The bad news: I had to work Halloween night, so no Trick-or-Treating for me. Instead, I get to raid the candy pumpkins at night when they are asleep. Bahaha!
The good news: I was able to get the kids ready before leaving for work. For my daughter, this included curling her hair and a tiny touch of makeup in addition to unsuccessfully hunting down the stuffed dog we planned to use as Toto.
What? You didn’t know Toto was actually a chihuahua? Hey, I made it work with what I had. And I have decided that there must have been a bunch of Dorothy’s running around this Halloween and maybe their moms got to the picnic baskets before I did…because I went to four stores and never saw one single picnic basket. So her dog was toted around in an old basket I found in the garage. She didn’t care!
From what I understand, my son absolutely loathed his costume…specifically, the mask. I don’t know why he even wants costumes with masks, he always hates them. But it was what he wanted, and I never even saw the costume before his dad bought it. (The store was crazy busy, so I handled little Dorothy and he got the boy’s costume. Anyhoo, he ended up ditching the costume very early in the night. I just think he suddenly decided he was too old for trick or treating and didn’t want to tell us. At least I snapped a couple pictures of him while he was wearing it. Le sigh.
So how was your Halloween?
