So we are back from our blogging hiatus and we’re flashing back to Halloween. That’s about where we left off...
Caroline had a great time picking out a pumpkin...the farm stand had all different kinds! Beth couldn’t resist buying a ‘fairytale’ pumpkin, along with the regular kind (think, the squatty pumpkin that the fairy godmother turns into Cinderella’s carriage).
Then, we were ready for the big night! Catherine and Michael (Dorothy and Boba Fett) came to our house for the evening. We ate a delicious dinner of chili soup, then headed out into the neighborhood. There were tons of kids running around...it was really perfect! We had a great time just hanging out and trick-or-treating. Then back to the house to watch the DTV Halloween special (sort of an 80’s Disney version of MTV...Disney cartoon clips played to great Halloween tunes...like, Thriller, Bad Moon Rising, etc.)
Caroline was mesmerized by the whole experience! I think she couldn’t believe that it was really happening...it was all magic to her! She still asks to play trick-or-treat around the house every now and then.
Check out Boba Fett’s jetpack, and Dorothy’s red sparkly spray-painted crocs! Ok, so maybe everyone didn’t recognize Michael’s costume...but 99% of the Dads in their 30s and 40s were like, ‘Hey, Boba Fett! Awesome!”.
