Alvin and The Chipmunks

Colin loves hats so he was deemed Alvin, Declan was being stubborn and didnt want to wear anything so he was deemed Theodore and my little Finn loved the glasses so there is my Simon.  We had a Halloween party to attend on Sunday and it was the first time we put on our outfits.  It is so hard to get a good photo so this is what we have for now.  I wish I could take credit for the idea but a girlfriend of mine (Christy) did this with her 3 boys a couple of years ago and she offered to share her tails with me along with the red hat.  She is my crafty friend and makes her costumes every year.  I was able to complete the costumes with a trip to the local salvation army.  You would be amazed by the amount of "bright" turtle necks were available in the ladies section.  They wore the costumes all evening and the party was a success.  We had to take the glasses off of Finn at dinner because it was like he forgot they were on.  We have 3 more dress up events so these costumes are going to get a ton of use.  We are missing the older kids because we all converged to the party location from hockey and playdates.  Gosh what will I do for next year???
