eat the pumpkin!
Traditionally, I've made my kids eat a "real meal" prior to going out to make the rounds. This year - vegetable pot pie with cheese biscuit crust - in the shape of pumpkins. Very yummy!
As a former theatre costume shop manager, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. This year, I was fighting off a cold all weekend until Youngest Child told me that he wouldn't be able to go trick or treating because I hadn't finished his costume. Well, that made me break out the liquid cold medicine and get stitching.
This looks like a particularly busty knight but it just comes from trying to fit a "Youngest Child" sized costume on a "me" sized dress form.
Sir Knight right before he hit the road
with the rest of the neighborhood gang.
Zombies, ninjas and angels - oh, my!
It was a beautiful evening for trick or treating so they had a long night of it.
But, what about the knitting, you say. Knitting? Well . . . maybe tomorrow.
