|Buttercup was a LadyBug this year.|
Still, I admit to a great sense of relief that Buttercup has reached the ripe old age of 12 and really doesn't want to trick-or-treat anymore. The issue is made so much easier when you don't have your own child chomping at the bit to go door-to-door in search of the next sugar hit. Each year, she seems to be invited to at least one Halloween party, so she can pretend to be something/someone else for a few hours and my mother's guilt is assuaged...she still has a "fun" childhood. (Phew!)
|Pretty cute, isn't she?|
As for giving out candy, this is the third year we won't be doing it. Instead, this is the 3rd Annual Celebration of Dress-Up for Halloween. Yes, once again this year, we will be putting on our finery and heading out to a real restaurant and enjoying a meal together. In fact, this year our little tradition has grown and will include some friends of ours who decided it was a pretty good idea.
|What a difference a year makes!!!|
So, stay safe and have fun and enjoy whatever you all are doing. It's all good, you know? Oh, and if you do get some candy, I'd really like a Snickers Bar.
