Micheal Phelps and A Ladybug

I have pix of the grandbabies!!!! Just a quickie to show off and to make you laugh with a shot I took of Grayson.

We saw the babies after they endured a hard night of Trick or Treating. Poor Grayson was scared by this meanie that answered his door with this mask that would have scared Vincent Price. So, after that, he sat in the car while the rest of the kids went to get his candy for him. Kaydi Jo had spit up on her costume, but we were able to salvage the lady bug tutu and her antennas(antennae?) She was the cutest 7 month old lady bug I have ever seen!!! My mom thought so, too. She and Gammy hogged her all night. (sigh. That elder respect blah blah blah)
Grayson went as Michael Phelps. When you asked him who he was, he would answer, "MichaelPhelps", as one word. When I answered the door, there he stood with his swim cap crushing his skull and making him look like a Cromagnum Man, smashing his forehead down.

How funny is this shot? AHHHH! Relief! With the swim cap off, he is showing his 8 gold medals.
Hope you had a great Halloween and got lots of goodies!!! Now I am off to rummage through my kid's sacks. Thank God Claire can't eat chocolate...

8 kids? awesome. seriously. i grew up as one of five kids. i stopped at three. but maybe not so much by choice.

i think Gammy should have been home resting from the shopathon instead of hogging that adorable ladybug

Tiffany said...

LMAO They are so cute! And damn how I wish I was clever enough to think of costumes like Phelps. LOL

Debbie said...

That swim cap does look terribly painful! But kudos for the idea.

Michael Phelps - so original and totally cute!!

And Kaydi Jo the lady bug, seriously, how can anything possibly be THAT cute!? I wouldn't let her go either.

Cool and creative!!! The little ladybug is so adorable! Was she getting some candy too?

Tenakim said...

She is freaking adorable- I see you have been sucked into the phenomena that is "cute ladybugs", too- I bet she smelled a LOT better than my ladybugs, too- I want your kind!

Mamahut said...

Eight medals, how cute. I used to hate swimming caps, they don't make you look very pretty!

binks said...

They are sooooo cute!
I am jealous you got all that cuteness to love on.
We had ladybugs at our place too (but not as cute and sweet as yours), but the Phelps idea?
Ingeneous!

Scary Mommy said...

They are so cute!!! Those faces!! And Michael Phelps? Awesome.

Justine said...

Aw, they are sooooooooo cute! That swim cap was just a wee bit too tight.

Justine :o )

Dawn said...

Jill... those grandbabies are just precious!! I love their costumes!

Grayson's little wrinkled forehead cracks me up!

Annie said...

So cute! I had a really good Michael Phelps come to my door! What a good idea!

That is one hawt ladybug. And, I think Michael P is a great costume. I saw a little Chinese-American girl who was 4 dressed as a Chinese gymnast - and it was GREAT, too.

Soxy Deb said...

Kaydi is definitely the cutest ladybug ever! I love that picture.
Poor Grayson. I don't like it when people scare the babies. It makes me want to hurt someone. Then again, how much better does it get that you can get someone to get your candy for you and never have to get out of the car? He may have planned the whole thing.

Deb said...

Cute cute ladybug. I steal my kids candy too. Bad us. Bad, bad, bad us.

I think I'll go see what else I can snitch from them...

Marla said...
