For some reason, our city declared last night to be trick-or-treat night so we headed out to family members’ houses in full dress. As usual, the kids had a good time. We always dump the candy they “earn” into a community pot. That is partly payment for my transport costs! They were paid well for dressing up – family is so good about that! Abigail was authentic right down to her pink leather cowgirl boots. I didn’t have a thermal detonator for Isaac so I shoved a cayenne pepper in his pocket and told him to make the best of it. Anyhow, today in school, they dress again and have a Halloween parade. No doubt, they will be fully sugared after school today too.
In one of their bags, they each got little video games. They were drawn to that above all else last night. It was pretty funny seeing a cowgirl and a storm-trooper playing video games.
Today is report card day so assuming things look good, we’re going to Hibachi, a Japanese restaurant where the chef cooks at the table. It’s a tradition and about the only time we go out to eat any more. Of course, it is worth the wait!
