Back When Sticking Her Tongue Out Was An Involuntary Reflex

Ladybug, originally uploaded by blondemom.

Miss A’s first Halloween in 2005. One of my all-time favorite photos. That baby tongue would give Gene Simmons a run for his money!

I must mommy MacGyver a snow princess costume by 5 p.m. using nothing but my bare hands and a bag of assorted snowflake theme accessories procured from the Dollar Tree. Spit and duct tape may also be involved, as will wine. Please lay hands on your computer now and send me your Martha juju. Lord knows I will need it.

Nothing like an eleventh hour change of costume. At least Miss A is content with a kitty costume “inherited”‘ from Miss C!

By the way, have you seen my keys?

    Are they locked in the car again, circa 1987? HA! Hey, you can do it with the costume!! Sending you creative juju now!

    Good luck with the snow princess costume…if all else fails, grab a can of white spray paing. 😉

    I LOVE the picture…LOVE IT…

    Oh yeah! Good Luck with that. We went through a last minute costume change as well when I got screams of “NO FROGGY!!!!!!!!!!!”. Maddie will now be an 80’s rocker chick (at 2 years old)

    You can do it! I was an Ice Princess one year and wore a white dress my mom made, and had a white wig. I put clear glitter all over my face, popped on a crown and painted my lips with blue lipstick. Done and done!
