And as much as I want that costume for him..it is $130! I cant bring myself to spend that much money on a costume he will wear one year! Its insane. Now I'm not sure what he is gonna be and of course his daddy is NO help! Men are useless. But I need ideas...any suggestion?!?

The Great Debate
So maybe it isnt a great debate...but whatever. I have been trying to think of what Lyndon could be for Halloween. After thinking for a while, it hit me...a Flying Monkey off the Wizard of Oz. It would be perfect! He is a little evil and we are related to the Wicked Witch (I shall not name her but it shouldnt be hard to figure out). I searched and searched for a cute Flying Monkey costume but with unfortunately I didnt find one that was actually cute and his size. I was very upset. I considering seeing if Lyndon's super sweet Aunt Erika would make him a Flying Monkey costume if I found a good plain monkey costume. I then began to come up with all kinds of random choices. Kangaroo, squirrel, zebra (haha..I bet he would be afraid of it just like his zebra tent). I dont realy want to do a character off of a movie or show...it seems to be what everyone does. I want him to be cute and kind of stand out. Well with his new obsession with Dora, and his constant talking about Swiper the Fox, I thought that would be extremely cute. I started my search for it which lead me to one of the only Swiper costumes I could find...it is HIDEOUS (yes, thats a picture of it)! It looks like Swiper had rabies or something. I couldnt possibly put my child in that thing! Then I found a this PERFECT one! It looks so much like Swiper, its unreal. I couldnt save a picture of it to put on here because its copyrighted. But the website is.. http://www.bellesphotography.com/swiper.htm
