Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween! We sure did!
Cooper was a Red Sox player. We TRIED to get him to wear a hat…but no dice.
He always takes them off the second we put them on him.
I was all spidery. My neighbor made me a spider hat! Isn’t it cool?!
I painted a web on one side of my face with eyeliner and then put the spiders on the other side of my hair.
I spray- painted some cheapie black plastic spiders silver & glittered them.
Not a true costume…but better than nothing!
I wore stripey tights and made a pumpkin cake with brown butter frosting (recipe coming soon!)
The two aren’t really related, but they both happened.
Casey dressed up as a Hawaiian tourist! Guess who got to carry my heavy camera all night long? hee hee
We went over to my neighbors house for dinner. She made us toad in a hole with yummy gravy & roasted veg.
Cooper had a really good time trick or treating!
He got right to it!
At the first house, he tried to walk INTO the house after he took the candy! By the 5th house he was a pro.
He insisted on holding his bucket the whole night. Wouldn’t let anyone touch his candy!
Every time he was given candy he said “thankin!” (his way of saying thank you) Made me so proud!
After living in our house for 4 years, we finally got to go around and check out the neighborhood.
A few blocks away, we encountered an INSANELY festive street. Every house went really ALL out.
Kids were EVERYWHERE.
Made me so happy to go trick or treating! For decades we’ve just been the adults behind the door with the candy!
Can’t wait for all the years to come! Now it’s time to eat some cake and take off all this eyeliner!
