Happy Feet

This year for Halloween I had great intentions of dressing up as Carrie from the movie Carrie. Late last week I was informed that dressing up as Carrie was not “work appropriate” so I had to scramble for another costume.
Thank God that Funny Girl has a great collection of costumes. She has two boxes full of costumes that she keeps for her Improv work.
I have been getting a lot of giggles and smiles today because I have been walking around singing a song that goes along with my costume.

I'm Chilly Willy the penguin...... Cause I'm chilly, chilly, willy all the time.....

Actually the costume is ridiculously hot so I had to take it off for a while. I will make sure that I am in full Penguin mode when I go to D's school for the party.

Oh my word, that is hilarious! That is such a cute costume! Great to see you in the flesh...er...feathers! Hehe.

D will LOVE that costume. My mom dressed up as a big mouse when I was in 1st grade. She made the whole suit and even put a little mousetrap on the end of her tail.

I will post my costume photos soon!

You are the cutest thing ever, Rachel! I wish I knew someone with a costume box!

MJB ~ I guess I have a new song to sing at karaoke.... I'm too sexy for my costume... lol

Anon ~ Sometimes it is hard being this hot!!! lol

Tara ~ I got so many giggles and smiles today it was great. D was so excited that I came to school. I was the only mom in the classroom that dressed up. All the kids kept saying "Hi penguin" and i would respond with "Give me some flipper". It was a lot of fun.

Wrangler ~ It was good times. There were a lot of great costumes. My best friend dressed as a cockroach and another friend dressed as a person riding an ostrich.

l.b. ~ Thanks..I think that the big cheesy grin says it all. I had a blast with that costume.
Funny Girl is always saying that her grandkids are going to love her. By then she will probably have a costume room instead of a couple of boxes or even a closet. She buys at least 1 new one per year.

That's a great costume. I was Tweety Bird once when I was younger. Not only was it a hot costume, but the head was huge and heavy.

That is fabulous! I wish someone at my job would make me laugh like that. Of course, it would be WAY too hot. I think it is 87 degrees here today.
