Sorry for the lack of posts. Been super busy making casseroles. And being in denial that it’s Halloween. Did it come early this year?
Since times are tough, I’ve decided to give the local Jaycees a run for their money and make my own haunted house. This is what has been going on here…
Backyard Chainsaw Massacre
And from the haunted hallways: Junior screaming, “EW, GROSS MOM! Can’t you close the door while you are doing that!” What could have freaked my 9-year old out so much? The split-second vision of my droopy little boobs while I was changing into my PJs. In my own bedroom. Jerk.
But nothing scares me more than trying to transform this pile of shit into a Hedwig costume for Junior.
Apparently, Hedwig is some white owl from Harry Potter that you could buy a complete costume for online $35. But nooooooooooo! Why would I pay for a costume and shipping when I could just make it myself? $48 and six stores later, I have all the makings for a Swan Lake wardrobe. I gotta get this together or this kid is gonna get beat up and robbed while trick or treating. I am not so worried for his safety as I am about losing all those Twix bars.
Plus, he is still trying to work through the issues of me sending him out a couple of years ago in a homemade Pikachu costume:
If you are looking for some stellar ideas for Halloween parties this weekend, check this out from ChiIL Mom.
She sent this in for Weirded Out Wednesday, a new feature that I launched and dropped the ball on the following week. Please visit her blog for “adventures in urban-odd ball-off the wall-alternative-eco-punk parenting in Chi, IL.” Way cooler than me!
I’ve also included some memories from the Ghosts of Halloween past for your browsing enjoyment…
