Many years ago when I first found out that we were pregnant with twins, we proudly announced it to our family. Everyone was of course very happy for us, but it was my brother-in-law Aaron who seemed the most excited of everyone. “Do you realize the Halloween possibilities of having twins?” was his comment which I will never forget.
Now, I’ve never been one to dress the kids the same although I do find it interesting that if they are dressing themselves, they often end up coordinated. When the twins were first born, I first had visions of an über-coordinated Noah’s Arc theme, and then bed-rest put an end to thoughts of any kind of highly coordinated nursery decoration. Fortunately my friends helped out and we ended up with a great nursery, but much smaller scale than what I had originally planned.
We missed Halloween last year when we were in Holland, and this year I anticipated grand plans of a common theme for Halloween costumes. I was thinking Camelot complete with a princess-in-distress, a brave knight and dangerous (but cute) dragon. Alas, the kids had something different in mind.
If there is one thing I’ve learned from having kids, is not to get so disappointed when things don’t go as I expect them to because often it ends up being much better than I could have ever anticipated.
I know it isn’t Halloween yet, but these are seriously cute. We had to try them on while Oma Dolphin was here.
