Happy Halloween!

So, it's 12:30AM. My mom and I have been working on the twins' Montessori Halloween Celebration costumes (in the theme of animals they have learned about) since 4PM. Why did we wait until the last minute? Because the twins' teacher didn't give us a list of the animals to choose from until Wednesday night. What will they be dressed as? Not elephants. Not cows. No. Nothing as simple as that. Try Miss-Miss as a luna moth:

And a coral snake for Bubba:

I shit you not. The photo essay will follow on Monday. Until then, my tired brain and fingers leave you with this little tidbit. Did you know the mask, worn by the character Michael Myers in Halloween, was a cheap Captain Kirk mask, painted white? And since that sorta makes William Shatner as iconic as a Jack-o-Lantern this time of year, I leave you with this video. This thing of beauty. This savior o' my blog at 12:38 AM. Run away, dear friends. Run away.

Well that was very Passive-Agressive of the teacher!!
I think I would tell them to stuff it and keep the kids home that day! That seriously sucks!
Hang in there!

HEATHER said...

After you have finished the costumes, cruise by my blog-I gave you an award.

Geez, should I be glad that there isn't a Montessori preschool located conveniently for Molly to attend? Because there's no way in creation I'd be able to fashion either a luna moth or a coral snake costume!

I'd be the reason she'd flunk out of school.

Nice of the teacher to do that to you. It would serve her right if you sent them as a witch and a ghost. Who ever heard of dressing up as a Luna moth?

Loved the video!

Peace - D

I would have dressed her as a coccoon and told the teacher you didn't have time to develop the luna moth!

I like MetalMom's suggestion. LOL I hope it went well, and I can't wait for the photo essay!

I don't know nuttin bout costumes but Bill Shatner is awesome I don't care what anybody says, LONG LIVE CAPT. KIRK !

A Free Man said...

Good luck with those costumes. They sound...elaborate.

I can't wait to see the costumes. Our Montessori school skips Halloween all together and instead celebrates United Nations Day, which occurs just a week earlier.

And as for that video... HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! That *was* a thing of beauty.
