Halloween was a success this year even with a few costume setbacks. I picked up Charlotte’s super girl outfit at a thrift store a couple weeks ago. It was probably too small for her, but she was able to squeeze into it and didn’t complain. We thought we had a Harry Potter robe coming our way, but at 6 pm the night before Halloween, we realized we were robeless and had to scramble to come up with something. It might have been obvious in the end that Levi was wearing a hacked up fitted sheet, but with the glasses, scar, crusty old broom, and Gryffindor emblem, it worked out pretty well.
Both kids had a blast at the party at Levi’s school. In the afternoon, they went trick or treating through the businesses in downtown Corvallis. I think they each ate maybe three or four pieces of candy, which wasn’t too bad (better, in fact, than the way I was stealing and snacking on their mini chocolate bars last night). This afternoon we’re headed straight to the dentist in town who buys candy for $2/pound every year on November 1, and then the candy will be permanently out of our house.
Hope you, too, had a happy, healthy holiday!
