On Sunday Maureen wore her scary costume: Ravens cheerleader. *shudder* Yes, I wanted to be a Redskinette when I was little, but that was completely different. Number one: it was the Redskins. Number two: there doesn't need to be a number two...it was the Redskins. Case closed.
Although I did not make Maureen's costumes this year, both costumes were recycled. We found the cheerleader suit at the Goodwill in Eldersburg with Charlene for $2. Robb noticed what we did not--it had LEAH printed across the back. I said, "This is such a great bargain, we will change her name. What do you think, Leah?" Leah smiled back at me. And that's the story of why we changed our daughter's name.
Er, I mean, and then I stitched a pair of white fleece wings onto the back to the dress to obscure the decal.
Of course there's the holiday bib shot.
Then on Halloween afternoon, we dressed
The turtle costume was $2 at the Clarksville Picnic this summer, so we did baby's first Halloween for under $5.
We went to three houses. Each time we came to the door they said the same thing, "She's a frog!"
"No, she's a turtle," we said and turned around so they could see her shell.
It was more convincing when she crawled. And made growling noises at Peg and John's cat Shadow. In all fairness Shadow was probably asking for it.
