Happy Halloween

This was originally planned as "Happy Halloween from Maisie!", but one thing we learned last night was don't put all your candy in one basket. Luckily I decided at the last minute that ALL the lambs should get to Trick or Treat this year, so Stella, Auntie Reg and I whipped up "costumes" for everyone.

Of all the lambs in the world who should not care about wearing a wizards cape, it should be Maisie.  She used to love to dress up!  This was the only good picture I got.  Maybe she's still sore about Easter ;-).

"I'm a Hershey Kiss?  I don't get it."

"I'm Count Chocula and Daniel Not-Boone is Daniel Boone?"

"We don't really get it either and why does he get to wear a (coonskin) hat?"

The boys didn't mind a bit about wearing costumes, not even when Chocula's cape kept falling over his head.  They ate a couple cookies and then had fun grazing in the yard.

Maisie had a huge meltdown and went bucking around the barn and her gold stars looked like shooting stars.  I took the cape off in hopes that would settle her down, but she had no intention of playing along and as soon as she could flip her hat off...

...she butted it into the ground and then pawed it!!!

Hershey and Weaslie kept trying to trick or treat, long after treat time was over.

And poor Iris...The Long Suffering Border Collie.

"I've always hated Maisie."

An orderly walk back to the barn (as opposed to kicking and leaping and bucking and other general bad behavior from naughty Maisie!).  I love how close Chocula and Daniel are walking.  They are the best 'dopted brothers.

Daniel looks a little worried about facing the music with the big kids.  Maisie had already gone out and tattled to Hank about the whole thing.  Kids... ;-)

Happy Halloween!

P.S. I added in a missing picture of Petunia and her beautiful sweater and some notes about the pictures from yesterday's post.

The Hersey's Kiss is perfect and poor Iris...the indignities that Border Collies have to suffer.

Alice said...

Maisie doesn’t need a wizards cap and cape because she is your own magical wonder and she knows it!!
Just knew Hershey would don a Kiss cap and be a good sport about it because he is naturally sweet!
Adorable costumes!

Maureen said...

Awesome costumes! I laughed out loud - thanks always for the huge smiles.

Happy Halloween to one and all!

OMG, Sara! You have me laughing so hard I'm crying. At work, no less.

Maisie really is a rascally princess, isn't she!

And sweet, sweet Hershey -- I could just eat him up.

So, what about Comby and Betsy?? No costumes for cats? ;-)

Thank you so much for bringing such cheer to my day. Hershey is hysterical and silly Maisie. She used to love clothes. Happy Halloween.

Once again Sara you outdid yourself, great pictures, great scenery, great sheep, hugs to Iris. Love it, did you glue Hershey's Kiss and Daniel's "Coonskin" cap on?

I know, I know. I blew it. Poor Maisie and her moron mother... Maybe next year ;-).

Alice said...

Hey...., the day is not over yet! There's still time to redeem yourself. Here in Cincinnati trick or treating has been postponed until tomorrow. :-)
Happy Day You First Hugged Punkin !

Sheepmom said...

Oh. My. Gosh. So much cuteness and creativity in one place! Poor Maisie. "I didn't want this stupid costume Mom! I want to be a pink princess!" And the boys are such good sports. Daniel Not Boone dressed as Daniel Boone. TOo funny. And of course Hershey had to wear a Kiss, but it kind of looks like the tinfoil beanies that keep aliens from reading your thoughts. Just sayin'.

karen said...

the hershey kiss is the best costume ever and I am quite partial to chocolate in any form :)

Love the photos and seeing the very beautiful woolly sheep

Susan said...

Miss Maisie, a girl after my own heart...costumes, bah hahaha

Stacey said...

Adorable! They are all absolutely wonderful. We love our sheeps!

The picture of Chocula and Daniel with their costumes flapping over their heads made me laugh out loud. Love those two!
