As promised, here are the pics from our handmade Halloween 2011. As I mentioned before, Greta went as an adorable Blue Fairy and Grandma as a forest nymph, or, Mother Nature. Either way, she looked appropriately woodsy and totally awesome!
Mrs. Yeti went as Little Red Riding Hood, and though it might not register on first viewing, I was supposed to be the Wolf. Unfortunately, every wolf mask I tried on scared the hell outta Greta, so, I ended up making my own mask out of brown felt and some corduroy scraps I found in Mrs. Yeti’s sewing closet. I think it looks a little woodsy owl-ish up close, but, hey, at least the girls looked good!
I know I’ve been away for a while and I should probably explain myself, but then, anyone who has kids knows that the month of October is a total fucking blur. And if you know that, then you also know that blogging is the last thing you have time for when holiday insanity hits. So, sorry for the lag in writing, but, I’m back!
Anyway, we had an awesome, handmade Halloween season (I’ll post the costume pics soon, I promise) with friends, family and enough candy to feed a small village. We’re actually still working on the candy, and believe it or not, I am totally, insanely sick of candy corn at the moment. Wow, I can’t believe I just wrote that, but, it’s true…I’ve had my fill till next year. Yikes!
Oh, and speaking of candy, I have to share with you what just might be the best Halloween quote ever. This gem was uttered by my mother one morning when Greta demanded candy for breakfast (again). Tired of trying to force her to eat something healthy, my Mom stood her ground and simply uttered: “Greta, candy is not a food group!” Ha…classic!
