The Ballerina & The Chicken

Well, it looks like it’s going to be a low maintenance Halloween.

Elliott wants to be a ballerina instead of Dorothy.


I really wanted her to skip around door-to-door in her ruby slippers and blue and white gingham dress, hair in braids and a little basket on her arm with Toto peeking out!

Oh well. She wants to wear her costume from June’s dance recital…

Remember this one?

I tried to tell her she could be a “Dorothy Ballerina” and wear a tutu under her blue and white gingham dress.

Uh. No. Not goin’ for it.

So a recycled dance recital ballerina it is!

Holdy will also be going green and recycling a hand-me-down chicken costume from Babystyle.

Man I miss that place. They had the BEST costumes.

Both my kiddos were the peacock….LOVED that one!

Of course, he will be an organic, free range, grass fed chicken.

There you have it.

The Aspiras’ are reducing, reusing and recycling this Halloween.

Done and done.

Looking forward to our annual pot o chili and jalapeƱo cornbread muffins after we trick-or-treat. Searching for my goulish cocktail for this year…last year’s was more like a trick, not a treat.

Any spooky suggestions for Halloween Happy Hour?

Happy Tuesday!
