By now you know it's pretty typical for mom to get some absurd idea for pictures. How many pumpkin patches have I been thrown in? How many Halloween costumes do I own? You get the idea.
So I didn't even act a little surprised when mom was all, "Hey Peep, do you want to take some Wizard of Oz themed pictures?" I would have protested but she whipped out an awesome twirly dress for me and I was totally sold.
I can't say the rest of the group felt the same way. The Tin-Lab was pretty pissed about her hat. And the Lion was more colicky than cowardly.
But I sure enjoyed myself.
As it turns out, if you give a lion a b-guck, she'll probably fall asleep. (Hmm, that sounds like a good book proposal for a certain series I like...)
And we did make a pretty cute pair.
No shock to me, mom's vision didn't exactly come to pass...
...but we sure tried.
Once mom gave up, I got to work on my twirly-dress spinning skills.
