Last year our family had a patriotic theme. Hubby was Uncle Sam, I was Lady Liberty and Mr. Intensity was an Army Man.
This year, I'm not sure how we'll dress. Hubby wants to go as reformation characters. I want to see him shave the top of his head, first.
Which brings me to this year. Has anyone else been disturbed by what's in the Halloween aisle at Target? It's rather disturbing. Call me prudish, old fashioned, or with a selective memory but I don't remember all the gore being there five years ago.
Mr. Intensity is drawn to that stuff. He stands and stares at it. He is mesmerized by the groaning skulls, floating eye balls, and chopping axes. I can hardly pull him away.
Yuck. I really don't like it. Even more - I don't like that he likes it.
So - what I've decided (and hope I can stick with it!) is that I'm not taking Mr. Intensity with me to the store until Halloween is over. Am I being overprotective?
