Halloween Musings

I will post pics of Hannah and Elijah later. I have to get them from the camera to the computer. But I thought I'd tell you a little about our day for now. Trick-or-treating is done mostly at businesses, not apartments, in this area. That was fun. We went to a dinner at the home school co-op - no costumes there. Hannah had so much fun playing board games and visiting with her friends.

On the subway ride home we saw lots of folks dressed up. There were a few kids, but tons of grown ups dressed in all kinds of costumes. There was a couple dressed as a box of Wheaties and a carton of milk, a guy with a bandage on his ear who really did look like Van Gogh. Then there were several variations of one costume - hoochie. There was a clown hoochie, a Bat Girl hoochie, vampire hoochie, circus ringmaster hoochie, Little Bo Peep hoochie, Wonder Woman hoochie, bikini wearing angel hoochie, genie hoochie, etc. It seemed like it must have been quite a challenge to use such a small amount of fabric and still get the "Bat Girl" etc theme across. Very creative, if nothing else.
