It has been pointed out to me, by reputable sources, that I have been devoting far too much time to editing old home movies and not nearly enough energy to this blog. This is probably true. But I’ve been on a roll with the home movies. Those of you who will attend the Gorman family Christmas fiesta will get a chance to see what I mean.
But there are some things that need blogging about. Halloween is one of them. Abigail selected this one herself. She rejected the bright pink version that we had selected for her from the rack and she picked this one:
I think this shows remarkably promising taste on her part. As you can see below, she can be an imperious queen when she is angered.
Keep in mind that we literally left Disneyland that morning. She could have been any number of fairy princesses for Halloween and we would have happily bought them for her. At three times the price, mind you.
This dress came off the rack at a Cracker Barrel. If you know what that means, then you’ll appreciate this dress even more. If you don’t, well, let’s just say it’s where all good children’s clothes can be found.
Since we have a two-year old now, we decided everyone should be in costume. Guess which of these was the lowest maintenance.
Trick or treating then happened. We had actually set a “no treats tonight” rule because of earlier behavior, meaning she could collect them but not eat any. This proved unenforceable.
As with all things, you have to get the dog’s eye view. This dog being Toby, our next door neighbor and one of Abigail’s favorite living creatures.
I’ll leave you with a nice picture and close by saying thanks to Laura, who took this one.
Holy crap that’s cute. I love the costume and her evil queen face. Did you guys go trick-or-treating in your neighborhood? Where did you get the dog face? I mean the fake one.
We actually had that mask lying around. We used it the first time as some party at Ben and Cheryl’s years ago.
