They actually didn’t eat much candy last night – give them a lollipop and they’re good for awhile, but the kids are tireless about trick or treating. We let them lead the way, weaving in and out of blocks, but the adults were tired. And cold. Did I mention that it’s finally cold and feeling like
October November (OMG).
Mia kept asking me why we didn’t get dressed up and I didn’t have a good answer for her, so Mark and I thought about last minute costumes we could throw together the night before. We decided that he should put on a suit and go as Corporate Guy or The Man or the IRS or the Men in Black (fill in your own here), but we’d thought it would be funny since no one has ever seen Mark in a suit before except for the family. He even had to look up how to tie a tie on the internet, that’s how bad it is. I tried to pull something together with the bat wings I made Mia a few years ago, but it didn’t quite work the way I saw it in my head (also, I am not a child, and I made it to fit a child, duh) so I remain the lame one without a costume.
I’m glad another Halloween has passed us, but you do know what this means, don’t you? It’s officially the holiday season. It used to be that Christmas wasn’t pushed on us till after Thanksgiving, but all that has changed, of course. We’ll be seeing visions of sugar plum fairies soon enough.
