I wanted Mason to get into the Thanksgiving spirit this year, but it never occurred to me to dress him up like the main course. Tori Spelling, however, did just that when she decked her six-week-old daughter Hattie Margaret out as a roast turkey complete with a side of veggies. According to US, the reality TV celeb explained that her daughter’s creative costume was a “fun Thanksgiving craft project”:
“If you have a baby at home, here’s a fun Thanksgiving craft project you can make for what will be very memorable holiday photos,” Spelling explained on her official website. “Your older kids will love helping to make this for their baby bro or sis — Stella loved gluing the faux veggies on the faux platter.”
Realizing that the pictures might one day embarrass her little girl, the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum offered a preemptive apology.
“Sorry to future 18 year-old Hattie. It was too cute an idea to pass up,” Spelling wrote. “If it’s any solace, you wore turkey well!”
I find the photo pretty hilarious. We call Mason “Meat” at home (Bug is another nickname that I use in this blog) and I immediately thought of him dressed up like a steak when I saw little Hattie all turkeyed out. I’m not so sure I’d go as far as dressing Mason up as a piece of meat but I give Spelling props for the effort. The costume looks like it took a lot of time to make, and it sounds like her other kids had a blast helping out.
