Dressing Up for Halloween
a) Not totally sure that dressing up for Halloween was that much different than how they dress to play normally - note first picture up top.
b) Jo found a smiley face stamp from grandma Helen and I stopped her before she got her whole face.
c) Sam was VERY serious about the whole trick or treat business. At first he was not about to leave the candy IN the basket, but tried to hold everything in his little fists. He got it down, though - as long as he always had a lollipop in each hand. He said "tick or tee" and "cuckoo" (his version of thank you) with much concentration.
d) Jo chatted the whole time. She was a ballerina (look at those long curls!) and Sam was - well, reluctant to wear anything but his sister's bathrobe. I dubbed him 'Sleepy.'
e) The night before, we went to the dog Halloween parade on the downtown mall - as you can see, Billy was a ballerina. It was ridiculous, fabulous, and, for Jo, thrilling.
It was the first time I've been trick or treating since I was a kid! It was so fun to go with our neighbors as a group.
Now, what to do with all this candy...
