Wonder Wednesday

In honor of Halloween this week,  I was Wondering what everyone is wearing for costumes.  We told our kids that we were not buying any costumes this year (only because we have a HUGE bin full of dress up clothes).  We told them that they needed to either, Reuse, Re purpose or make there costume. 

So this is what they came up with

Thomas the train (3 year old)-  I think, he may still change his mind
Buzz Lightyear (4 year old)
Queen of Hearts ( 7 year old)
Marathon Runner ( 9 year old)-  This one,  brought me to tears.  She sat in her room and made a huge list of different options of what she could be. Then she came to me and said "I want to be a marathon runner like you".  Wow!! 

 Per everyone's great advice yesterday on my sickness, I tried the allergy and Netti pot option.  My head is not nearly as congested as yesterday.  Not sure which one is taking away the pressure, but I think I will use both options again today.   Plus, my husband said "You haven't been running, your body doesn't know what to do".  So I guess, I should listen to my body and get my Run On!!!! 

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!! 


  1. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better - this is always a tough time of year in my house too (change of seasons and reaclimating to school).

    I just wanted to say that I love your mileage club for kids - I really wish one of them would take an interest in running, but I'm not pushing. They are all active in their own sports, so part of me wants to keep mine for me, and part of me wants to run with them!

    I bought 1 costume this year (for my oldest) but the rest we are reusing. I have a spider queen (that's the new one), a prisoner, Ariel, and a penquin. My kids are 11, 9, 5 and 3. I think I'd have bawled if one of them said marathon runner - so cool!

  2. I bet it's nothing a run can't cure. Great idea for the costumes this year =)

  3. Oh my word. Your 9 year old made me tear up too! Awesome!

  4. Awhhh how sweet!! =) My Elly is going to be a witch fairy (a witch hat, tutu and fairy wings)

    Thanks for stopping by ImPossible Stories! :)

  5. That is so awesome she wants to be a marathon runner! Cheap costume to put together :)
