Favorite Photo Friday - Leopard Princess


We're starting to think about Halloween at our house! No, I'm not just talking just about costumes -- I'm talking about Halloween candy! Yes -- it's true -- I've already purchased Halloween candy and eaten it all up (though I did have some help!). I'm trying, really trying, to not buy any more until it is closer to Halloween. Geez -- I wish the stores would quit tempting me with all the little snack sizes of my fav candies. Who can resist 5 or 6 of those small Mr. Goodbar's??? Not me!


Anyway, last year Maddy was a leopard princess as you can see in the photos. This year, she already decided that she will be a witch. I usually wait until at least October to buy a Halloween costume, but this year we saw the costume, she liked it, it was on sale, so we bought it. Only to find out that at school, they do have a Halloween party, but kids are not allowed to wear witch costumes!! OY!! Luckily -- the leopard princess costume still fits -- so she'll be a leopard princess by day and witch by night!

And, does anybody need a walker for their costume? Just found out today that we "bought" those walkers (yes, plural-- he had to have two - don't ask) for the Rickster -- I thought they were rented! Mr. Tennis usually wears a priest cassock for a costume -- he really looks good in it - -is that scary or just weird?? I couldn't find a photo with him in his priestly garb, but here he is a few years ago -- actually I think it was Maddy's first Halloween with us and she was a sweet little ladybug!

Gotta love the catholic schools.....no witches!!!

Nick's school doesn't allow them to dress up in the normal fashion...usually they have to do a book report and then dress up like the main character...this year, they are assigned a Saint....they have to dress up like a Saint....how fun(cough, cough)

Maddy looked like a lovely leopard princess and a beautiful bug!!!

Can't wait to see her all dressed up!

You are too funny about your bubby, but I could just see him in his priest garb!

Enjoy your weekend,

PS....I cannot buy H Candy either....it goes right to my hips...I cannot walk by the jar without grabbing!

She is so cute as a leopard princess. Sorry she can't wear her witch oufit to school. At the Catholic schooe that I attended we were only allowed to dress as saints - go figure!

I can't resist those little candy bars either - I've been eyeing them every time I go to Target - but have yet to putchase any as I know they would be gone long before Halloween.

Hope you have a nice week!
