Halloween Day

Tired of posts about Halloween yet? Too bad. I have lots.

Monday was a regular day and Norah had school. After all of the festivities of the weekend it seemed pretty anti-climatic to do anything on the actual day of Halloween, but it wasn't like we could just ignore it. So, Lou wore some skeleton pajamas.

And Norah put back on her Princess Frostine outfit.

Check out the detail on this dress. We bought a cheapie dress from Target, snowflakes from the craft store, and Bubby worked some magic (I don't think I even own a needle and thread).

She was pooped, but the promise of candy was enough to get her to rally.

This is the best I could get of the two of them together. Pitiful.

I love our scary lady in the tree. Just love her.

BVZ was still at work of course, so Bubby helped out.

There were lots of kids running around the neighborhood and sadly, it made her miss her friends in California. A lot. We had a moment when she looked down with tears in her eyes and I asked her what was wrong. She said, "I am just thinking about Ruby right now." We went trick or treating with all of her besties last year and surprisingly she remembered exactly where they went and what they were all wearing (mind like a steel trap). In retrospect I should have taken her to her cousins' house and had her go with them, because truthfully it is kind of depressing to trick or treat by yourself.

She ended up being a great sport about it though and we had a good time. She got a few select pieces of candy when we got home and later on BVZ and I had a few select more (okay, maybe more than a few). Can't wait until next year when this one can get in on the action too.
