Last year you may remember the costumes I put together for my boys and nephew
My oldest was a pirate
Nick, my middle son was Indiana Jones
Bren, my youngest, was a fire fighter
And my nephew was the cutest cowboy
I was so happy with how these costumes turned out especially since most of the clothing items used were from Goodwill!
Well, this year, my boys wanted to be all kinds of stuff. My oldest wanted to be Michael Jackson, Nick wanted to be a black spider, and Brendan wanted to be part of the pit crew of Nascar (seriously). I really planed to make all of that happen, but then I remembered that I wanted them to be Alvin and the Chipmunks!
They are totally cool with that, but there is a problem. Nick (my middle son) would be PERFECT as Alvin! But, my oldest wants to be Alvin because he thinks Alvin is cool. So what do I do? I planned to dress them as the original Alvin and the Chipmunks with the turtlenecks, but do you think the newer version would satisfy everyone?
Call me old school, but I really like the Alvin and the Chipmunks that I grew up with
Stay tuned…. There might be some bribery going on around these parts. My nephew’s costume party is tomorrow so I have to make a decision NOW!
What say you? Old school or new school?!
