Sweet Relief – Picture Fall, day 29

Well, I’ve broken the streak again this month.  My creative juices felt tapped out yesterday afternoon by the time I got around to considering my photo prompt:  Capture a little something sweet today; whatever it is that tickles your taste buds.  It isn’t really an excuse, but this past week had me helping my girls figure out and do make-up  for their Halloween parties at the dance studio.  That doesn’t sound like much, but each of my girls goes to the studio on three different days each week, and would either of my girls be content to wear the same costume all three days?  Of course not!  This is the one time of the year that I am thankful for the piles of old dance costumes that reside in this house.  But I digress.  I had no ideas whatsoever for how to make a picture of candy or cookies or the like something out of the ordinary and worthy of photographing last night.  Meghan suggested, “How about you carve the pumpkin and have it barfing up piles of candy?”  I chuckled at the idea, but after dinner had been cleaned up last night I wanted nothing more than to crash on the couch and relax.  Today, however, was a different story!

Picture Fall, day 29

Because of this photo prompt, I’ve had this little diddy playing in my head for the last 24 hours:

  3. HILARIOUS! I love it!
    And please tell your girls that they are lucky to have a great mom like you, because *I* would have made MY girls wear the same costume all three days 😉

    • Oh, believe me Michaela, if we didn’t have many years of dance costumes easy to convert into Halloween costumes with a few tweaks, they’d be wearing the same costume all week.

    • I had to go for the humor on that one – my creative juices were running low for that prompt!
