Boo! And, Challenge Accepted

Ready to see a cute picture of my kid in her Halloween costume? It’s obligatory, right?

Red-headed unicorn

This is honestly the best picture we got, despite Miss Red wearing her costume to two Halloween parties on Saturday and going Trick or Treating last night. What is she? A unicorn. She didn’t like wearing the hood, which was the unicorn part, so we got a lot of, “oh, are you an angel?”

This year was so much more fun to go Trick or Treating. She got it. She would get excited when someone answered the door, and said the whole line, and then, “thank you, Happy Halloween.” After an older neighbor gave her a quarter, she said, “Mama, this holiday is about money and candy.”



November also marks the beginning of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), which encourages people to write each day. Since I’m not working on a novel, I’ve decided to participate in its online sister, or National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), which encourages bloggers to post each day. So here goes it! Let’s see if you still want to read my words after a month of daily postings.

  1. Halloween was so adorable this year. My kid got it too, and that made it SO fun. (Plus, a toddler saying “fank ou” is an almost guarantee of another piece of candy).

    And yay! Another nablopomo’er!

      Thanks, Ginger! Dare I say that I might have caught the Halloween bug again? Kids will do that to you. And I’m glad I have another person to egg me along on the NaBloPoMo challenge. Game on.
