Farmers and twin baby cows, that’s my concept for Halloween 2013. This idea springs from my having acquired two free baby cow costumes off the local parents’ list serv. I can’t wait to see the babies dressed as little cows. I can’t wait to take them out and show them off. I can’t wait to see other babies dressed in costumes.
I’ve never been that into Halloween before. In fact I can’t remember the last time I dressed up. I think it was in college when I half-heartedly stuck a few glow-in-the-dark stars on myself and said I was the night sky.
But something about the babies is bringing out my Halloween spirit. It isn’t just me, either. D bought a pumpkin and says we are going to carve it. A big pumpkin. I can see this happening with other holidays, too: Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Christmas. We’ll have to show the babies how it’s done. They will keep us in line.
Personally, I can’t wait to eat three-musketeers bars and reminisce about the costumes I made in elementary school. So this works out pretty well for me, too.
