It's that time of year again...

...to take the kids out to find the perfect Halloween costume.
We went to two stores this morning, but all we found were expensive, yet crappy, costumes. Isabelle wants to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid, and Lorelei wants to be either Tinkerbell or a cat.
Lorelei really likes hats...

All hail King Lorelei!
"Yo, G! Gonna pimp my ride?"

Oh, what a disturbing store. This refrigerator was stocked with body parts. Like fresh Leg, heart, hands. But the "food" labels were funny. The leg was labeled "Cannibal Meat Market...naturally flavored leg". Eeewww.


How's this for an ego boost? Lorelei threw her arms around this skeleton bride and said "Mommy!". Oh, dear.
And since this is a birding blog, I thought I would add a photo of some birds feeding.

Like vultures feeding on a freshly dead man.

Aren't you glad you stopped by?

Just finished dinner - thanks!

My brother is having a big Halloween party and I have no ideas for costumes.

Lorelei looks really cute in those hats!

What fun! I remember those days and the excitement. But the body parts... I don't know about that. I still can't create a new post - been trying since yesterday. I'm ready to switch away from Blogger but...I don't know where to go! LOL! You are one of the lucky ones!

Ha ha! I saw those "meat" thingies at the Halloween store here too. Gross.

Morgan was Ariel one year - complete with the wig of red hair! I wish I had known because we still have the costume. I would have sent it to you. Still can I suppose if you can't find one.

Laura:
Sorry! But at least you hadn't just STARTED dinner...

Mary: Well, there's always LiveJournal, or...okay, I don't know any others. Keep trying!

Michelle:
Thanks for the offer. If it comes to that, I may just take you up on it. But Lorelei and I will be going out in the morning again while Isabelle is in school and maybe we will get lucky.

Oh my, those body parts *are* disturbing, along with the dead man. Alrighty then!
Lorelei is a cutie in hats!

Thanks for the giggle Susan! Almost snorted coffee out of my nose with the "Yo, G!. Gonna pimp my ride?"
