I just wanted to give you a peak at my son Parker dressed up for work. Yes I said work. His employer is The Nugget which is a high end supermarket in Northern California. Great place to shop and work. It is the 9th best employer in the nation. Wow! I was so happy when he got a job there. He has plans to make it a career because they have approached him about their interest in him. He has to get a business degree now instead of being a teacher like he planned. This company is growing leaps and bounds and he really likes working there. He could make a much better salary than teaching also. So we will see how that works out.
So they encourage there employees to dress up for Halloween and have a contest. Still don't know if he won yet but he made this outfit from scratch. They had no turtle outfits at the costume store so he and his friend went to a fabric store. They found these 2 plastic shields like a warrior would use. Covered them with yellow and green felt fabric. They used glue and duck tape. He bought a green sweat suit and the orange fabric for arms, legs and eyes. Then of course a brown sash for the waste and plastic nunchucks. He used green face paint and covered his face and hair! Tadaa! He worked Sat. and Sun. dressed like this!
So I felt kind of in a silly mood on Halloween and so I got out my Tigger outfit and sat out front with the bowl of candy and met the trick or treaters. It was so much fun! The little kids were the most impressed. When I saw them coming I would get up and silently do this little dance. They loved it. Some actually came across the street to me instead of going down that side of the street just to meet Tigger. In my right mitt there is a little recorder that when you push it says cute Tigger things. Of course in his voice. So Fun!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
