better late than never: Hallowe'en recap

I never told you about our Hallowe'en evening.

Just for the record, SB and I loooooove Hallowe'en and usually have a nice cozy horror fest staying-in date night but this year we had to rain cheque it. Damn. It just doesn't have the same thrill in November.

Anyhow. Pre horror fest, we were supposed to go out begging for candy with friends but this no-nap situation has really made late day activities darn near impossible.

Correction: completely impossible.

She wore part of her costume for 2.9 seconds, where I had only enough time to snap all the these photos:
All done with the distraction of a plastic yet gleamingly realistic sword.

I never said we were going to win any parenting awards (well that is, ones for parenting positive attributes).

Without going in to whine and detail (which would require me to have whine wine) - Hallowe'en evening was a bust - a tiring, but normal night in.

She was asleep right after dinner. I soon followed.

It's rough being two.

But more importantly, how many times did you get whacked in the head with that sword?

Awww...cute!

When the kids are that young, Halloween just isn't all the hype. But once they get just a bit older...wow! It's fun! She'll get there!

Arrrrrr... She's so tough that she eats swords! I want to squeeze her but I'm afraid she'll make me walk the plank.

Hope that you still get your gore fest.

Pinch-cheek cute.

Naps or no naps, that's a seriously cute kid you've got there.

I know. Would be cuter with a nap under her belt.

Mimi said...

Yargh. She's the no-nap pirate! yeah, we turned all the lights off at my place and pretended not to be home. Grinchy, but what can you do?

We have the cutest little scurvy dogs out there!

And it IS hard being Two. And it is hard being the Mommy of Two, as well.

Tres Bershon, Bumper.

I love the skulls. I'm hoping that the upcoming baby boy will allow me to dress him in skulls.
