I don't know if it was just me, but halloween seemed to last a loooong time this year.
My two youngest ended school on a Thursday, so school festivities were prepared for over several days throughout the week.
My Middlest and her best friend decided to go as a good/evil fairy duo.
Wigs were bought earlier in the month so they could go as twins, but scrapped at the final hour.
Grandma came to the rescue with
old vintage dance recital costumes.
My youngest was the most excited about being a gypsy.
Or was it fortune teller?
She never really did decide.
"Mom, they're both the same thing...!?"
I stand corrected, she was a Gypsy Fortune Teller.
(Almost normal everyday wear)
My eldest was unsure as to the participation at high school when it came to costumes, so she managed an almost costume that bordered between...
(Funky Rad Hippie Outfit)
"I could actually wear this, but it could also be a costume" hippie outfit.
This was at 8 am Thursday morning.
Ready for school?
There, that's more like it.
Thankfully by Sunday the weather had warmed up considerably.
When Sunday rolled around, costumes needed to be created once again for trick or treating.
Middlest decided a fairy costume was not warm enough so an hour before it was time to go, she pulled together a burglar outfit.
And eldest who was not going to miss out on the fun, took ten minutes to make her sign and don some of The Agronomist's clothes to create a construction worker. The fire fighter hat was a construction helmet fill-in that worked quite nicely.
The youngest was the only one who didn't have any last minute crisis, and knew exactly who she was.
A Gypsy Fortune Teller.
We had a great time!
The girls pooled all of their candy and sorted the good from the bad.
The family coffer is dipped into for lunches and maybe one small treat after supper. And maybe a before bed snack for mom and dad.
This works really well for us.
No fighting over who had more.
No hoarders popping candy into their mouths into Easter, while their sisters whine they don't have any.
What do you do with your Halloween candy?
Stay tuned.... this year a few suspicious things happened during Halloween.
I tried to ignore it, but I couldn't.
It has to do with the cookies.
It will shock you.
It will make you question every question you've ever asked yourself.
I'll show you.
It will be like nothing you've ever seen before.
Just a little weirdness happening over here at Bungalow'56.
This photo below pretty much gives you the foreshadowing you will need...
Because you know me.
I've never been one to be overly dramatic.
Here's a little hint:
