I absolutely adore Halloween because it’s a holiday that both kids AND adults can enjoy at the same time. C’mon- when else can you throw on a bat headband and a mask and not get any second looks?
We compromised on costumes as I really wanted to go as the Breakfast at Tiffany’s twins (of course) and well, she wanted to go as Bat twins. I do believe we actually combined both of our visions in our final costumes (compromise, compromise).
Hmmmmm… maybe I could express my inner Holly Golightly through a pumpkin?
I actually learned my daughter was more excited about the money than the candy (my little entrepreneur). Now that the trade officially happened my daughter walked away $5 richer and her candy (and pounds upon pounds of candy from other kids) is being sent to the troops to enjoy.
We hope it brings many smiles. It is a very, very small token of appreciation for all they do for us.
