Halloween Buzzzzzzz

We had a pretty great Halloween this year. Rob is a BIG fan of group costumes so we where on the look out in September for an all-family costume idea when we stumbled into a new Bee Keeper shop on 20th and Mission.

Low and behold, our search was over. Harper Sue Bee would be accompanied by her two Bee Keepers. Grandma Corzine made a cozy costume for the little buzzer and I covered the Bjorn in accompanying stripes. We made hive mates for Harper out of yellow and black pipe cleaners and (to Rob’s horror) I added small pictures of Harper’s face to mine.

Here’s us on Fair Oaks street in the Mission. This 3 block area is where all the local kids come to trick or treat and where all the homeowners pull out the stops for a ghoulishly good time. We got lot’s of “ahhhh”‘s and compliments on our walk down Valencia and only two groups mistaken us for exterminators (aka: VERY bad parents).

We distributed all our honey sticks, headed home, got Harper Sue Bee to her hive, welcomed the nanny, and headed out to our friend Keri’s party.

We made up a new dance that included some swatting moves, hung out with some of our favorite peeps, learned to drink beer through our mesh hoods, hive-fived at least twice on our way home, and where in bed by midnight.
