Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!! It was a typical Wisconsin Halloween yesterday with temperatures between 35-39 degrees. It was in the 70's last year so Bennet was a bit miffed at the normal temps. "Mom- it can't snow, it's Halloween" Oh sweety- it can and usually will.

Scout was supposed to dress up like Granny. We had the wig, hat, and glasses all set. When she woke up from her nap she wanted nothing to do with it. All she wanted was her kitty boot and pumpkin sweater. We modified her costume and I think she's the cutest Pumpkin Kitty Boots on the block. :)

She was a bit confused about the whole Trick-or-Treating thing. She just kept following Bennet from door to door and repeating, "Candy, pumpkin, candy, pumpkin" Oh, and dogs. Any house with a dog became an instant hit.

Bennet went as Little Red Riding Hood. I made the cape/hood and apron. Add a little checked dish cloth to a wicker basket and she was ready to go. Like any typical 3 year old she talked about Halloween and Trick-or-Treating for days leading up to the big event. It did not disappoint. I mean what's better than going up to a strangers house and getting free candy?

My favorite Bennetisms of the night:

"Mom, what is this?"

Me- "It's a pixy stick"

"Oh- I love these"

____________

"Mom- when we get to Grandma's I'm going to eat some of this delicious candy."

____________

"Mom- it's raining salt. That's crazy!"

Awww, they are adorable! Great job on the little red costume. I would have loved to see the granny costume but the pumpkin kitty boots is far more original! :D

Looks like fun! I was telling Catherine about how, when I was a kid, I had to wear snow boots & my jacket under my costume. She thinks I was kidding. :)
