Halloween was a do-over

Wilton, Connecticut celebrated Halloween November 5th.  Last Monday, on  the real Halloween, we were under a foot of snow, trees and electric wires were down in the roads and most residences were still without power.   Spooky maybe, but not safe for trick or treaters.   So the town declared  November 5th Halloween 2011.    It was a little odd and random, doing it a week later, but it would have been too sad for my kids who have dreamed  for 8 years of going trick or treating in the U.S. if it had been cancelled altogether.

We got an extra week out of our Halloween decorations although one the pumpkins didnt make it as it got soft and some weird worms took residence.  The belated celebration also took a toll on whatever little enthusiasm Owen and Cal may have had for dressing up.  Owen was an argentine soccer fanatic, meaning he wore the Argie National shirt.  Cal was a “14 year old boy”.  Needless to say, no photos were taken of their efforts.

Georgie however is at her peak of Halloween dressing up.  She pondered long and hard before settling on her Native American costume.  She was not Pocahontas.  She was Sacajawea, Lewis and Clark’s indian guide. Sacajawea is also the name she gives at Starbucks when ordering a drink.
