Then I don't remember if I had to make a new kangaroo costume for Aden the following year or if she just wore the same one again in 2005. I have a feeling she wore the same one because that costume remained a regular part of her wardrobe all that year.
Here she is on Halloween as a kangaroo staring down death while Mona goes to find him some candy.
So this year's is I think my sixth? Seventh? I feel like 'kangaroo costume maker' should be in my official bio somewhere, or on my tombstone one day.
Aden has also been a dragon and a porcupine,
so she's not as lacking in variety as I was as a kid when I was pretty much a mouse every year, but when she looks back at her childhood one day (with what I hope are fond memories) she will most likely associate Halloween with being dressed as a kangaroo. The 2012 version is still in pieces on the dining room table, however it should pretty much turn out like the past kangaroo costumes but big enough for a ten year old.
