Being on an extreme budget this year actually was a good thing this year! We got the chance to ‘recycle’ 2 costumes from 2 years ago, Cooper wanted to be Princess Jasmine (thank you Jilly!) and by default that made Wyatt the monkey Abu. Jilly wanted to be a pink butterfly, but for the love of all that is good and holy I could not find pink wings anywhere! Purple-heck yeah, blue-sure enough boss, even a ton of yellow/orange…but no pink!
Thankfully, Granma saved Halloween (for Jilly anyway!) when she spotted a pink snow princess costume! *SCORE!* The teenager wanted to go, mostly to get free candy *smh* and decided to ditch the rest of us and go with friends. So the 5 of us set out to conquer the Circle…in the 46 degree weather! (Did I forget to mention that it snowed the day before! Not enough to play in, but just enough to make a mess!)
Wyatt was not amused in the least, so he and Jeff bailed early, while the girls and I finished up the rest of the Circle with our next door neighbor Katie.
Not sure if it was the weather, or what, but we did not have nearly as many kids trick-or-treating this year. Oh well, more for us!
Jilly was a bit disappointed that she did not get to dress up for school this year, but Cooper was over the moon! She loved the parade around the school…girl loves her school, and her teachers!
