Before this look came into our house , the kids enjoyed their dress-up for Halloween.
L3 was thrilled beyond belief when we found his Star Wars garb whilst thrifting. And L4–for those of you who don’t recognize, she is Bubbles from the Powerpuff Girls (we don’t have cable, btw, but L4 saw an episode from the library once).
L3’s costume required nothing of me this year, but I did sew the dress for little miss. It is now properly soiled after a fun time with trick-or-treating. L1 pulled her around in the wagon (also found while thrifting) most of the night because she was on her way to the land of sickness, but she did manage to run through a lovely muddy patch at one point during the night.
We usually have an ancestor feast before trick-or-treating, setting a plate for our ancestors, talking about and remembering them, as part of our celebration of this harvest holiday. Unfortunately with L1 just recovering and me on my way to being sick, it didn’t happen this year. At least the jack-o-lanterns were carved and lit-up.
Thank you, all, for your well-wishes as we all make our way back to wellness. L3 is the last of us still with fever, though truth-be-told, you wouldn’t know it if you didn’t get a thermometer reading. Not much holds him back. 🙂
