Their mother is a mommy blogging novelist marketer, their daddy is a ukulele playing lawyer, so is it really all that surprising that C and Little L couldn’t decide on just one costume for this Halloween?
Beautiful Princess Witch.
“Because witches are kind of like princesses, right mommy?”
Complete with cowgirl hat, cowgirl boots, and hand-me-down Gymboree jeans.
We did some afternoon trick-or-treating in town.
And we faced the hordes of other candy hungry kids.
Little L was delighted with the whole thing.
Her hat, curls, boots, and blue eyes delighted everyone else.
We also did some evening trick-or-treating.
The Princess Witch was very excited about the whole thing.
Patient, but excited.
Note the red cowgirl boots?
And the barely contained excitement?
We took our friend M.J. trick-or-treating for her very first time.
Though that banana turned out to be her favorite treat of all.
Our favorite trick was putting her in a tree.
It was a low key, easy Halloween with no drama and very few tears. C clutched a flashlight tightly and only freaked out at the sight of one costumed boy. All in all it was a very successful evening, which gives me hope that the horrible no good terrible Halloweens really are a thing of the past!
