Happy Halloween!!



Yay! Tip Junkie is doing another Talk to Me Tuesday with Mr. Linky!




AND The Lazy Organizer is doing a Halloween Talk About Tuesday!

After reading Kat's post about Halloween, I dug through boxes of (very unorganized) photos to see if I could find a few pictures of some crazy Halloween costumes I had made. I dug for two hours, but could only find one picture of a few of my crazy costumes.

This costume was from 1994 and I was a Pumpkin Troll. Remember them? Let me refresh.














There was a troll doll for everything! Cheerleader Troll, Basketball Player Troll, Chef Troll, Zebra Troll, S & M Troll...Okay, they didn't have an S & M Troll. OR DID THEY??? You go ahead and research that. On to the costume!



















People could not believe that was my hair and not a wig. Trust me, it was my hair and I had the snarls for a week to prove it! It would have been a great time to start my dreadlock (that would be in the singular because I only have enough hair to have one).

Tonight, I am taking the midget over to a friend's house for chili (and Pumpkin Pie Martinis courtesy of moi) before we go trick-or-treating.

By the way, here's bumblebee midget. Isn't she too cute for words? And yes, she was not real pleased at her mommie, hence the puffy eyes, red nose, and snotty face. Oh well, it's cute anyway!

Oh my GOODNESS but she is the cutest little bumblebee! LOVE that costume!

My kiddo was a very displeased duckie her first Halloween (at which point she was not quite 6 months old). We propped her up among a bunch of pumpkins for our first ever festive holiday photo shoot, and she positively GLARED at us and would. NOT. Smile! Hee!

Hoping you and your bee have a happy Halloween! :D

Thanks for the shout out!! And your Troll costume - OMG! Your hair?! Wow. We are going to be teasing my oldest's hair in a bit. Hopefully we'll not have snarls for weeks because she'll just insist we shave it off and start over :-)

Man, I LOVE that troll outfit. You have punk rock green hair to boot. I posted shots of me from the 80's dressed as a witch with big hair but you blew me outta the water with this photo. Rock on Troll Girl, Rock On!

And your bumblebee daughter is too, too adorable, snotty nose and all!
