I checked Google Images to get some ideas and confirm this was something I was willing to take on with only seven days until Christmas. What was there to lose? So, yes, I committed.
Hats were the first thing on the agenda. No time to order those on line, but then I remembered...
I had some New Year's party hats in my storage closet from several years ago. (There are some things I don't get rid of on the off chance they might come in handy some day.....no, I don't have balls of salvaged twine in my basement, but I do have my share of plastic bags.) For those who don't understand the twine reference, try asking someone who is seventy or older. They can probably explain it.
The boys already had jogging pants that would work . I just needed long sleeve shirts that would coordinate with the pants. By a stroke of luck, the first store I tried had what I needed on clearance. The force was with me.
I made a stop at Party City thinking I would find some inexpensive rubber or plastic swords. They did have a wide assortment, but the inexpensive ones were more like pirate swords and I knew my daughter would not appreciate the toy weapon.
