It’s an attempted Halloween squirrel takeover! Whew, thank dog for the Squirrel Patrol being right there on the scene to stop the process! Squirrels are the theme of our costume set this year. It didn’t exactly work out as hoped, but we think you will get the idea. This year is tough with four of us, one boy, who is also a puppy. Next year, we may all do our own thing instead.
Mom found these squirrel patrol shirts on sale and decided they would be fun for costumes and easy for Nelson to deal with. Originally, Mom was going to put our stuffed squirrels all around us, and we would be holding our trick or treat pails. As you can see in my photo, I have no problem with the plan.
Enter Nelson. Not only will he not wear a hat or glasses, he won’t hold his pail either. Mom put out some squirrels and he would not stop trying to play with them. It was decided to just add a couple cartoon squirrels instead. Nelson is a good boy and he does try hard, but some things are too much at his age.
Madison did well with her assignment. Mom also got two stuffed surfing squirrels for Madison and Olivia to wear on their backs. They are not very stable and like to fall over, and it is almost impossible to see the surf board in the photos. They are cute squirrels in their flowered swimming trunks.
Then we have Olivia who would not hold her treat pail in her mouth. She has a bigger surfing squirrel on her back and I think he is waving at you!
Trying to get all four of us in position, and to stay in position, doing what we were asked to do was nearly impossible. We did manage to stop the squirrel takeover, thank goodness! No problem, we had fun, and the costume idea was not bad, just a bit over our learning curve this year. We wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween!
