Well, another Halloween has come and gone, and what a success it was. I admit, I have lost my patience with finding candy wrappers everywhere I look, but if that's all I have to deal with, I will do it with pleasure. My kids got to go trick-or-treating with their daddy which they loved! They haven't been able to do that since 2006! This was Emma's first year, and I can tell the bug has been planted with her. I am doing what my mom used to do and after picking a few things for myself, I have let them have free rein on their candy. They know that once it's gone, it's gone and if they get sick, too bad for them! Ü
This year, Audrey wanted to be Cruella DeVil. Being that we don't ever have any money, I had to make do with what I had. I let her use my black dress which we pinned to fit. She wore her own tights and shoes, and we agreed that Cruella could forgo her fur this time. I know, I know, she's not Cruella unless she is draped in fur, but we couldn't find any. So, the hair had to do the trick!
