Unfortunately, the stickers that were supposed to stick so well to Blake's shirt didn't stick well at all. And when I tried to secure them with tape, it made them even more enticing to mess with.
Even more unfortunate is the fact that I didn't get any pictures of Blake in his costume (or any of me in mine) during our ward "Harvest Party", which is the only time we will be wearing our costumes*. So for the sake of memories, I recreated Blake's costume. And I digitally recreated mine.
You can be impressed with my MS paint skills.
Can you figure out what we are? (Check the comments for the answer!)
*You may be wondering why we only wore our costumes to our ward
Halloween Party Harvest Party and not to go trick-or-treating. It's because we aren't going trick-or-treating. There are several reasons for this and all of them do a great job of taking the wind out of Halloween's sails:
1- Blake is 19 months old and while I'm sure he'd love to get a bag full of candy, as the mother of this 19 month old I am not keen on him consuming a bag full of candy.
2- If Blake isn't going to eat the candy then guess who will: me. As evidenced by the picture of me in this post, the last thing I need is a bag full of candy.
3- If we knew a lot of our neighbors or knew a group of people who were going trick-or-treating then I'd probably be up for tagging along. But we don't. So we aren't.
4- Blake won't remember hanging out at home on his second Halloween, so I don't feel too bad about not going.
