Yesterday morning, both Nicka and Oliver were costume-less. Let me add that it was NOT because of me... I had taken them to a second hand clothing store (Value Village) and told them that I would help them create a costume. Alexander walked out with a cheeseburger costume and the two younger brothers fought hard to buy a sword and plastic hunting knife (and the latter 2 are definitely NOT costumes!!!). To my surprise, we were able to go through our "old" costume pile and put together something for both Nicka and Oliver and it was- wait for this- relatively argument free... whew!
Since I am not a big Hallowe'en fan, I was not sure if I wanted to dress up or not but, at the last minute and on a total whim, I decided to dress up as one of my favourite people... ANDREAS (see link for my inspirational moment). I don't think that he was too impressed but I had a fun time ;)
We had a great time trick or treating with the W family (and yes, mother W and I had a glass of wine and answered the door to the candy chasers while all the husbands/boys were out). Even if I am not such a fan, it was still fun... Hope the boys ended up with some of MY favourite chocolates as well ;)
Have a great rest of the day xox
