Our Hallowe’en festivities began on Saturday when we went to a friend’s family party. I had been very excited to dress up for Hallowe’en this year because I thought of the best costume idea ever:
We had a very nice time at the party. It was great seeing all of the other kids and babies in their costumes.
For a few weeks I had been thinking about alternatives to handing out candy, because I feel like kids already have too much sugar these days… but there weren’t a ton of other options, especially here in Watson Lake. I thought about baking something, but then parents might be wary about what’s in it. Also I didn’t have time to bake a bunch of stuff. So I caved and bought a box of little Hallowe’en sized chocolate bars. I made sure to buy Reese’s because they are my FAVOURITE and I figured it wouldn’t be the end of the world if we had some left over. So then Hallowe’en night rolled around and I put the candy in a bowl by the door. Guess how many kids we had? NONE! Bah. Next time I’m not going to open the box before we get the first visitors!
Here’s a few more pictures for your enjoyment:
