We had a pretty good Halloween.
By which I actually mean TOTALLY AWESOME.
I made the kids’ shirts and sewed the letters onto their hats. Sam carried the treat bag I sewed for him three years ago (OMG, who IS that tiny boy in the linked post?) and Grace carried the giant plastic pumpkin she fell in love with at Target a few weeks ago. Seriously, she would NOT put it down. So I figured what the heck, and bought it for her.
At the first two houses we visited, the (older) ladies handing out candy asked, “Are you two dressed as train conductors?” I tried to explain, but…yeah.
Both kids were REALLY into the trick or treating stuff. Sam has been kind of baffled by it every year until now. Grace was clearly confused but just went with it. She is easy like that.
We saw a group of older teenagers, really too old to be trick or treating, but for once I was not annoyed by it. They were in full costume and looked GREAT, and they were very nice to all the smaller kids. Though Catwoman did try to take Mario home with her.
After we got home, late, we had one trick or treater. Since that has been our yearly average, I was pretty impressed.
Though not as impressed as I am that both kids allowed me to draw on mustaches.
