Trick or treat!
Now I have to say something to my Australian readers. First up I am not some crazy American that thinks Halloween needs to be celebrated here. We just happened to be invited along to this little celebration, and I knew how much my kids would enjoy it. But I do have an issue with the Australian interpretation of Halloween that it must be scary costumes! It is NOT about scary costumes. It is just about dressing up. I personally don't think small children should be dressing up like zombies, the grim reaper, etc. The reason Moo was a witch was because her best friend wanted to dress up as something scary. Moo wanted to be the same as her friend. The costume contest was for the scariest costume which is why B wanted to dresses as something scary.
The black skirt wearing Mollie is wearing is from an old t-shirt of mine that I chopped up and made into a skirt this afternoon because she had no black clothing. That is partially because she can't wear black to school and partially because she doesn't like to wear black. I would have made her a top and done more, but the costume decision was made in the afternoon and we had to be there by 4pm.
Wow, I can't believe I managed to post 31 days in a row for Blogtoberfest. Thank you to Cathy of tinniegirl for hosting. Perhaps you've learned a bit more about me. Maybe I've scared you. I will warn you that I will probably go quiet for a few days. I have some Redondo skirts, Olivia dresses, Antonia tops and Paula pants that are cut and waiting for me to sew.
