Two Lobsters and a Fisherman Walk Into a Bar...


OK. I just had to say that. Doesn't it sound like the beginning of a bad joke? Well, you'll be happy to note that we didn't take our little lobsters and fisherman to any bars. Rather, we took them took them to a select few neighbors to go trick-or-treating. While most kids were out dressed like super heroes and giant babies, I conjured up some lobsters out of an old blanket, and dug out some of James' old clothes for Katie to be a fisherman. Like her lobster trap? :) Its a bird feeder with a plastic lobster in it. While the kids loved their costumes, especially James, I know it won't be long before they'll want to pick what they wear for Halloween. Oh, well. I did refrain, for the record, from making pats of butter out of yellow felt to sew onto them. That woulda' been funny!
