When I asked the girls what they wanted to be for Halloween, Rose had no idea what I was talking about whatsoever. Lily said she wanted to be a kangaroo.
She was a kangaroo last year.
While the costume was very cute, I encouraged her to be something else. I like variety! Plus, the old costume was too small and new kangaroo costumes are pretty pricey. I lucked out finding the above costume for something like $8 at a used clothing store. They are about $50 new. But no, she was sure she wanted to be a kangaroo again. Not only that, but she wanted Rose to be a kangaroo.
And we lucked out at the used clothing store again. Both girls could be kangaroos for a measly $6. Being a kangaroo wasn’t enough, though. Last year even with bows everyone thought Lily was a boy. So we decided to make them kangaroo ballerinas.
When Lily was two, she wanted nothing to do with her (pink puppy) costume. I couldn’t keep it on her. Well, Rose is two and her reaction to wearing a kangaroo costume?
“I’m Halloween! I’m Halloween!”
Lily: “You’re not Halloween! You’re wearing a costume. You’re a kangaroo ballerina!”
Rose: “No! I’m Halloween!”
Halloweens or kangaroo ballerinas, we’ll be trick-or-treating for a THIRD time tonight.
And the Woof Woofs are all ready for tricks and treats!
Happy Halloween, everyone! Hope my girls cooperate for better pictures tonight!
