I am late on Halloween pictures but I have a good excuse. Our Halloween trick or treating was cancelled and rescheduled on November 3rd. I know, that’s crazy isn’t it? I thought so, let me tell you. A little rain in the forecast and all panic breaks loose in the mayor’s office and here we are, trick or treating in November, which frankly, just didn’t seem right. In my 44 years I’ve trick or treated in beautiful weather, but also rain, snow, and sleet. I think kids can take a little disappointment, whether that’s a shortened night, or a wet costume-there is always next year! I’ll leave it at that, but everyone around this house already heard it from, and might just be saying, “mom, get over it!”, so I will already. Geez, I just hope we don’t postpone Christmas because the snow isn’t falling!
My two girls:
Abbey was Rosie the Riveter…which was not only the cutest costume ever, but so easy and cheap to put together.
My little bunny…I really squeezed her into this one.
Matt went to a friend’s house to go trick or treating with a large group of classmates, so I don’t have a picture of him dressed up, darnit.
Andrew was a zombie, and Patrick was a Power Ranger at the last minute. First he was going to be a Storm Trooper, and then Luke Skywalker, but I saw this Power Ranger costume for next to nothing at the store and he was overjoyed. (I don’t think he even knows what a Power Ranger is, but it trumped Star Wars in his mind.)
The next morning it looked like a bomb went off in my house. But I ate a Hershey bar for energy, and tackled it like there was no tomorrow. I love a post-holiday clean out almost as much as I love a pre-holiday clean out and this is the perfect time for both.
