NaBloPoMo Day 2. Halloween

We had a fun Halloween.  Started in the morning with a pancake breakfast (cranberry pancakes with cranberry jelly, mix provided by Diane).  Yum!  We bid farewell to Diane and the boys and began our post-goodtimes mood crash.  After lunch we went for a nap drive, and she fell asleep and stayed asleep on the sofa for two hours. 

Lucy woke up and decided definately that she wanted to be a witch for trick-or-treating. Great. I was counting on her sticking with the skunk costume (that she used for Zoo Boo, and that she used last year for halloween).  That left us about 20 minutes to put a costume together.  I had a hat, the hat I bought at the beginning of the season.  We were really lucky that Lucy had already decided on an all black outfit that day.  I threw a black dress over her leggings and sweater.I pulled some halloween theme mama size knee high socks on over her leggins.  Threw on a pink wig that she had in her dress up box, and a cape that she made in preschool and VOILA!  Punk rock witch!

Punk rock witch, is not overly into candy so she made it about 2 blocks before she gave up on walking.  Thankfully a stroller from a younger member of our trick-or-treating team helped ease the transition back to home base.
