Halloween!!!!! The weather was perfect and the girls had a grand time on Halloween. Katherine has been longing for a "girl pirate" costume for a year. So Granny made her one, of course!
We just decided that Rachel needed to be a kitty, since she's crazy about cats. She loves it! She very much understood that she was a kitty and meowed and wanted petted while in her costume.
Our church had a trunk-or-treat party, with people handing out candy from the backs of their decorated cars, face painting, s'mores and apple cider, an old-fashioned fishing pond, and a cupcake walk. It was a huge success, with so many community people attending that they ran out of candy! We had a lot of fun trick-or-treating and playing games. Although Rachel knew that she was going to wear a costume on Halloween, she didn't realize that other people would, too. She just stared in amazement at all the costumes and decorations.
