You might find something(someone) missing in these photos. I’m calling this phase of our lives “The Tween Times.”
But it’s hard to not smile at the adorable and cuddly panda bear and the fantastic yet fashionable fox. What does the fox say? It turns out our whole neighborhood is over 78 years old or doesn’t have internet access as not one person understood why Esther was asking that question after she said “Trick or Treat.” Also, they were stumped by what a fox really says.
I’m glad my kids choose costumes that are warm so we can layer and stay cozy when it’s only 42 degrees on Halloween night. It’s better than having to put your snowsuit over your costume like I used to have to do.
But still – I didn’t get a picture of Eloise this year. It’s weird and good and strange and okay when your child reaches the age when they would rather go with a friend…and thus leave an empty space in my photo lens. Eloise was Cat Girl and I’m sure she was fabulous. And her smile, stories and bag of a candy when she returned later than usual – at 9:30- told me that she had an amazing time. And I know she has many more years to celebrate Halloween with us. And maybe I just need to catch her in a picture at 3:30 before she goes with her friends. If she lets me. I’ll have to bribe her with an iPhone or something.
If you loved our costumes but you are are still partying this weekend and need some costume ideas – well The Wisest Kid has you covered.
He’s also knows what kids love to eat – so that is never a mystery to us anymore.
