Happy Halloween!

So, Allie wanted to dress up this year. She insisted on being a mummy, but instead of wasting using toilet paper, she wanted me to use sparkly netting:

I told her people might not “get” her costume, but she didn’t care. I told her that people weren’t going to want to give her candy, and she got MAD.

I told her to behave herself, and she promptly tried to eat my witch (note: not this witch. Allie could totally eat her for me.)

Sigh. Guess I’ll be having some awkward conversations with the neighbors while trick or treating tonight. Gators.



  1. Good to know there's at least one Gator left that's in a festive mood.

  2. You dressed up a gator, and I can't even dress up my 10 lb dog because he kicks and bites me. Help...?

  3. New header? Nice.
    I think the sparkly mummy-gator showed up in the last Twilight book, right? Shirtless teenager mummy-gator of course.

  4. It's all about how you explain to to em. I just mentioned the words "free candy" and Allie kept biting my finger until I agreed to take her trick or treating. Since dogs can't have chocolate, make a deal where 10 pieces of chocolate earned by doggy = 1 slice of bacon for him. I found dogs really respond to logic. And bacon.

  5. Thanks Pickleope. I'm messing around with it a bit still.

    At one point, Allie tried to say she was a "twi-hard," but I told her we don't allow douchebags in this home. Problem squashed.

  6. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a
    40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.

    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
