Happy Halloween 2014

I think this is the 4th or 5th year the animals begged for Halloween costumes.  It's a big job finding costumes that will fit a small kitty, an 800 lb pig and a mammoth donkey, but ALWAYS it's fun.  I took about 60 pictures and it's hard to narrow them down to the best ones.  I began with the easiest, dressing up Baxter.  He's just like Lex when it comes to costumes; a really good sport.  All I have to say is, "smile for the camera, Baxter", and he does.
 Now that Willy is older she's much more uncooperative.  She ran off with her costume in her mouth and that was that, so I'm posting a picture I took of her about a month ago when she was a sweet, well-behaved kitten who allowed me to abuse her.
Pigs are always a challenge but Roxie has been in many photo shoots and knows how to work it.  She's no size 2 but she can pull off anything........because she's all about that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble (go ahead, you know you want to sing along), She's bringing booty baaaack..
Willo and Jaz loved the attention and let me try on everything I had in my bags.  Piggy back ride, anyone?
 Darla wanted to play that game too.

It was funny how many of them didn't mind glasses on their face.  At one point I went to get a picture of a goat and realized Willo was still wearing sunglasses and didn't seem a bit bothered.  Mickey looks especially chic in her shades.
Unlike his mother, Windsor was fascinated by the glasses.  Seriously, isn't he the most handsome steer you've ever seen?
 And he knows it.
Usually Cooper is the obvious goat for Halloween couture but he stinks to high heaven and I can hardly stand to be near him so poor Lily had to be eaten by the fierce dragon.
And finally, Mr. and Mrs. Elk Cliff farm.  Maybe you can tell what they're trying to be.

We went to a party tonight and not too many people knew what we were.  All of us brought candy and finger foods but when I snapped this next photo it was clear I haven't been feeding James enough.
I, on the other hand, have had my share of treats tonight.
