A couple years ago, my son came up with the idea of being a jar of peanut butter for his Halloween costume. At first, we were like, "Uh, no. Pick something normal". Then realized we could figure it out, and it would be a great costume for him--he would live on peanut butter if he could!
This year, my daughter thought she'd like to use the costume (they're at a different school now, though most of the kids moved to the new school when they closed their old one, but there's also 300 kids they didn't know LOL). Great! Re-use a costume! I was so excited.
Then, she thought, "Wouldn't it be awesome if my BFF could be a jar of jam?". Well....I wasn't too keen on going through the whole thing again. We figured the second time would be easier, but there was the first hurdle of finding hoops. We told her that if her BFF could find two hula hoops (or other suitable hoops), we'd go ahead. I didn't have time to search them out. Wouldn't you know...she had two matching hoops in her garage! Surprise! They were quite a bit larger than the peanut butter hoops, but oh well. We had some debating about the hat. We hadn't like the original hat too much, and this time, I had a cheap plastic table cloth for the lid material. It turned out to be such a windy, rainy Halloween, that the had just didn't stay on her. It needed a chin strap LOL.
