Just think...if I could find about seven more contests for us to enter and win, I could recoup what the materials cost for these outfits.
Logan was excited to dress up and insisted on being addressed only as Mickey while he was in costume.
But when we got in the van to head over to the parade, he realized there was a drawback to dressing as his favorite rodent.
"I CAN'T SUCK MY THUMB!" he yelled, holding out his puffy white glove-encased hands.
Hmm. Maybe I can find a use for these gloves once Halloween's over.

See the guy in the above photo? A few minutes later, he was wielding a shovel as he took care of a task even more unpleasant than filing a pachyderm's toenails.
This gal could certainly climb a pole, and judging from the cut of her outfit (I opted not to post a frontal view), she's probably had a chance to practice her pole antics in venues other than just the circus.
Logan wasn't as impressed with the circus. However, he was captivated by the vendors and their flashing toys and tasty treats. His mom quickly fell out of favor for refusing to buy him any.

Need a reminder as to why I'm making it?
Because I need the assurance that someday my kid will leave me for dead in the crappiest nursing home around.
It's waaay too big, so I'll either alter it or eat one gooey butter cake per day between now and the 31st.
The first option sounds like too much work, so I'd better go preheat the oven.
Like how I managed to sneak Bud into the picture? Think of it as a fringe benefit - or not. He's been looking extra rough lately.
Any other grown-folk out there dressing up for Halloween or am I the only dork around?

It's often the last opportunity of the year to spend long stretches of time outdoors. Next month, another harsh winter will likely begin to confine us to the house.
That is, until springtime, our absolute favorite time of year.
