There must be some wonderful story about three such characters, don't you think? We had some strong creative opinions about Halloween costumes this year, and in the end I made the kids exactly what they wanted. Zosia has transitioned into a real "scary" costume this year (She would be upset if I told her she's much too cute to actually be scary) and wanted to be a skeleton. Lily decided she wanted to be a purple monster, so I did my best. I've never actually seen a purple monster, but there's a first time for everything. Hugo on the other hand just got dressed in an old costume from the dress up box: the one that Zosia wore when she was one, that Lily wore when she was one, and that Hugo gets to wear now that he is one.
It may be true that I ended up heading over to a friend's house to iron on some white felt late last night and stitching a monster hat by firelight, but what is motherhood without some procrastination? Blackout or not, Halloween only comes once a year.
Happy Halloween! And maybe I'll pop over here tomorrow to tell you about the candy fairy, because we are hoping she visits our neck of the woods tonight.
