Yesterday was fun. Got a lot of funny looks at work, but I am okay with that. Been dressing up for years & I am not stopping now. Shared growing up memories this morning with a couple of people. Favorite costumes (definitely Princess Leia), treats (mom's popcorn balls with orange & black spice drops in them), and all the excitement & preparation that goes into one night of gathering candy.
The boy has been very excited about this night and his costume. He was very polite at each car, picked one piece of candy and said thank you. Had a good time riding this year's addition to trunk or treat, a spooky hay ride. All was fine until I took away his bucket o treats. He wanted it back so much that he threw himself on the ground & screamed/cried. Incidentally, this is not the first of such meltdowns. Just the latest in a string. Anyway, here a couple of photos from our evening. Hopefully next year won't be fraught with lack of naps, over stimulation, excess sugar & meltdowns. No need to laugh. I like that fantasy.
