Then came trick or treat time! Somehow, in all the mayhem of attempting to keep the girls' wigs on, we didn't get a lot of photos of that scene. Aunt Jo Jo constructed a Snow White dress for Kate and a Rapunzel one for Sarah. They looked stunning. We set off in a caravan to see the Scary Garden on Oakview & 2nd, which we'd toured a few weeks ago when they first set it up and we happened to be walking by. On the way, we stopped at 400 houses*. When we finally reached our destination, Kate bravely marched up through the terrifying graveyard that included real, live zombies, to the porch to receive her glowstick necklace and goody bag. Sarah was terrified. She did not recover for a full 5 houses. By the time we rounded the corner back to 3rd Ave Kate slumped back in the stroller and said "I'm. Done." I have never heard her say that except in reference to eating vegetables. It was a very full day.
*Reports of number of houses at which we stopped may be somewhat inaccurate.
**I switched to the new editor in Blogger. I have no clue what's going on here. Where the hell is spellcheck? Why won't my pictures move where I want them? I'm hungry. Why won't this 5-year-old get off my arm?
