Can you believe that it’s November 1st? Goodness, it’s hard to believe that we’re at the tail end of the year. This morning I actually got out my Christmas cards and labels. In the past I’ve done photo Christmas cards, but this year I’m just going to get photo reprints made. I’ll probably work on those shortly after Thanksgiving, though I’d love to get the photo taken this week if possible. But onto this weekend…
I hope you all had fun yesterday for Halloween! The boys have been counting down to Halloween since mid-month. It’s one of their favorite holidays. We spread it out over the weekend. Saturday afternoon we headed over to the Town Hall where three great local organizations, the library, the Clinton Business Alliance and the Rec Committee put on a very nice trick-or-treat. Here we are, LOL:
Sunday morning the boys had to dress for the Saints Party at religion class. This is something we never did as kids, so the first couple years I skipped it, but… I guess I can’t avoid it every year. This year the boys went as St. Michael and St. George. Both, conveniently, were knights 😉 Naturally, they had to pose for their photo:
In the afternoon it was time to get the candy! Our town is quite rural and on our street, the houses are spaced much too far apart for the kids to walk around. So, we go to the mall. It’s easy. It’s warm. It’s safe. And they get loaded up with candy. The Clone Trooper and Darth Vader were ready to rock!
Laura could not have cared less, really. But she looked cute all dressed up. I made the tutu and let me tell you — I now understand why people charge so much for them on Etsy. They are relatively easy to made, but cutting the tulle is a pain and the whole process gets tiresome after a while. But it worked out in the end
Originally I wanted to dress up as a witch, but the dress I wanted was gone by the time I got around to shopping for it. So Drew and I came up with the idea to go as Sara Pezzini from Witchblade! For a last-minute costume, it all came together pretty well. I’m sure nobody got it (well, except at the comic store), but that’s fine. It was for my own amusement anyway!
And I did a fun manicure, too. The half-moon is one of my favorites and I like how the black glitter and shiny silver looked together:
Everyone had fun and now we have a huge bowl full of candy. Not a bad way to wrap up October
