The plan was to catch up to Christmas BY Christmas, but clearly I’m stuck in costume cuteness. I’ll get there in a month or so… 🙂
I found two lion costumes at the consignment sale, but after I thought about it, I felt that it was unfair for one to have such a cool headpiece that included the lion’s face and for the other to just have the mane (and there is no way I could apply face paint well enough to match that!) So, I bought a giraffe costume! But alas, the giraffe head was really flat, like a pancake….hmmm….so Sarah and I ripped out and pinned strategically and stuffed that giraffe nose full of cotton balls! See the difference? (Before-picture above, After-picture below)
Here we are at “Spooky Tots” at the Washingtonian Center on Oct 30, decorating a pumpkin with Ah-Poh and playing with our dino friend!
I was going to take the costumes off for the Washingtonian Center playground, but the pictures were just too cute!
On the 31st: Strapped in the stroller and ready to trick-or-treat!
This is how we greeted our neighbors, peeking through their bottom window. Lions eat smoked salmon, right?
We take turns pushing each other in the Cozy Coupe!
Not for long… I’ll wrestle you for it!
