Last night I finished Little Red’s costume, having finished Boy Blue’s the night before. It was late, but I am so happy they are done! Little Red danced around in his costume all morning, proudly proclaiming:
“I’m a carrot!”
Two months ago when I asked him what he wanted to be for Hallowe’en he named his betrothed. Once I told him I was unable to help him with that, he said thoughtfully, “um, a carrot!” He kept up with the same answer for a month so I knew it was time to get cracking. He is actually two carrots, as he has two legs.
And what of Boy Blue? Well, peas, of course. My boys are peas and carrots. I’m over my anxiety of people thinking he’s a pumpkin. How can anyone think he’s a pumpkin when he goes around proudly announcing his carrot status? And anyone who does think he’s a pumpkin instead of carrots has no imagination; instead of being offended I’m just sorry for them.
So here you are, folks, our yearly photos:
