SO ANYWAY: Halloween
The B went as Cinderella and she looked BEAUTIFUL! if I do say so myself. Only she got really upset if we called her Cinderella and promptly reminded her silly parents that she was only DRESSED as Cinderella and was, in fact, STILL Nadia.
We took her Trick-Or-Treating one town over where she caused a HUGE scene because one of the little booths gave her a ticket for free french fries instead of candy. First of all, lemme explain that B DOES NOT EAT FRENCH FRIES. She is probably the only kid I know who doesn't like them. AT ALL. Secondly, she apparently was not impressed by the paper. AT ALL. She looked into the bucket and then promptly starting *shouting* "HEY! THAT LADY GAVE ME A PIECE OF PAPER!!!! SHE DIDN'T EVEN GIVE ME ANY CANDY!!! SHE LIED!!! THAT'S LAME!!!" It was embarrassing... and also hysterical. LOL
Lauper, or, as I like to call it: "The-anything-you-can-pull-together-at-the-last-minute-from-the-closet-costume." Which is pretty much what I end up going as EVERY year. My favorite costume that I've ever pulled together at the last minute is this one:
I'm thinking of going as Miss Piggy every year from now on actually. The hubby made a pretty handsome Kermit too. PS- I did the Pirate and Queen of Hearts costumes too... which is why mine was pulled together at the last minute. RAN OUT OF TIME AGAIN!!
So anyway, Halloween was pretty fun, though as always, there were little reminders of how it would be much more fun to celebrate it elsewhere. They don't really do door to door trick or treat around here. They round up all the kids in the center of town and let the businesses do "booths" where they hand out candy. It sounds like a neat idea except that you end up waiting in a HUGE line for HOURS, and the teenagers pretty much ruin it for the little kids EVERY YEAR. Plus, all of the local crazies come out too. This year over half the booths were handing out bible verses and pamphlets instead of candy. My personal favorite is the one that read, and I quote: "WHERE WILL YOU GO WHEN YOU DIE?" As if life isn't confusing enough for my four year old let's throw in THAT morbid question. SHEESH! LIVEN UP FOLKS! Since when is taking an opportunity to dress in a funny costume and get free candy from strangers the same as "devil worship?" Pfffftt. I just wish people like that would stay indoors on Halloween and leave the rest of us heathens to it! *LOL*
