C’est Halloween (tomorrow)! This makes me relieved for three reasons:
- The mini chocolate bars, that I’ve done a terrible job at not eating this week, will exit the house
- The pumpkin flavoured/scented everything will hopefully be done! (marketing overkill much?)
- I can compost the dead potted mums and the rotten pumpkins sitting on my porch
I am happy to report I have made it though another year without a Superhero costume. Nothing against all of the Superhero kids… I just like making stuff and my skills do not include sewing. To avoid this, I spent a bit of time on Pinterest looking for ideas which I then I shared with David. To my surprise, he picked his favourite and committed. Phew. Unlike last year, this costume is rather simple. We started with a sketch:
As you can clearly see, he is a HOT AIR BALLOON PILOT.
and made carrying suspenders out of braided twine I recycled from last year’s pirate ship.
I actually got two helium balloons. My original plan was to use the little balloon for school and the big one for trick-or-treating but I am nervous the costume may be too awkward for the school hallway. Sadly, he may go to school dressed as a pilot. Dammit Janet!
RHPS forever. Happy halloween y’all!

* When Halloween is over, I am just going to put extra throws in it… as a stationary blanket holder, you don’t really need a bottom.
