Since we can’t go trick or treating, we’re going camping instead!! Halloween is the best time for scary stories by the fire and tasty marshmallows. Hopefully we don’t get woodland creatures showing up to steal our treats!
The most epic of family halloween costumes and the most epic camping trip too!
Costume fitting snapshots: This year’s shaggy blue yarn doesn’t hold its shape the same way as the yarn Mom usually uses for my costumes, so at first, Mom was worried my costume wouldn’t fit right. But this blue yarn unexpectedly is a bit stretchy, which means it snaps snugly over the edges of my shell to fit me perfectly!
Blue is definitely your color, Kirby!
As one of our favorite holidays comes to an end (I mean.. treats.. its part of the slogan) Heres a collection of Zoya’s costumes over the years!
We hope you had a great Halloween!
Remember! Always Nom Responsibly; Nap between bites!
If you aren’t a fan of Frankie Tortoise Tales yet you really should be! His halloween costume is a force to be reckoned with! Even though he didn’t win first place at the petsmart competition (come on a puppy in a bee costume? thats cute and all but LOOK AT FRANKIE!) I was told he attended another event and received 1st place as he deserved!
You rule Frankie!

This year we lost our incredible friend Frankie. He taught us so many things… like how to ram things, how to charm a crowd, and how to win best Halloween costume ever!
Here he is as a UFO… unidentifed FRANKIE object 😀 The most epic of costumes. We miss you frankie! Hope you’re noming all the dandelions in the sky. <3
Human said if I wore this costume and walked around I would get treats! The tree had no dandelions and that statue just looked at me funny. I think this is the trick part of trick or treat. I better get to nom that pumpkin.
Happy Shell-o-ween from Tort-time!
It was a warm Halloween that year so Zoya thought she’d dress up as a garden shark.. you know. lurks in the greens noming your flowers. Ferocious!
