Every year around this time the focus of nights and weekends turns to one thing, the kids Halloween costumes.  Even though the kids only wear them for a matter of hours, days and weeks of preparation go into making them a success.  This year my two year old Henry wanted to be an “airplane”.  This proved to be harder than just a pilot costume.  I figured Henry could be both.  Everyone I talked to had an idea for the costume.  […]
