I know Halloween is old news but here in New England we got such a damaging snowstorm in many communities —- cover the ears of your small ones — Halloween was …CANCELLED!! Downed electrical lines all over the place just didn’t make for safe Trick or Treating.
So Halloween is being rescheduled well into November.
In our little hamlet we were lucky (if you call trick or treating in 2 feet of snow lucky) and actually got to run through town shivering and begging for candy on the 31st.
This year I made three fake fur animals hats – Skunk, Dog and Unicorn. I hate sewing fake fur but the hats were actually pretty fun to make and read pretty well in the cold darkness of the evening. Stinky skunk had great fun spraying everyone with his giant tail bobbing up and down as he ran from door to door.
Bat Dog was a little under the weather and lost his voice telling everyone “I’m not BAT Man, I’m BAT DOG, see I have a tail”. Bat Dog opted out of his dog hat and went for his favorite Bat Man mask at the last-minute.
Note to self – don’t get too attached!! But, man did he look cute in the dog hat!!
Oliver thought we should put all the candy in a pinata and have a party – I thought that was a good one to remember for next year. Emmett had the idea that we should eat it all in one night!!
