Howl-o-ween Aftermath 2015

Cleaning up after Mongo’s Halloween was not as easy as Dad had first expected.  Mongo likes baths so that wasn’t the problem.  Actually, Mongo is not that crayzy about the bath part, but he likes getting toweled off after baths, so he tolerates the bath part.

When Mongo was all cleaned up, the hair-paint  left a ring around the tub that Dr. Seuss would have been proud of.

So Dad got on the internet and found the things he would need to make a really cool costume for Mongo.
