it was not
well it was dark
but that's just the nature of night
(didn't know you were getting a science lesson today did you?)
trick or treating was too fun
(thanks for coming with us grammy!)
this house does a crazy garage display every year...
cool & scary...
our little race car man
things you can't see in this picture:
-costume...excuse me, UNIFORM has been worn every day since it was purchased 10 days before
-uniform has three big rips at the seams & one hole in the leg
from that constant love...
things you can see:
-hair slicked back to show how fast he drives his race car
-super happy boy
& race car man's sister
race car man's sister...
originally she was to be a bee...
& you can see how well that went...
every time i would come near her with the costume she would yell
on halloween i just decided i would wrestle her into it
& see if i could distract her enough that she would forget
she was wearing it...
what that got us:
blown out eardrums for me
some candy for her
& a new costume...
valley girl circa 1984
(we trick or treated at great grandma's house...
thanks great grandma!)
notice the vans?
the turned up collar?
the high side pony tail?
oh how i loved putting this together...
then as we left to go trick ot treating
it was a little cold
so we got her a coat
then a hat
then she grabbed her stroller as we left
& magically transformed into
which is the most accurate costume for her anyway...
so in all
this little sweetie had three
can you imagine how the first day of middle school, will be?
lord help us all
halloween utterings from a three year old:
'Q what were the other kids in your class dressed up like?'
'spider man, two buzz light years & an injured turtle'
(that's a pretty specific costume, buddy)
while we were standing at the corner
waiting to cross the street
& a big group of kids walked by
'really great costumes guys! really great!'
(third grade teacher in the making...)
as we left a house
that had a little fountain near the door
'hey mom that fountain sounds like someone is peeing!'
(i'm sure that is just the effect they were going for...)
hope you all had fun!
ps thanks for the costume suggestions...
i ended up going as a tired mom of two
with broken glasses
two years in a row!
