This includes but is not limited to swords, guns, knives, clubs, lasers, etc.
- Not contain any fake blood or other gruesome masks.
- Not represent a violent character such as Freddie Krueger, "Jason", an axe-murderer, terrorist, etc.
And my very favorite.

-Cover the child appropriately, that is: no exposed torso, chest area, buttocks, etc.

Man, now I have to put away Emerson's pair of assless chaps until Thanksgiving! That school takes the piss out of everything!!

Oh my gosh you crack me up. Why does the school care what the kids wear for Halloween if the first rule is that they can't wear it to school?!

I'm glad Vivi changed her mind and went with the thrift store dress, it's so adorable!

Now wait a second, if the first rule says that the kids can't wear their costume to school, why is it followed by rules specifying what costumes they can wear to school? I don't get it.

I totally LOVE the "league of their own" outfit... that's pretty clever!

And I totally wanna wear an outfit like that... just to see everyone's reaction!

The fact that schools have to spell it all out like that tells you how many people go for the inappropriate choices.
