Extravaganza with a Bumblebee!

Say hi to M the Bumblebee.  

Edited to Add:  Somehow I completely deleted the first paragraph before posting.  I didn't even tell you where we were!  My sister-in-law's employer throws a Halloween Extravaganza every year, and we've always taken M. She had a blast.  She ran around a bunch (didn't really care about any of the many activities they had set up), got a chance to hang with her TeeTee, got a chance to hang with her friends K and N, and went for ice cream afterwards.  She loved it!

I always order M's costumes in September so I don't have to worry about the good costumes selling out/not having her size.  I hid it from her a whole month, though, because I knew that she'd want to wear it every day.  So the night before the Halloween Extravaganza, I tried it on her.  WHAT WAS I THINKING?  She loved it and went CRAZY when I told her she had to take it right back off.  It was bedtime, so it wasn't like I could let her wear it for a few hours to play.  It was PJ time!  

After much drama (including M going into our room, closing the door, crawling under the covers and insisting that she was "sick" in order for me to leave her alone), I eventually felt bad for her.  Not because she claimed to be sick (How does a toddler know how to PRETEND to be sick to get out of something?  Dra-ma.), but because I know how much my child likes dressing up (particularly in tutus/skirts). I can't really expect her to try on a tutu (and wings!) and then expect her to take it right back off.  That's just mean.  So I let her play until her daddy got home.  I knew HE could get her to take it off -- he gives her that serious voice, and she's all ears.  (She totally pretends not to hear me sometimes.)

We have some pictures just like these from last year's extravaganza.  She's still looks the same but has lost some of the baby roundness.  (Oh, if you haven't seen her costume from her first year at the extravaganza, it's a must see.  Total cuteness.)

The kid's still not afraid of characters.  In fact, she gets pretty impatient when she sees them and wants to go hug them immediately.  

We didn't have a Big Al episode like last year.  Thankfully.

Her friends K and N.

N is so sweet to M.

Strawberry ice cream like her daddy (I've never liked strawberry).

She was in heaven.

Thanks, TeeTee, for a great night!  Have a great weekend, guys!
