Happy Hallowe’en

Good day, ghouls and goblins! It’s the most wonderful day of the year.

I’ve always loved dressing up and getting candy, and giving candy out (usually while dressed up) is almost as fun. Sadly, this year we’re not around to cater to the trick-or-treaters. I’m not too upset, I’ve put together a few packages for our favourite neighbourhood kids, and I’ll give it to them the next time I see them.

Miss Wren is one of those kids. A few days before Hallowe’en, she and her mom were doing a little dry run of her costume to make sure everything fit, and she just had to come over and show me.

In truth, I think she really wanted to show Dave – she turned him into a frozen frog with her wand the minute she saw him. Her spell is”Bibbity-bobbity-boo – I froze you!”, just incase you have occasion to turn someone into a frozen frog.

While Dave was thawing, and regrowing human features, Krista and I were chatting and we noticed that the sleeves on her Magical Majesty’s gown were pretty thin! Perhaps she was the real frozen one!

I ran upstairs to my closet to see if I had something that would complement her royal wardrobe.

Some of you may recognize that as my Eostre shawl. Isn’t it just the perfect thing? Krista refused to take it at first, especially after I told her it was alpaca and silk. But it’s been sitting in my closet doing nothing for years. Obviously it was made for this moment!

    What a beautiful costume! Your shawl was a great idea. It’s finally going to be cold here tonight. We are going to spend the day hooking up the heated cat huts.

    Wren is adorable and that shawl is a wonderful finishing touch for her costume! (How could you not be using it?) Happy Halloween!
