Ok I know that this is probably REALLY early to start thinking about it, but I love Halloween and since school starts today, fall in on my mind. I have to decide early what I'm making Megan so that I can get all my materials on sale as I get coupons from Jo-Ann's but I'm having a hard time making a decision so I thought for fun I would put up a poll and have ya'll tell me what you think:

#1 -- a candy corn. I think the pictures would be adorable, Chopper thinks it's a tortuous idea but that if I'm ever going to make a child a candycorn it should be know before she fully realizes what I'm doing. On the down side, the hat that completes the outfit kind've makes the kid look like a conehead . . .

#2 -- a flower. Back at Easter I picked up a flower headband and Megan loves flowers so it would be pretty simple to do a tutu with leaves and petals and make her a pink flower.

#3 -- Little Bo Peep. I got the cutest pattern for a little Bo Peep outfit with lacy bloomers and all and Megan has a ton of stuffed sheep (I'm not quite sure how that happened) . . .

I could always make us a family costume but those are only fun if you have fun parties to go to and I don't know that we do yet. I saw one in a magazine where the family dresses up as different parts of a BLT -- Megan would be lettuce, Chopper would be bread and bacon, and I would be the tomato since I should be sufficiently round by Halloween -- oh yeah, did I forget to mention I'm pregnant? March 23!

Anyway, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!!!

Hmmm...this is a hard one. I would say Little Bo Peep. Any of them sound cute though but I can see her cute little face already dressed as a sheep. Good Luck!
