I know I'm almost a week late in posting pictures from my very first Halloween but don't blame me. Momma has been crazy busy with this and that so there's been no Tiffy time. WAH!
I also just realized I am missing the Spooky Sunflower Soiree over at Wilma's house! Please forgive me, Sunflower Girls, for having a slacker mom.
Momma bought me several Halloween costumes, one of which I sent to my good friend Payton because it was too big for me. I thought maybe I was out of the woods until Momma came home with this crazy costume. I wouldn't even hold still so Momma could take my picture.
"Even though there's pink on this costume, I do not want to be a unicorn. Take this crazy thing off me!"
Momma thought I would make a good witch but I wasn't having any of that hat stuff. Nope. Nothing on my head but kisses, thank you.
I really love my fairy wings but they're not a costume. I don't have a pretty dress that goes along with them like my bff Tweedles does.
I tried to fly away from costumeland but my attempt was unsuccessful.
And then it happened. I saw this thing
"Momma, why is this baby gate blocking the door? What's that? It's for my safety?"
"I don't understand, Momma. Why can't I run outside to greet the trick-or-treaters? I promise not to run in the street and get hit by a car."
Momma was having none of that 'I promise' stuff. She doesn't trust me at all. I admit that I like to chase people and cars but that doesn't mean I am going to play in traffic. As if! I used to live on the streets and I survived.
"Don't make me put Gloria Gaynor on the iPad and sing at the top of my lungs!"
Even this ghost couldn't talk Momma into removing the gate. Sigh. I was upset but knew that I had to get my act together because the trick-or-treaters would soon be arriving. I checked the costume pile one last time and decided that I would dress down this year.
That's right, folks. I decided to divide my football allegiance in order to maintain peace in the house. So a Bears cheerleader I was, even though not many trick-or-treaters could see me in my cute costume. Maybe next year I will send Momma away on Halloween so that I can give out candy without wearing a costume and without being confined to the house by a baby gate.
