I hope you had a wonderful Halloween! Despite some sickies, (more on that later), we had a wonderful day! I just love that my parents come every year to celebrate with us. They haven’t missed a Halloween since Allison’s first!
I may not be able to sew costumes, but at least I can handle Halloween bags! I did the bat and the candy corn a few years back for Allison and Natalie. (I even hand made their bags!) I found some black bags for $1 at Michael’s and decided they were close enough to the original bags, so I just added the owl and spider. (Thanks for your help, mom!)
Funny thing… we were at Target, and Allison insisted I buy orange jello to complete our traditional Halloween dinner. I said, “But you don’t even like orange jello!” “It’s a tradition,” she responded! Ha! And, it turns out she does like it after all. Good thing, because last year I had to throw it all away!
When it comes to costumes, I am so thankful my girls are “scrappy.” Once again this year, they just dug through the dress-up pile to come up with a costume. I wish you could have heard them tapping through the streets! A sweet friend gave me this dragon -er- dinosaur for Malachi. Try as I might, I couldn’t get a decent picture of him in it!
For the first time ever, the big girls actually came home and took inventory of their stash… they even did some trading. Oh, how I remember those days! Good times! Anyone need any candy?
