Halloween?

Costume orders: one ladybug (for Evie) and one witch (Emma). Alastair's going to wear a Ben 10 costume he got at the Royal Show.

I know, we don't do Halloween. The kids watch so much American TV they know all about it, though! Evie's daycare is doing dress-ups on Friday, then they're all going to a Halloween activity day at Toys R Us on Saturday, and today when we were at our local yummy yummy bakery/patisserie, they had a sign up saying kids who come in wearing a costume on Sunday get a free treat bag. So who am I to say no?

The ladybug should be easy enough - Evie has plain black pants and T-shirt (might cut the sleeves off that or she'll be too warm), just need to find some scraps of red and black fabric and magic up some wings. I found an old black satin formal skirt I'd made, which will never fit my waist again, and will cut that up for a skirt for Emma and she can wear a funky black top that also used to be mine. I'll make a hat out of some black construction paper if I can find some at the newsagency.

I think there's more wrong with people being staunchly against Halloween just because it's an "American" thing. :(

What's wrong with getting dressed up and having a bit of fun, I say! =)

It's not actually "American" either...it's Scottish!

I think H would like to do something halloween-y, but there's nowt much going on around my neck of the woods, so he's going to have to miss out again, I think.
