Halloween 2013

If you don’t know me well, you probably don’t know how obsessed I am with Halloween costumes. I love Halloween strictly because of the opportunity to dress up as whatever you can dream of and create. I LOVE IT.

I’m really proud of our past costumes. They’ve even been floating around Pinterest, which makes me feel pretty cool. I had a friend tell me last week she saw pics of our costumes last year show up in a Google search she did. Nobody really knows who I am, so I’m not popular or famous, but my creations are! Suh-weeeet!

Alright… Without me blabbering on and on, let me introduce this year’s costume theme for our family.


Graham is obsessed with Ylvis’s What Does the Fox Say. And I can’t blame him. He’s one-and-a-half, he loves animals and music, and that song actually has a great beat (and is freaking hilarious and well done, even if it is completely ridiculous–let’s be honest). Graham asks to watch it when he wakes up in the morning and immediately after every nap every day. We usually watch it at least 5 times a day. I have the entire thing memorized (not by choice, mind you).

Here it is, if you’re living in the dark ages or have been rebelling against watching it.

When Graham wakes up in the morning, within five minutes of seeing us he’ll say, “Fah-fah? Ha-tee! Ha-tee!” After every nap, he says the same thing. And if he sees my phone, my computer, or my husband’s laptop, it’s always, “Fah-fah? Fah-fah?

We decided to play up this new found favorite song of Graham’s.

May I present….

Me: “Graham, just keep the fox ears on for 30 more seconds!”
Bob: “Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringering!”

Until next year, which I’m already debating about, Happy Halloween!!

    I came to your blog from a comment on another blog. Anyway, just had to compliment you on your costumes. I LOVE the song, as do my two older children (ages 4 & 2). I had dreams of doing something similar, but their desires won out and we instead had two dragons protecting their princess (5 months). Anyway, clever and very well executed.
