Hi everyone! :)
As much as I am USUALLY on top of stuff -- I realized on Halloween day that I did NOT have a treat bag for Brookie! Yikes!
So I grabbed a Kraft bag that I had kept after a recent shopping trip ... and then I grabbed Graphic 45's "Halloween in Wonderland" collection -- and decided to make her an unique bag just for her!!
(and yes, in case you were wondering, this paper collection DOES match her costume!) :)
Here is the bag I made for her :)
And I wanted to share some of our Halloween photos too today :)
So .... a little history here -- I have got my human babies (aka Adam and Brookie) completely TRAINED that when they see Mama's camera, I best get a smile *wink* .... HOWEVER, my fur covered baby (aka Dandy) .... does NOT follow my camera/smile rule ... at all!! Seriously ... my dog, if I have the camera out ... he will look down, away, turn his butt towards me -- it's hilarious and frustrating all at the same time.... lol! So here is Brookie (pre-costume) TRYING to get my Dandy to LOOK at me for a good photo ... Nope, ain't gonna happen Mama! LOL!!
PS ... he was my little devil this Halloween -- perfect for his ANTI-photo self! LOL! :)
Ohhhhhhhh sure ... you'll look my way when your Sister forces your head towards me! LOL! :)
Nope ... still not looking at you Mama ;)
Nope ... not now either Mama .. you can give up anytime now ;)
Ok ... and NOW for the trained human baby ;)
She always puts on the smile for me! :)
Another history lesson about her costume ....
For those that don't know ... Brookie just turned 10 on October 4th -- and she is already the size of an ADULT! She is over 100 pounds, and is 5 feet 4 inches tall .... so that means she wears ADULT sized clothes -- including HALLOWEEN COSTUMES!!
So with that being said -- if you have been to a place that sells COSTUMES -- you will know that women's costumes can be VERY inappropriate for a ten year old girl ... so we literally set aside almost a whole evening to have her look through costumes, us vetoing those that we feel are NOT right for her age -- trying them on testing the 'bend over' look (to make sure it's not too short etc!) -- and making sure that it will still look "cute" on her ;)
She chose what the store called "Dark Mad Hatter" ... but as I was looking at this costume - I am seeing the "White Rabbit" in the ears and the pocket watch .... so I made an executive decision and told Brookie we will call this the "When White Rabbit and Mad Hatter had a baby ... and look at the cutie they got!" ... lol! :)
And here she is carrying the bag I made for her :)
And just in case you were wondering 'who wore it better' ... *wink* ... here is her costume as it was advertised in the store ---- and you know who I am picking as 'who wore it better' *wink* :)
Soooo you can see why we have to have her try them on! LOL! :)
And one last try with my little devil ... Nope, still not a chance I am looking at you Mama! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
