Remember Drusilla? She is once more out on display. This whole house for sale business had me stowing a whole bunch of stuff in a storage unit. That decluttering thing. It would seem that I was overly optimistic over accomplishing a quick sale because I tucked away a tote of Halloween decorations! Last week I retrieved it and freed Miss Drusilla from her bubble wrap cocoon. I have just decided to make her an honorary MacBroome sister. It's only fitting.

Methinks this is perhaps in October of 2000. And I'm pretty sure I've posted this pic before. Miss Tallulah is witching it up while Reid escorts her, or something. Michael is crouching next to a minion consisting of a shop vac topped with a foam skull head wearing a monk's robe. The eye patch is because we could only find one eyeball superball. He's a pirate minion. On wheels. Arrrrrggggg!

Perhaps my finest moment in kiddie costuming. Reid (fanfare!) as Mr. Potatohead! Holding a Mr. Potatohead! Just above Mr P's eyes and just below the brim of his hat, we can see an anxious looking Reid peering out. I can't draw a recognizable Mr. Potatohead to save my life. But I sure as heck can sew one.

From a previous life when I was a vegetable. This would be, as we fondly called it, The Little House on the Alley. I actually made this costume the previous year for my boss's elementary school aged daughter. Yes, I removed a bit of stuffing so my grownup sized body would fit inside. The hat was one size fits all, which is usually a cruel trick. Certainly not a treat. And, yes, I was wearing bike shorts underneath. How could you begin to think I went commando.

Well, look at this! It's the MacBroome-Shuttlecock sisters again! And this time I can tell who they are! On the left is Heidi dressed as a Holstein, in the middle is Frigga as the frisky milk maid, and on the right is Grace the cat. Sort of a sketchy barnyard theme. Demonstrating that we clearly understand the concept of growing older without growing up.
