As predicted Halloween day I did indeed spend telling Heidi over and over again that it was not quite time to go trick or treating.We did start at 5pm though since the poor dear was foaming at the mouth.I didn't think we were THAT early but was a little amazed at how many people commented that we were early.Eh,with 2 small children I didn't really want to be out late and in the dark with crowds are far more aggressive kids also hunting for candy.
I was a little disappointed with the lack of Halloween spirit my hometown had this year.I saw lots of teens out in no costume expecting candy and tons of houses that didn't answer the door at all when they say us (put a no candy sign on your door then!).Fortunately by this time next year we will be back somewhere in small town America not having to deal with that.
Heidi was a cupcake fairy...oh how I wish there was such a thing!
and Wayland was a skeleton,he wouldn't wear a mask or allow me to put makeup on him though.
There were a few houses that went all out with the decorating which I appreciate.None of it fazed the kids though.
Oddly the one thing that DID make Heidi scream was a non-Halloween item,a motion detector frog that croaks when you walk by.
I knew I wanted to dress up but had to wing it.I wore all black and decided to do heavy make up but it eventually ended up being this.Not bad for using mascara and lip liner and having a baby wrapped around my leg whining and a 3 year old asking if it was time to go yet.
I bought this necklace off Etsy awhile ago and wore it with my outfit.Since I was holding Heidi's hand when it came untied I had to hold it in my hand instead of put it back on.I don't know if I've ever mentioned on here what a klutz I am but for the record I am.The only casualty of the night was my eye.As we walked by a low tree a branch caught the top of my hat and begun to pull.I used the only free hand I had which happened to be the hand holding the necklace and went to grab it.The motion of my hand was just enough momentum for the pendant to go swinging and WACK!Right into my eye...which smarted horribly for the next block.Yeah,something like that would only happen to me.
Had the kids back by 6:30pm which was enough time to check out the many bits of goodies they scored and get settled done with a movie before their bedtime.I hope you all had a safe and fun filled Halloween!
