We looked to Mommy's past for our costume inspiration this year. Mommy frequently chose to wear her ballet costumes as her Halloween costumes when she was growing up. We decided to go as ballerinas this year in fun, festive tutus! Mommy worked very hard to make our costumes with just the right amount of sparkle and tulle.
Daddy seemed to prefer the tutu around our necks. He thought we could be stars of Cirque du Soleil.
These costumes are just
I'm going to have to tell on my sister Jenna. Before our photo session even really got underway, these tutus became chew toys! Jenna spotted a tennis ball in my mouth and decided she had to have it for herself! She's not usually the tennis ball freak. Maybe it's because the ball was purple? As she made a move for the ball, somehow my tutu ended up in her mouth as well. We had a HUGE tug-of-war and the tulle went flying to the accompaniment of Mommy's screams in the background.
You'll be shocked to know Mommy did throw the camera down to try to salvage her hard work. This is the only picture she snapped. My tutu was still in one piece at the time. Mommy was very upset, but she managed to salvage the costumes.
Daddy's response to the dilemma: What did you expect????? He reminded her that the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. He wanted to know how many times she was going to attempt crazy pictures with us that didn't go awry . . . if I had to answer that question, I'd say FOREVER!!!
Hoping your day is full of tricks and treats!
Tutu for now from the Halloweenie Ballerini,
