Ok, back to Halloween
I struggle with Halloween. I do not like the scary aspect, the celebration of evil things. But I think the dressing up bit is fun, and of course the candy. Brandy at the blog Autumnfawn Lane wrote some wonderful insights about Halloween that I found especially helpful this year.
This was the first year that Zippy was not allowed to go trick or treating, instead she opted to take over candy distribution, and still dressed up a little bit. The Little Dude went as a laundry basket. Cheapest, easiest, interesting costume we've done in many a year. As tradition they went trick or treating with the cousins, that would be Darth Vader and the squid.
