Since I am a kid at heart, I figured I am allowed to enjoy trick-or-treating as much as the kids do.  But I don’t dress up.  Well, I don’t dress up MUCH.

The trick is to dress up enough to reinforce the theme, but not so much that you take the focus away from the little ones…

It’s kinda funny how you can see something so many times, and you still don’t really SEE it.  I think we do that in all parts of life.  We do it to our partners, friends, parents, kids, our surroundings… we often fail to appreciate how amazing they really are.

‘Can’t tell you how many times I have seen the Star Wars movies, yet I had no idea there was a bag on the bandolier across  Chewie’s chest.  My hubby, who has seen the movies at least five times as many times as me, had not noticed either.   Oops.  Must be all the fur in the way.

My husband doesn’t know it yet, but he is going to be a Wookiee when he takes the kids trick-or-treating this Halloween. (Surprise Honey!)  Since trick-or-treating really is for the kids, we adults usually don’t dress, up – other than some nominal Star Wars gear.  I usually wear my Yoda Hat, and the hubby carries a light saber, and maybe his Jedi robe (Adult Jedi costume post to come, I promise).  This year though, I bought him a Wookiee Jacket to wear.  But promise not to tell him, I wouldn’t want him to get too disappointed if I decide to keep it for myself…

When our daughter wanted to be Chewie for Halloween, our son simply had to be Han Solo.  Proportionally they were just about the right size.  In theory, he was happy about this.  He loves Star Wars.  In practice it was a little more complicated.  He was quite upset that Han does not get to have a lightsaber!  But more importantly, he hated the hair!  I mean, HATED the hair.  As the good (albeit slightly obsessed) mom that I am, we skipped 2 haircuts so he would have nice shag do in time for Halloween.  Un-coiffed, it looked more “Luke” than “Han”, and the times we tried to style it like Han he just got REALLY upset.  So, the brain washing had to begin.
