Isn’t this CUTE? It doesn’t seem to bother the sweet child at all, and I LOVE it!
We used to live in real ‘neighborhoods’ in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, and then Greenwood, Arkansas, so we’ve had the joy of giving out candy at Halloween. I just loved seeing all the costumes and acting as if I didn’t recognize the neighborhood kids, or were scared to death, etc.
I also loved helping our son figure out what he would be for Halloween, helping him with his costume, etc. when he was little. It didn’t take long, though, for him to decide he could handle his own costume, makeup, etc. He went for the ghoolish or grotesque, but he really got into it and had blast. It was more about being with his friends than the costume very soon, anyway.
We’ve lived up on top of our ridge line for about 27 years now. We were relieved to get away from the trick or treaters, after spending about $200 in one night, trying to have enough candy to pass out to all who came. That was the year my husband dressed up as a hunch back with a super scary mask. The word soon spread and the same kids may have come multiple times…
This morning I decided to get into the Halloween spirit for Lunch Bunch. My husband has a great sense of humor and doesn’t get embarrassed easily, so he was game for his wife to look really ridiculous. :0)
Everyone had the same reaction – a double take and then a hearty laugh. The people at the bank pretended not to know who I was (but cashed my check anyway), and the lady at the post office asked if she could take a picture of me to show her kids.
It was a fun way to spread some joy this morning.
