Costume Change, Please

Oh my goodness, what am I going to do with this boy?!?! Clayton has acquired quite a collection of costumes lately. He LOVES to dress up as different characters throughout the day. When in full costume, he totally gets into his role. He prefers for you to address him as the character that he is dressed as and finds other characters within the storyline for Wade & I to be. For example, when he is Peter Pan, Wade is Captain Hook and I am Wendy. He gets all the pirate stuff for Wade to put on. They then proceed to have a sword fight while I sit on the couch being the damsel in distress. Clayton will say, "Wendy is my girl, Hook!" and "Don't worry Wendy, I'll save you!" It is so funny! What an imagination...

Here are some of the characters that grace our house on a daily basis. (They have also appeared at other venues such as Walmart, Target, and our friends' houses. Yep, I'm "that" Mom with the kid in a crazy costume that you see in the store.) :)

Superman

Woody (his Halloween costume from last year)

Flash Gordon

Batman

A fireman (this is actually a costume from the Dallas Children's Museum) We'd love to acquire our own, however. Perhaps during the after Halloween sales...

Astronaut hat (also at the Dallas Children's Museum)

Peter Pan - He must wear his green polo when dressed as Peter Pan.

Peter Pan and Captain Hook - Yep, Daddy gets into the action, too.

"Arrr, Matey."


Which character will he pick to be for Halloween? Your guess is as good as mine...

He is something else! I had to laugh this weekend when he was protecting me from the "bad guys". His imagination makes him our creative intellectual.

That's so cute!! It's funny the difference between boys and girls - Lily changes between all her princess outfits! She has to have the right heels that match! :) Can't wait for them to get to play together!

I think Woody is my favorite...

This is SO Will! My mom made a little photo album just of his characters so she/he/we would never forget them all!

WE need to see some pics of you in costume too. I believe your old neighbor has one that would be great on you!
