The conversations started around the dinner table a few weeks ago…. what did everyone want to be for Halloween? As usual, I tried to sway my kids towards doing a whole-cool-group-thing. I proposed ideas of dressing up as the characters from “Hotel Transylvania”…. but the girls both wanted to be Mavis and the boys all wanted to be Frankenstein. So then I thought it might be fun to all goes as the characters from “Wreck It Ralph”…. but again, I could not gain agreement.
Everyone around here has their own opinion….. I have one daughter who wants to be a cheerleader, and one who settled on the idea of going as a black cat. My older boys demand that Grandpa wields his creative genius as he did last year and develop a costume out of a box.
