Halloween Costume Fun! Cutest Baby Skunk Ever?

Sexy Nerd takes it upon himself every year to dole out the Halloween candy. Interacting with trick-or-treaters and their hovering parents is a bit much for antisocial me, so this works out perfectly. It's also an ideal situation for the kids, because Sexy Nerd is a pushover and easily forgets all about my stingy "2 candies each" rule whenever a child with an adorable costume or sweet voice shows up at our door, scooping up enormous handfuls of candy instead.

Our first year in our home, one trick-or-treater was a little boy dressed as a skunk. He was only about 2 and had the Most.Adorable.Costume.Ever, along with an irresistible "Twick-or-Tweat Pwease". His mom was holding his bag of candy at the end of our driveway, so he held out his furry, mittened skunk hands. Sexy Nerd was no match for the cuteness and gladly forked over a massive handful of Tootsie Rolls, Caramels, and Gummy Candy Corn into his waiting paws. 

"Thank you," said the little skunk, trying to hold all of the candy. He dropped a piece and bent down to pick it up.

"Thank you," he said upon retrieving the candy, only to have another piece slip out of his grip.

Can you guess where this is going?

"Thank you," he said, picking up the piece while dropping two more.

Moral of the story? Stick to your wife's 2 candy rule, Sexy Nerd! It was pretty darn cute though, and Sexy Nerd brings up the Little Skunk story every Halloween. Because of this, it was easy to make my decision when asked to do a blog review for Wholesale Halloween Costumes, especially when I saw that they feature infant costumes.
Oh, the cute furriness of the Baby Velvet Skunk!

Of course, Sexy Nerd and I are planning to stay baby-free for at least another year or two, and we couldn't have a perfectly good costume sitting in the guest bedroom closet on Halloween.

Biscuit didn't mind the skunk feet.

In fact, she probably enjoyed making Pica jealous. She's mean like that.
Surprisingly, Biscuit seemed fine with wearing the skunk hat.
 Cuter than a baby?

Apparently, though, the skunk tail is SCARY!

 "It's gonna get me!"
Pica, who looks completely thrilled to dress up like a skunk, wishes you a Happy Halloween.
