A Jedi and a Flapper

We definitely know who Luke Skywalker is. We'd watched movies 4, 5, 6 last spring and loooooooooove Star Wars! So our little guy was a Jedi for Halloween. Easy. He even got his first light saber. Joy.

B was a little tougher. I knew she'd make a cute flapper. Fringe? Beads? Sparkly shoes? Sold! I showed her some images of the 1920's and she was hooked. Though next year, she wants me to remember that she plans to be a hippy. She "admires their way of life". Okay then.

Our first Halloween in a new town. Grandparents were in town for lunch and we all went to the high school's production of Wizard of Oz in the afternoon. Then it was trick or treating after a dinner of potato soup. My favorite. Yummmmmmmmm.

Aside from chilly temps, it was a great night. The kids had fun and we had some family time.




Loot! (Early on...you bet there was more where that came from!)

A little to hand out too.

With each week that passes, we are more at home.
This morning B asked, "Is it November 1st?!" Yes it is. She said it was sad because now it will just get colder and colder. We'll have to talk later about the bonuses, the good with the not-so-good. Thanksgiving! Basketball season! Christmas! Snow days! New Year! Things to look forward to. All good things.

The kids looked adorable! Winter gets a bad rap, but like most things it is what you make of it. B's comment about hippies made me laugh.

Danglers had NO trick or treaters. Kinda sad isn't it?

If only we lived closer -- your Jedi knight could've come trick or treating with my Clone Troopers.

B admiring the hippy lifestyle is a hoot!

GAH. I have a new touch wireless mouse and some how clicked on "publish" before I was ready!

Where did you get B's dress? It's great! And aren't you clever to put the black layers underneath so she looks beautiful AND cozy?
