Halloween Preview

The kids were invited to a Halloween party this week.

Here's my little bunny. If you ask her what a bunny says, she bounces up and down and says "Op, op, op".


If I were in this picture, you would see me rolling my eyes at my little "Stephanie's". This is the first year they had any say, or any opinion, about their costume. Hey, at least it's not Barbie!


PS. Like the Black Spiderman hidden between my kids? He's the neighbor, not merely a figment of your imagination. (You: "WHEW!")

PPS. AND. Let's hope that a) Marin doesn't grow a single millimeter between now and Halloween and b) that the pink wigs can be salvaged from the tangled mess that they have become after JUST ONE USE. (You: "Ummm, Halloween costumes are typically a ONE USE deal." Me: "Oh.") Or! Maybe I could dye their ACTUAL hair pink on the real Halloween? Any ideas/recommendations for pink, non permanent hair dye?

OMG! That bunny photo is the cutest thing I've ever seen. If you see ANY halloween costume photo contests you should enter that one!

I've never heard of LazyTown or Stephanies. They are looking SO cute!

Oh, man. I have a weak spot for pink bunnies who say "'op 'op!"

Also, twin Stephanies is QUTE.

I used to kind of collect dolls, and I remember that difficult doll hair could sometimes be tamed with a little leave-in conditioner (the liquid, water-like kind, a la Infusium, not a thick creamy kind) or by dipping it into a sink of water mixed with a capful of liquid fabric softener. I wonder if that would help with the wigs.

I have no suggestions but had to say that Marin's little "op op op" is totally adorable!!

Katie- in my estimation, Lazy Town Obsessions comes shortly after Dora Obsession. I'm imagining that you are still in the Dora or Pre-Dora phase? It'll come, my friend, it'll come!

Swistle- Leave-in conditioner! Genius! We will try that, because frankly, we have nothing to loose. And the fabric softener... This sounds like a project for David. =)

oh my goodnes they are so cute! I wish I could here her say "op, op, op!"

I've also made the mistake of letting Kate wear her costume too soon. We already have rips in the wings. Oh well.

WHERE DID YOU GET THAT BUNNY COSTUME? Ahhhh, I love it.

I'm glad to find out what bunnies say because everytime we see one I am like "uh...." *wrinkly nose movement*?

Look at those pink little cuties. I didn't know who Stephanie was either, but I can see the attraction to the pink hair!

Erin said...

I also do not know the Stephanies but they must be flipping ADORABLE because SHEESH Marie. Your girls. Make me want GIRLS.

That bunny. I just can't even talk about it. That bunny. She. Um. So cute. SO CUTE.
