There is a crisp breeze to the air. Orange is the primary color of the month. And at every store corner is a jack-o-lantern with an evil grin.
It must be the season of the ghoulish ghouls. Mwahahaha!
A perfect time of year to take the little girls to the Halloween store and
scare the wee out of them look at bloodcurdling costumes.
I mean, how scary can it be? It’s not like anything is real. Right, girls? Girls?
Heeeyyyy, I found an old friend (ha! punny!). Nothing to be frightened of girls. It’s just me, hanging with my buddy, he is an environmentally friendly fella. Heh.
By the way, the girls did NOT like my fella.
I think they said, “Get me out of here!” Or maybe it was, “Get away from that thing!”
I know there were some terrified glances, a few squeals, and then a mad dash. We lost them for a few minutes in their flee of terror. I am not sure why? Don’t they know they are not real? We kept trying to tell them…..
Dad didn’t help matters.
I finally found one of the girls just a few aisles over.
Ummmm….W-O-W. Back that thing up.
Let’s label this photo: too much booty for an eight-year old. And I’m really not sure why anyone would want to be a GIANT derrière for Halloween. I think there is enough of those this year, with the election and all. HA.
Maybe it goes with a Pirate costume…..
Anywho, I quickly led her to a different aisle.
And discovered this atrocity.
Is it wrong I think this is adorable? I just want to pick her up and give her a cuddle.
In a scary movie, I’d be
asking for it dead.
In no time at all, the other child moved from body parts to head-gear. Isn’t that awesome? I think the Drama Queen shirt makes it so.
Pretty soon, the costume changes, and hair-raising antics were out of control. I had to rein them in to keep them from having nightmares.
Be still my darling children, and come to Step-Mama.
Oh yes, the little shop of costume horrors is, as entertaining, as it is horrendous.
Have you visited the Halloween store yet?
