All Hallow's Eve

We did the Halloween thing this year. Of course. But we did the "what's in the house" type of costume instead of the bought costume of earlier years.

The kid decided he wanted to be a Hobo this year and of course I have quite the resources for that! We found an old tweed jacket of mine from 15 years ago (still dusty from the closet; all the better). I sewed patches on the elbows from some old window treatments; and some old holey jeans, fingerless gloves, an old handkerchief, an old knitted hat, and some makeup work (dark eybrows and some dark eyeshadow for a 5 o'clock shadow). As you can see, he has his bindle. The kid ruled!

Way too much candy. It was either "Must give the Hobo more" or "Look at this great home-made costume, must give more candy". He totally scored! Now we have to eat all this candy (mostly chocolate).

As you can see, there are lots of empty candy wrappers, LOL.

Happy, All Hallow's Eve!
