The Cat in the Hat!

Maddy's list of "what to be" for Halloween was mixed this year --
a cat, a dog, a dinosaur (really?).  She tossed aside my
suggestion of "cheerleader" rather quickly!  :)

But when she and I were on a little shopping venture for a costume,
she quickly found the perfect get-up . . .
The Cat in the Hat!

It seemed just right as it is usually freezing in Nebraska
on Halloween and wearing a coat over a costume
is a definite no-no, but a onesie would be 
toasty warm!

And it was!
This year it was 80 on Halloween and the days leading
up to Halloween -- like when we went to Boo at the Zoo!
A photos with the zoo wizard (director) is required!

We tagged along with Jodee and Kamree after they
won free VIP tickets through our mutual orthodontist office.
We love that office! 

VIP is the way to go!!
No waiting in a long line to get in,
easy to get on the train - which is normally packed,
and dinner from Raising Canes - yum!
Thanks Jodee for taking us with you!!

By the way, I also did dress up for Halloween
and went trick or treating with Maddy!
She picked out a onesie for me too - Minnie Mouse!
It was adorable, but SOOOO hot!
Sorry -- we neglected to get a photo of the two of us together -
that may or may not have been an oversight!
We had hundreds of kids at our door and all over neighborhood!
I'm talking lines to get to houses for candy!!!!
Just about everyone ran out of candy by 7:30 pm.
Guess who my favorite neighbor was?
If you guessed the friendly neighbor guy that had
candy for the kids and a keg for the adults -- 
you'd be right!
Genius idea!

Boo at the Zoo was sooo much fun this year. Thanks again for the tag on FB and for joining us too!

P.S. We must see your costume too!

Love her costume! It was definitely warmer than usual here too but not that bad! We never know what we will end up with weather wise on that day. Everything from snow to crazy warm!
