Emerson and Ida were feeling less into big time costumes this year and more along the lines of something simple and functional that packed a big punch. And I don't even remember who said the word robber, but the rest is history.
It turns out that Urban is a very predictable young man! In all fairness, he wore his policeman costume to our church party but begged me to wear the lion costume from the costume tub on Halloween night. This may be the exact costume we had tried to convince him to wear before we got the policeman costume. But, you say potatoe, I say potato, ya know? No harm, no foul. Don't cry over spilled milk. Really, I didn't care.
We loaded the robbers and the lion and headed to town.
