How great was this skunk costume?
Do I really have to put it away until the next baby comes along?
My mother-in-law initially made it for my nephew 10 years ago and a few other kids have worn it in the meantime. It fit Bella perfectly, which was unexpected since my nephew was around 2 when he wore it and Bella isn't quite 1 and a half. (Hello, jumbo-sized toddler!)
My parents are in town as it was my g-ma's 90th birthday party last weekend, so it was fun to have them go trick-or-treating with us.
We kept it really simple - just 3 houses on Nicollet Island - and Bella did great. She actually loves wearing her costume and was even willing to wear that hat part for over an hour. Carrying the bucket (and her tail) also made her happy.
Seeing our little skunk run through a field at the park officially made this the best Halloween memory ever.
Husband and I were lame-o and failed to wear costumes.Life has been too busy between Mexico, rabies vaccinations, family visiting, and lots of parties. I'll do better next year. Promise. There are too many hideous old ballet costumes being neglected in our random storage room for me NOT to be dressing up.
And for the curious, we let her have a little Kit-Kat bar and I gave her a couple tiny pieces of some organic gummy bears we got. Husband and I will probably eat the rest of the candy we got (a whole 7 pieces). But don't feel too sorry for my girl. She did have cake both on Saturday at my g-ma's party and again yesterday at my sister's baby-shower brunch. And let's not forget the dozens of M&Ms she charmed out of relatives this weekend, too. Plus there were all those ice cream comes my mother-in-law gave her in Mexico. Girl's been on a sugar high for weeks.
