Halloween Triple Threat

In an attempt to cover all my bases, please everybody, maximize my readership, and expose my doormat-itude, I present to you Photo Story Friday, Haiku Friday, AND My Required Boo'd Post.

 I have gotten boo'd
Here's a Halloween Haiku
Now you've been boo'd, too!

Yes, in my haiku, I have Boo'd you all. If you've read it, you've been Boo'd. And there is no way to prove to me that your eyes didn't fall upon the words, even fleetingly. So Boo, You! The only person who has a pass is the outrageous (and beautiful and skinny and very clearly insane) Tena over at My Therapy, since she Boo'd me. But don't worry, I have way too much on my mind right now (see photo below) to keep track of those who take me at my word, and those who ignore everything I say. So consider it a gift, and do with it what you will.

And finally, to address Photo Story Friday, here's a re-run (back by popular demand) from last Halloween, in keeping with the obvious theme of today's festivities. Yes, it's Sister Mary Beans, my 11 yo cross-dresser. This year, he is taking it to the next level and is dressing up as a fairy princess cow. I, too, see the obvious need for therapy, but he has long division to concentrate on, so I am ignoring the red flags for now.

This message has been brought to you, but probably not approved by, Cecily and MamaGeek, the thoughtful creators and caretakers of Photo Story Friday.

I came over from Tena...

I love your nun/fairy. :) My youngest who just turned 4 asked to be a queen- I told him that probably wouldn't work out. He is going to be Peter Pan instead, which his brother refused to be because its sissy.

Hope you all have a great Halloween!

Oh, my...that picture is hysterical!

We had trick or treat last night and saw some interesting fairies...it's the one day a year boys are allowed to cross dress without being given a hard time, right? They were having fun with it and it made us giggle.

Happy Halloween!

When I was 13 I dressed as a nun along with my Dad. He took me and a friend up to South Street in Philadelphia to see all the other Crazys. He got lots of attention as nun, and Im sure your son did too. Sounds like he has a great sense of humor. Happy Halloween.

Oregon Elkhorns said...

Lindsay said...

May the peace of Jesus Christ be with you.

And also with you.

Sorry, I'm a Catholic. I just had too.

That's absolutely hilarious...and creative...that your son wanted to be a nun for Halloween.

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

Haha I want a picture of this year's costume. Sounds hilarious. I've been Boo'ed previously so I'll pass. :) Great way to lump all posts together.

Honey Mommy said...

You are hilarious. I can't wait to see photos of the fairy princess cow. What a costume that must have been!

I have a hard time deciding between Haiku Friday and Photostory Friday too. This week I did both too! I guess I should just chose one each week, huh?

Hannah Noel said...
