Last year you may remember the costumes I put together for my boys and nephew

My oldest was a pirate

I was so happy with how these costumes turned out especially since most of the clothing items used were from Goodwill!

Well, this year, my boys wanted to be all kinds of stuff.  My oldest wanted to be Michael Jackson, Nick wanted to be a black spider, and Brendan wanted to be part of the pit crew of Nascar (seriously).  I really planed to make all of that happen, but then I remembered that I wanted them to be Alvin and the Chipmunks!

They are totally cool with that, but there is a problem.  Nick (my middle son) would be PERFECT as Alvin! But, my oldest wants to be Alvin because he thinks Alvin is cool.  So what do I do?  I planned to dress them as the original Alvin and the Chipmunks with the turtlenecks, but do you think the newer version would satisfy everyone?

Call me old school, but I really like the Alvin and the Chipmunks that I grew up with

Stay tuned…. There might be some bribery going on around these parts.  My nephew’s costume party is tomorrow so I have to make a decision NOW!

What say you? Old school or new school?!

OLD SCHOOL! my stepbrother's little girl became really obsessed with alvin and the chipmunks a couple of years ago, when her mom was pregnant with her little brother. every time they asked her or the parents what the new baby boys name was going to be, she said "alvin!!!" ...hahaha!

I like either old school or new! This is a genius idea for your three boys. Can't wait to see pics of them all dressed up. Mine are going to be Dorothy and Bumblebee the transformer. I wanted them to be Woody and Jessie- I lost the battle ;)
