A Mickey and Minnie Mouse Halloween

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum LOVE Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. If we're having a bad day Mickey can turn it around in a heartbeat. During the day I get M2 following me around the house holding out the remote for me to take from her and saying in her cute little voice "bickey. bickey mommom?" Oh my gosh. It's hard to resist but I must because good moms don't just let them watching Mickey all day long. 
So, they were mickey and minnie mouse for halloween. I wasn't sure they understood. On halloween day M1 had therapy. I had a client coming for a set of nails so they went to g-ma and g-pa beams for a few house after therapy. They were dressed up in their costumes. We took M2's skirt and tutu off for a nap and when  she woke up she took them off the bed and gave them to grandma and said "monnie!" (yes, it sounds like money when she says minnie). I spent a good chunk of time making their costumes so I was SO happy to hear that she understood who she was dressing up as!

For our ward halloween party S and I  "dressed up" as Kermit and Miss Piggy. I was planning to borrow a blonde wig from my sister-in-law but didn't get around to it. I threw together the little green thing around S's neck about 5 minutes before the party and my sister did my make up to pigg-ify me. I felt REALLY old at the party thanks in part to all the neighbor kids not know who Kermit and Miss Piggy are. WHAT?!?!?!  What are you people teaching your children? j/k All in all it was a lot of fun. It's fun for that chance once a year to dress up and be silly.
