Most Original...that's my kid

Patrick won the "Most Original" costume prize in his class today. It makes me laugh he and Matthew come up with the strangest ideas for Halloween costumes.

One year Matthew he wanted to be a skunk but the tail had to huge and held erect and sway. Another year he gave me directions on making his costume that included a fur covered head and a plastic tentacle like arm. I don't know if it actually had a name but it was just what he wanted. This year Matthew is organizing a Halloween party in Edinbourgh and he is going as Zombie Jesus.

Patrick's idea this year was "Bedtime". He wore his black soccer tights and undershirt and black gloves and then inserted himself between 2 pillows in a pillow case so his body was covered by the pillow. He wore slippers and a night cap and carried a teddy bear with a small pillow around his neck that said "Now I lay me down to sleep."

Picture to go here.
