Halloween 2009

I was Scrooge this year for Halloween. We are living in temporary living. I don't have a sewing machine. We didn't want the kids eating lots of partially- hydrogenated, artificially colored and chemically enhanced candy. So, with a the bribe of a room in a hotel with a pool and a visit to Build A Bear we created our own type of Halloween.

The kids dressed up their new friends:

We set up "houses" filled them with organic treats and fair trade chocolate, shut the lights out and went trick-or-treating:

Their Aunt Cat sent stickers, pencils and all sorts of great Halloween craft items. The kids loved it and made trick or treat bags for their animals:

She also sent wax lips:

We jumped on the bed and then the kids ate as much as they wanted of their Halloween treats:

We spent the next day swimming in the pool and visiting with my good friend, Polly.

Brooke informed me that it was the best Halloween she had ever had. Taylor asked if we could do it again next year. Dee was very, very happy.

Scrooge does always turn out well in the end doesn't he?
