I usually LOVE Halloween. Seriously it is one of my favorite things. This year…I was kinda blah about it. I just wasn’t in the mood. I had a couple ideas for dressing up…but just didn’t feel like going through with the effort. It also didn’t help that I had a dentist appointment at 8:00 am.
But when my dad came home from physical therapy for his shoulder…he started trying to decide which costume he was going to wear (he has three he alternates in between…Caveman, Wizard, and this scary skeletal thing). Last year was caveman. This year was Wizard. As my dad likes to say…”I don’t like to scare people…I LOVE it.” My dad threw his scary skeletal mask at me and told me to be his ORK. Whatever. I put it on.
My mom stands in the kitchen and lets us know how scary we can be. If they are too young I don’t even go to the door. Well unfortunately there was a little Raggity Ann girl behind a bunch of bigger kids. She took one look at me and tried to flee her stroller (she was probably about three) and screamed and cried. I also made a little fireman a little spiderman flee from our porch (my mom chased em down and gave them candy because she felt bad for them).
Roxy’s little pumpkin shirt was a bit tight…but I stretched it out…and she kinda looked like a pumpkin sausage. She didn’t understand why she had to stay in the kitchen.
Roxy sez: Where is my candy?
