The adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl
The real ones: Rocket spends the majority of the year prior to October, deciding what he should be for Halloween. After much thought, he decided he should be Sharkboy. Knowing that Sharkboy was never without his counterpart, and then he had to convince Roxanne to be Lavagirl. She was persuaded pretty easily. However, I wasn't so convinced that this was a good idea, mostly because you can't BUY a Sharkboy and Lavagirl costume at the store, which meant I would have to make them myself. But, hey, that's what good moms do.... right? I even got out my sewing machine for parts of the costumes. The kids are thrilled and can reinact many scenes of the movie almost perfectly. Tonight, when we get trick or treaters at our house, the kids who have store bought costumes get the smarties. The kids with good costumes get mini candy bars... if I haven't already ate them all.
