I have a strict personal rule - I do not post pictures of my children on the Internet. Well, I'm relaxing that rule just a bit because they aren't recognizable. That's the whole point of Halloween, right?
Well, this year they decided to be the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I have four children, and their personalities somewhat correspond with those of the Turtles, so we decided to go for it. I made the masks (this is why they look dumb - I don't sew) and I was deliberating about face paint when Kim says to me, "Use acrylics." I decided she was wise, so I went to Wal-Mart and got some. Well, this is where my natural "duh" kicked in. I know that regular acrylic washes right off, but apparently the shiny variety, not so much. I grabbed the right shade, didn't notice it was shiny, and was on my way.
My children are no longer green, but they aren't very happy.
Good thing they have a lot of candy to cheer themselves up with.
