yay or nay?

I have so much to write about - but since I'm finishing up my second 12+ hour work day in a row, my much-needed mental purge isn't going to happen tonight. However, as I sat down to quickly check e-mail, I noticed that the company where I purchased our Halloween costumes last week, is now having a huge sale. Thankfully, only one of the costumes that I purchased at full price was marked down 80%.

Nonetheless, while I was scrolling through the multiple pages of costumes wondering if perhaps I should buy some new ones - at a significantly reduced rate - and hang on to them until next year (or later) when they fit the children, I happened to notice this extraordinary adult sized costume.


Since Charlie's birthday is next week, and our kids love, love, LOVE Buzz Lightyear, and love, love, LOVE their dad to the point that they dress up like him and walk like him and even smart talk me - like him ... maybe this would make a great gift for my husband. He could run around the house in his costume and jump on the couch with the kids.

Doesn't that sound like fun for a 42 43-year old man?

Shhh. Don't tell him.


  1. Oh can you imagine how happy your kids would be? You can't put a price on that. I so think you should do it. Would love to see the pictures.

  2. He'll, I mean they'll love it. DO IT!!!

  3. This is hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing.

  4. My vote "YAY"!

    Personally, I think those wings will accent Charlie's shoulders! In fact, I may get a Woody costume for Reiner. Then they could play together while we are walking/running for a cure!

    (Happy Birthday Charlie!)

    Talk to you soon. M ;-)

  5. What is the site? I would love to purchase some dress up costumes!

  6. Oh YAY! Certainly Yay! Like there is even a question?

  7. Jim says --do not buy him one. I think Charlie would get a kick out of it and would, of course, join the children. Anything for HIS children. Send me the site so I can buy one for me just for laughs.

  8. I think it looks like a blast! And "knowing" Charlie from your blog, I think it's definitely an outfit he would happily rock.

  9. Mom / Samantha: Here's the website >> http://www.halloweencostumes.com

    When the kids saw the picture of the man dressed as Buzz they went totally nuts. They definitely want for me to get it. But I don't know that Charlie would truly appreciate this costume. He has made it abundantly clear that he really wants a dutch oven for his birthday. Boor-ring.

  10. Wrap the dutch oven in the Buzz costume! You've GOT to get it! He could wear it in his next triathalon (maybe minus the wing things!)!

  11. Does he know the true meaning of a dutch oven? I wouldn't want the costume or the dutch oven.
