Last night our church had a Trunk or Treat (candy handed out of car trunks) and chili cook off, so the kids got to wear their costumes early! Katie chose to be a kitty – kind of from a last minute trip to Walmart. But Hallie chose to be Betsy Ross – her class does a Famous American project, and she is doing her in-class presentation today. Her teacher is actually kind of a genius – this way all the fifth graders will be in costume for the annual costume parade!
Hallie’s dress is “vintage” – my mother made it for the Bicentennial celebration. My favorite part is the sleeves! Her bag is flag fabric pulled through an embroidery hoop; she also has a blue field with white stars to carry around.
We’re already on candy overload from last night, and today my office is hosting trick-or-treating – they’ll be coming in to get more candy! I’m excited to have them come see where I work and show them off to my coworkers!
