"Tomorrow's tomorrow we can say tomorrow is Halloween"... so Andrew tells me.
The countdown has begun.
They've begun mapping their candy route with strategery. They've finally pinpointed who they will become on Halloween...though Corynn had such a hard time this year that she nearly gave up on the idea altogether. There will be quite a menagerie.
I kept giving what I thought were awesome ideas- Frida Kahlo! (I am still hoping I get a Frida Kahlo some Halloween.) A tree! A bubble gum machine! A Matroyshka doll! A knight! A peacock! A scuba diver! Every idea resulted in a grumble or sigh. (Every single one could have been awesome... I am certain)
Eventually everyone picked something- with a few gentle nudges from Mama here and there. ("No...you were an excavator LAST year, Judah. There is an old Halloween rule that says you can never be the same thing twice...")
So the costumes have been sketched, the route has been made, the supplies have been gathered up (I hope) and it's time to start thinking about the making.
