this year for halloween we had a witch, princess jasmine, and “v” or a poodle skirt girl, depending on the venue/celebration.
it was quite wonderful to have merrill home this year for all the halloween fun, last year just wasn’t halloween without him!
we had a little early halloween fun at the family “trunk or treat”. lynn and I both won prizes in the costume contest. she was “v” that night, and I was a flapper girl, fulfilling all of merrill’s halloween dreams.
we carved pumpkins at the last minute. don’t know how I forgot about those!!
life was a little hectic with the second hotel opening. we spent a lot of our days and nights there getting it ready to open. maybe that is how I forgot about the pumpkins.
halloween day I helped in the second grade, totally blew my budget on frosting for cookies, forget that I had to buy the cookies, napkins, and all the junk that is necessary for a child to frost a cookie. that is what I get for putting that off till the last minute!
that night, we made the rounds. the kids had fun, but didn’t stay out long. I wonder if the day will ever come that they feel the need to stay out and go as far and as fast as possible to collect obscene amounts of candy.
here’s a couple of cute and quick ideas for friends, neighbors, and teachers:

now here’s to willpower and not eating my kids candy!
(whatever, you know I bought extra that I do not plan to hand out.)
