I wanted the girls to be a 50’s Brownie and Girl Scout, but they totally went for stylish Halloween chic or whatever you want to call it. I was ok with it as I totally lost steam for Halloween this year. Jason and I had our costumes before summer hit, which was key to our success this year. I ended up glue-gunning together all our hats, Jason’s HIRES patch and my tray items. I realized once I glued down my Hires Rootbeer bottle and plastic basket, I really should have crocheted a hamburger and french fries, but I didn’t have time.
I also wanted a wig, but I never found just the right one, so I was like a 50’s/60’s combination of a made-up Soda hop. My roller skates were super fun, except for when I got a bunch of spider web stuck in one wheel. My soda-delivery-man took care of that and fixed me all up.
The weather on Saturday was bananas. We spent lots of money on cabs as our trains were on a wonky weekend schedule and the snow/rain was cold and very wet. We pressed forward with a happy attitude though, and got through two parties in two completely different parts of town.
I am pretty excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, so I am actually relieved Halloween is over!
