Too Soon to Talk Halloween? September 13, 2012
Is it too soon to feel the spirit of Halloween, to string up decorations, to brainstorm clever and crafty costume ideas? I think not, but I’m one of those wacky put-the-Christmas-tree-up-in-November kinda girls, so I often fear I am judged for jumping the gun on holiday preparations. All judgement aside, though, please offer up your ideas for the best DIY costumes. Last year, my 8-year-old hit the jackpot as a nerd (he won cash in the neighborhood contest), and his older brother was quite a convincing clown, but this year, I’ve got nothing. Please help!
