Family Fun

4 Bees + The Beekeeper

October 31, 2011

Four Honey Bees and The Keeper went out
The Keeper said, “Let’s see what Halloween’s all about!”
The Mama Bee said, “What shall we do?”
The Furry one said, “We could all go BOO!?”
The Bubba one said, “There’s a baby bee in that hive!”
And coming in May it will soon arrive
The excited little family sang their busy little song
As they went about town having fun all nightlong.
Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz!
A big thank you to Brandy Cardarelli Photography!

      I’m kinda secretly hoping for a boy (for Gage’s sake) but would be thrilled if it’s a little baby doll. This pregnancy has been entirely different (extremely sick)… so who knows?

    • Reply missy November 3, 2011 at 2:11 pm

      Dude… incredibly sick with this one. Hence, sometimes the slacking on the blog now and again. Some days I literally upchuck all day long. Hoping that I’m just a few weeks away from some relief! I use a Nikon D5000. 🙂

    Where did you get the bees and the pail from? Also how do you attach bees to the costume? It’s a cute idea. Thanks.

  • Reply Emi October 10, 2014 at 1:52 am

    Where did you find your wings? or did you make them? if you made them, can you tell me what you used to make them? Also, where did you find the little bees for your husband’s costume? did you make those?
