Tricks Or Treats

Since sheep can't read the calendar, we decided that they could celebrate Halloween today rather than in the miserable cold rain of Friday :-o.


Baaxter Black


"What's wrong with Baaxter's hat?"



"I think there's something wrong with that mustache!"

Maisie gets her own post tomorrow.  And it's not exceptionally flattering :-o.  


Murphy and Spud wore cowboy wild rags.  Maisie wore No Costume...but ate treats like she did.


"Whaddya mean I'm dressing up as a wild Indian?" (Please excuse the politically incorrectness :-/)


Woody loved his "feathered" headdress (I channeled my best inner kindergartner to design that - obviously).  Part of the time he wore it behind his ears, part in front.  He'd probably still be wearing it if we'd have left it on him.  It suits him ;-).

Update - It dawned on me this morning that the headdress thing I'm remembering from kindergarten was actually a TURKEY made with your hand outline.  Still fitting for that crazy, goofball sheep I think! :-D


Lots of Treats!



Hershey, Daniel and Chocula came over and were quite disappointed that they didn't get to dress up again this year eat lots of treats.  I'm afraid there may be some Tricks tonight.  We are sleeping with one eye open!


This is at least the 8th year Stella and I have made sheep costumes.  The hot glue queens!


Poor Spud missed out on most of the pictures.  You've got to be pretty assertive to fight your way in with this bunch of cowboys...and an Indian ;-).

Keep going with those glue guns, ladies! Great use of the Second Amendment ;)

is Baxter Black still alive? You should send the first photo to NPR - I bet they'd get it to him, if he is.

Wearing that headdress for one day is simply not enough for Woody. Now that you know its provenance, you must adorn him again on Thanksgiving. The "feathers" really set off his curls.

Itching to see what (bwa ha ha!) plans you have for Maisie!

The first picture is a calendar photo!
What a great idea to dress Baaxter up as himself.
The mustache is right on!

I hate reading your blog. It makes me want to find a sheep to hug!! The sheep (with or without costumes) are adorable! What characters!

Maureen said...

OMG! How the heck do you make adorable sheep even MORE adorable? Costumes! Brilliant!

I absolutely loved this!

Susan said...

You two are too much! LOVE the costumes!

KC said...

Love all the sheep and the costumes make them even more lovable. BTW, tell Stella I really like her name. It is also my new dog's name. Hope she doesn't mind;)

Really cute!

I think Baxter and Woody need to be Mr. October and November on 2016 calendars. All too cute.

Terry said...

Oh my goodness, now I've seen everything! Too cute!

What fun!! Good for you moving Halloween to a better day. We were in Southern Indiana and it snowed on Halloween ...people were NOT happy. :)
