And creepy names for the foods, like Mummy Fingers, Monster Eyeballs, and Frank's Green Goo. Dewdrop was excited to get her plate till I started to recite the names for her. We call her the world's hungriest baby, but she wasn't going near her food when she thought it was really monster stuff.
The club had piles of candy out for kids to help themselves, and I was pleased to see that our little fairies didn't try to load up on it. I filled my pockets with Smarties.... I didn't see the girls even go near the treats table. Maybe the spooky skeleton kept them away.
He didn't go with us, he had a DJ job that night, and went as Thoth and fabricated this mask for his costume.
Sugarwings wanted to wear the Halloween costume that her mommy bought for her, but I asked her to save it for her school party and trick or treating, so it would be special then.

Not that it was too pricey, TJ Max and Marshalls have elaborate, well made costumes for a decent price, her gorgeous, velvet dress was $32. It was a very good quality. So was Dewdrop's and hers came with a cloak too.
But even at only thirty bucks each, I felt like I needed to get two events out of the dresses!
A game instead of dressing up like a witch, and watching a magic show with a couple of pink princesses? What was everyone thinking? That never would have occurred to me.
