Halloween fun

Warning: this is a photo-heavy post!

This was the best Halloween yet. Ruby remembered all the fun from years passed and loved showing Ginger the ropes. Gigi was a master trick-or-treater and has tried to get more candy every time we go on a walk. Ruby decided our family’s costumes this year; Ruby – bee, Ginger – flower, me – beehive, and John – beekeeper. As she said, “it’s all about the bee!” Fitting. We thought idea was creative and my only requirement was that Ginger not just be a sidekick this year, her costume had to stand alone, so we did it.

Ruby also chose our jack-o-lantern face – a sad, sick pumpkin with a thermometer sticking out of it’s mouth.

Apparantly, he has a high temperature

Unrelated: I’ve been recommending the book, Playful Parenting, to all the parents I know lately. It is full of lots of great reminders about who we want to be as parents, and making the journey more fun for everyone.

  1. Thanks, Jen! It is fun. Ruby already chose our costumes for next year – astronaut (Ruby), rocket ship (Ginger), star (me), and moon (John). We’ll see if it sticks…
