The last family post ended just before Halloween. Michael was out in California for the last two weeks of October, so it was mostly the kids and I doing all our regular stuff, and waiting for Michael to get back home on Halloween morning. This is how they were dressed at 9am waiting for him:
We had a good day when he got home-we all enjoyed our presents! The kids showed him the scarecrow they made:
In the evening Michael took the kids to two of the houses on the next street to go trick-or-treating. H & K decided (from what they learned on a Barney Halloween video) that they could only go to houses of people they know-and as only 2 families were home, they only went to the two houses. What I hadn’t anticipated was Hazel being ever so choosey over the treats-and explaining to the people that they can’t have the gummy or hard sweets, artificial colours or sweeteners. I just thought they would take what was on offer for the fun of it-but Michael said she looked through the bowls to find a ‘suitable’ treat!! Oh my! They found something at the one house-nothing at the other house-so she and Kieran wouldn’t take any! I don’t think the choosey kids will be welcomed back next year!
Halloween is becoming a bit more fun around here! I even managed to find Indian corn for the front door this year! Our town even hosted a party in the Market Square. I think more people turned up than they thought, as they definitely didn’t have enough events/spaces set up. I’m not complaining-I think it was great so many people came-so hopefully it’ll be a big event every year. Hazel had her face painted, we watched a magician and joined in a few games. While we listened to a decent band playing we had a barbecue pork sandwich, and when it got too cold we headed home. We stopped off for some chips, and had those while watching the end of Strictly Come Danicing.
