The summer seemed to last forever but Halloween week has been cool and rainy. Costumes were worn over long sleeve tees or with jackets over them, but it was beautiful and sweet nonetheless.
The girl was a fairy. When Jay found her dress for $6 at Goodwill the initial plan of her being a robot was tossed. The fairy dress was just too pretty to pass up. Her night was filled with glitter, makeup, sparkly gems on her face, and people complimenting her on how lovely she looked. There aren't many times an average gal gets to feel like a princess, but Lucy definitely had a princess night.
The boy pulls the same junk every year. He says he's too old to dress up, too old to go trick or treating. Then at the last minute he throws together some weird teenage boy costume. He and his quirky friends got it in their head to dress up and trek to the rich neighborhood. Monty was a walking billboard for marijuana legalization (something we've discussed in our house a lot lately), Friend #1 was a meth addict, and Friend #2 (a Middle Eastern guy) dressed as a "terrorist." Needless to say, their costume choices didn't score them the full size candy bars they hoped for.
They would have had better luck staying closer to home, Lucy brought home quite a haul.
