It's Bat Country

As promised, here are bat costume pictures. Unfortunately I was sidetracked per usual and didn't actually do any pumpkin carving. Maybe I'll get them in this week.

Best marbles ever!

These are the coolest marbles I have ever had the fortune to encounter. Also, Malia and I will be taking bat costume pictures tonight and hopefully I'll get them posted tonight too.

Oh, upcoming fun. Malia and I are going to Buddha's house Friday night to do some Halloween decorations and pumpkin carving. Trust me when I say that the pictures will be well worth the wait. (pretend there is a picture of an evil genius laughing and wringing his hands here... I don't have time to find one)

I am the best mom ever... or something like that.

So, Malia has decided on her Halloween costume and it's arrived at the home. The conversation leading up to said costume went something like this:

Malia: Mom, I've decided what I want to be for Halloween.
Me: Oh really? You decided which Princess you wanted to be?
Malia: I can't be a princess, mom. It's just not scary. I want to be a bat and I have to have wings that I can flap and fly around with.
Me: Oh, what made you decide to be a bat?
Malia: Well, I decided that I was something nice last year and I wanted to be something scary this year.
Me: So, bats are scary huh?
Malia: Yeah, I though maybe I would be a cat, but they just aren't scary enough. So, I decided to be a bat.
Me: ...
Malia: So, can I be a bat?
Me: Sure.

Sadly, this conversation is nearly verbatim. Here is a pic of the costume I purchased:

She is beyond excited to wear this costume out and about. Every day when we get home she informs me that Halloween is tomorrow so I better remember to put her in her bat costume. Every morning she then gets angry with me when I let her know that it's not, in fact, Halloween yet and that she has X amount of days left.

On the upside to this, she will wear her bat costume for about an hour in the evenings, which is an improvement on the running around in her panties. So it's win/win of sorts. She gets to be a bat for an hour every evening, and I don't have to holler at her to put on clothes for at least that long.
