The Bee Costume – 2014.

Yep, it’s that time of year again. Candy Corn Day is nearly upon us and there’s no time like the present to figure out who wears the Bee Costume the best for that all important job of handing over the goods to young trick-or-treaters. Gotta look good at the door, you know!

Loaf Bee! Clearly, you can see Tessa’s in the spirit. NOT! Still, better than she did a couple of years ago.

Tessa: Hey! Wanna give me a hand out of this thing?

Ruby: Wanna ask someone you weren’t chasing like a toy all month?

Viola gives the costume a shot… and isn’t enthused one bit.

The Bee Costume was originally bought for Maxx who usually wears it well. He’s so tolerate here, we think, because he has a love for all things bee.

This year, Pia ‘joined in’ on the fun. We happened to have caught her just before her midday nap. We think she makes a pretty bee. She thought we were being idiots and wasn’t amused in the least. Funny, that.

And the best Bee of the year goes to Zuzu, who sat as a bee just as sweet and nice as you please for a long while. And then later, she went and picked on someone probably because they were doing something without a permit. As we all know, bees can be unpredictable!

I like veggies. It’s how I maintain my supermodel good looks. A good, green veggie is worth its weight in…

Patrol Sergeant Zuzu, ready for duty – 2014 © Colehaus Cats

We mentioned last month how Zuzu had appointed herself as a kind of sheriff here at Colehaus, a position she takes very, very seriously. Nothing, and we do mean nothing, gets by her without her inspection and go-ahead approval. Where did this behavior come from? Were we that unstructured and lax in our day-to-day lives? Guess so…

What is this? You can’t leave crinkly paper just laying around like this? Not without a permit!

It’s a good thing someone’s paying attention around here! This feather could have up and walked…. uh, nevermind. This feather is dedded. Still, you’ll need a permit if your plans include leaving this here.

No, mom, you cannot read any of these books until I’ve checked and verified each and every one. And I’ll get right on that, right after my noontime nap. Patrol work is a tiresome, but important job, and someday, you’ll thank me for stepping up and whipping this household into shape! Come back in an hour and we’ll see about getting you the right permit.
