(cat & mouse)
Funny thing is, they refused to beg. They would NOT say "trick or treat." Though they did say "thank you" occasionally, so that's something. The merchants in town all pass out candy on Halloween, and the main road is closed. It's always fun to run around and wave at the people you know and smile at the cute, creative costumes. Ash noticed and pointed out many "gutchens." We also have way too much candy now. Bleh. I'm just gonna throw it all into the poop prize jar.
I'm rather glad to see Halloween go. We certainly made the most of it and my kids got plenty of wear out of their costumes (which is what I wanted). Last Thursday they wore them for music class. On Saturday we went to the zoo where the kids were all encouraged to dress up and they even had a trick or treating area where they passed out awesome snacks instead of candy. That same night we went to a costume party with friends. And then tonight we did the trick-or-treating thing and then went to a church party afterwards. Sheesh and whew!
Now it's time to pull out the Pilgrim/Native American/Turkey decorations! Thanksgiving is coming!
(even the babe in my tum got to dress up!)
P.S. The girls' hats and tails are from etsy. Their boots from Payless. Britt's dress is H&M. Ash's shirt, sweater, and skirt are all from The Children's Place. And they get to wear everything except the tails for the next 5 months! Woohoo!
