Halloween is almost here and for the first time, our Halloween costumes are purchased before Halloween day.

I'm sure all parents reading this can relate... Most years, my daughters bounce back and forth pretty much daily on what they want to be for Halloween. One day it's a fairy princess, and the next, ait's a scary clown. So generally I wait until the very last moment then go grab the last thing they decide they want to be.

This year, however, both girls wanted to be "scary, but pretty clowns". They certainly don't make many costumes like this so I knew we would have to get creative.

Quickly, though, after entering the Halloween store, the girls ran and found their Halloween costumes of choice.

I even found mine. And if you think for a second that I spent over $100 on an Astronaut costume just to make one planetary joke you're absolutely right.
