I saw that Lisa did a post of Briana’s Halloween costumes through the years and I thought, what a great idea and I should do the same look back at Maisie’s costumes. By doing so I realized that I am a total looser Mom when it comes to Halloween and costumes. To prove this point, here are the pictures.
Yep, see that big blank space above, well that’s because we did NOTHING! No cute little baby costume, no trick or treating, we just turned off the lights, got in bed early and totally ignored the holiday.
I did a little better this year as we actually had the cutest little giraffe costume for Maisie .Isn’t she the most adorable little giraffe? Well it’s good that I got this picture because come Halloween…
Yep, total loser Mom again as I didn’t take even one stinking picture. I can tell you that Maisie went trick or treating dressed as a gymnast but which leotard she wore…if I had a picture I’d remember….LOSER Mom!!
This year I tried to make up for all my shortcomings from years past when it came to Halloween so not only did I get Maisie dressed up but I dressed up too!I was really trying and given the fact that I allowed this picture to be taken AND I actually posted it…well that’s worth some brownie points…right??
This year I had three costumes available for my sweetie girl.
French Princess and
So which did she choose for trick or treating tonight?
In the spirit of Halloween (see, I’m trying) for dinner tonight I made Mummy Hotdogs for Maisie and Eammon and they both really enjoyed them. Maisie especially enjoyed biting off the Mummy’s head and dipping it in
ketchup blood…YUM! Click on the Mummy Hotdog picture above to be taken to the recipe.
