Halloween, Round One


My kids LOVE Halloween. They enjoy dressing up all year round--although Luke's budding self-consiousness has prevented him from dressing up as spiderman for trips to the grocery lately. They also love all things creepy, crawly, and scary. On Friday night we hit the local community center's Halloween celebration, Luke going as a ninja and Henry as Frankenstein's monster. (Yes, my children DO know the difference between Dr. Frankenstein and his monster. I'm putting those degrees in English to good use, darn it!) These costumes are a great improvement over their original hopes to each go as the grim reaper.

Halloween is one of the most anticipated times in a year by adults and most especially kids.

My kids LOVE Halloween, too. And there dad used to be a costume designer and HE loves it as well. Me, not so much.

Already, your children are smarter than me. I. No, me.

Hope they, and you, have fun trick-or-treating or passing out candy.

Yours in spirit ...

I am astonished at the size of Luke. Either that, or you have really short doors in Ohio.

Conversation between two Hyde Park 6 year olds in the back seat...
E: For Halloween, my friend Sam is going to be, to be, oh, what's his name? He's a bird catcher, it starts with a P....
D: Papageno?
E: YES! That's it, Papageno. Sam is going to borrow my Peter Pan outfit from last year, the one covered in leaves.
