Happy Halloween from the Hummingbird and the Panda!
I’ll admit it was a little hard for me to swallow the idea of a panda costume at first, but Fletcher totally owned it. He wore his costume to school on Friday, to the school evening Halloween activities, where we won the parent-child bake off with some pretty spectacular bloody glass cupcakes, to his orchestra Halloween concert on Saturday and then trick-or-treating Saturday night. And if it ever decides to cool down around here, I’m pretty sure he will wear it to sleep in all winter!
Lola Gray designed her beautiful Hummingbird costume, and together we constructed it more-or-less to her specifications. I love how sweet and creative she is, and that Halloween is still an opportunity to enter a beautiful fantasy world. I hope she holds on to that forever.
Plus, we managed not to kill each other in the process of finishing the costume! I’d call that a successful Halloween!
