It was a cold, rainy, icky night for Trick or Treating… but the kids in our town didn’t seem to mind! They were out in droves, like usual, in the neighborhood across the street where we always go for Halloween night festivities.
I wasn’t sure whether Damon would even want to dress up this year. He’s almost 11 and seems to be outgrowing lots of “kid” stuff at this point. But he did want a costume. I’m not sure WHAT his costume is supposed to be… something dark and scary! Avery wanted to be a vampire, and her favorite parts of her costume were her purple fingernails and red hair.
I, for one, am thankful that Halloween is over for another year. It’s not my favorite holiday… in fact, it’s probably one of my least favorite holidays. I just don’t get excited about dressing up and spending a fortune on crappy costumes that my kids will only wear for 2 hours!
I’m ready to move on to some “real” holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Those I can get excited about!!
