Halloween Barbie *itch

I thought it about time to have a little Barbie bitch, but settled on a Barbie witch instead.

This is the weekend that we get to decorate for Hallow's Eve. I'm so excited. I want to hang the white lights that can stay up for Christmas and get the kids involved in some decorating outside and in the living room.

Guess we gotta nail down some costume ideas pretty soon, too. I'm always so late with these things - not the Martha Stewart Mommy by any stretch. Like any good Barbie though, I can come up with a story to depict a lesson pretty quick. See, the Wicked Witch of the West didn't plan adequately - silly to leave that bucket of water just lying around - and did not survive to the end of the story because of this oversight.

Well, I have 2 weeks to plan for this and there's no better time than the present before some brat throws water on me! The water here often comes in the form of staying up late trying to throw up some decorations because we're the last ones on the street to decorate, running out on Oct 31 to pick up treats on the way home from work, trying to console a crying child because all of the 'good' costumes are gone.

Oh yeah, been there. This year, Mamma is NOT dressing up as the Wicked Witch of the West (although I love the costume) and will try to come up with something more proactive.

So, get a broom and fly away to the costume store, farmers market and second hand clothing outlets. Get everything YOU need to be the good Glenda Barbie witch this year. Dorothy loved her.

Don't feel bad - I don't have our costumes nailed down yet and I only have 2 weeks from tomorrow before our party! AHHHHH! :o)
