The Halloween Dilemma

This year is the first year that James is old enough to have his own strong opinion about Halloween costumes. Now, I had firmly decided to dress the boys as gnomes with white beards and red gnome-hats. Katie was to be a toadstool/mushroom, red with white polka dots. However, James is not cool with that. Its not as though he is dead set against it, but he has other ideas. While he has thrown out the idea of being a farmer, a pirate, a cowboy, a farmer, and a cowboy, and a farmer (see the theme here?) he has also suggested that he and Katie dress up as Thing One and Thing Two from Dr. Seuss. While I think my dreams of dressing them up as gnomes are dashed, I think Thing One and Thing Two would be funny too. And if I did that, Tyler could be the goldfish. Oh, or a garden gnome. Or the Cat in the Hat. Such decisions! So what do you think: should I go with Thing One, Thing Two and the Goldfish, or T1, T2, and a garden gnome. Or should Tyler be the Cat in the Hat? Or, should I just stop over-thinking this whole thing!?!

PS. Here is last years costume: Two Lobsters and a Fisherman
