I was a bit tired today since my class took a field trip to Plimoth Plantation today. But that didn't stop me from answering the door for the trick or treaters. My favorites are always the little ones. You know the ones who have no idea what is going on but mom and dad are ecstatic that it's their kid's first or second Halloween. This year it was a tie for my favorite kid costume. Our neighbor's little boy was a skunk and another little girl was a strawberry. Both were adorable.
I am leaning toward an animal for our baby's 1st Halloween next year. Steve wants to dress the baby up as Lance Armstrong complete with baby bike shorts, yellow t-shirt and helmet. I smiled and told Steve, "We'll see."
Since we had an old toilet under our deck (doesn't everybody?) Steve wanted to use it as a prop. He took a skeleton and attached it to the toilet and made the skeleton reading a paper. He even put a spotlight on it. The kids didn't know what to make of it and the parents thought it was hysterical.
Since it is November 1st I am ready for the toilet to disappear. I don't want to be known as the trashy family on the street.
