Tonight we observed that most sacred of childhood holidays. Halloween!
We had a bumblebee.
I was a butterfly.
David was a civil war soldier, but I don't have a picture of him. He wasn't dressed yet when Lily and I headed out to meet up with Lily's friends.
David and Rebecca went out with the big kids in our neighborhood but we all met later at a friend's house for pizza.
You can't tell from the picture but I am wearing a bright orange satin prom dress. I got it at the junk store thinking it would be wonderful for halloween. And it was wonderful, except for the boning which started to dig into my ribs about half way through trick or treating. I was also wearing heeled boots. My feet may hurt for days.
My costume got me thinking about movie stars who flit about in high heels and skin tight clothes all the time. Don't they get exhausted from walking in those things all the time? I was so happy to come home and put on an old lady nightgown. Maybe movie stars have secret muumuu's for when they get home.
What were we talking about?
Halloween is also a big deal for us because it is the day after David's birthday!
The girls and I got him some new shirts and special gloves that work with his iphone.
That's all I've got today people because I am so tired. I promise I'll make it up to you tomorrow.
