Do you want to know what 208 cans of applesauce looks like?
The orange stuff in the back had plums mixed in.
My mother in law and sister in law did most of the work. I pretty much just chopped apples and took a nap each afternoon. But, I came home with 60 cans of my own, so it wasn’t a bad gig.
We are about to leave to our Darcy family Halloween celebration, which will conclude day 3 of our Halloween extravaganza. On Friday we had a school carnival, last night we had the church Trunk or Treat, and tonight the kids are gathering with their cousins to eat chili and maybe watch a scary movie.
Here are the kids costumes:
Lizzy wanted to be Dumbledore. I can’t say that this was a successful costume since the beard itched so much she didn’t wear it most of the time, the spray in hair coloring that was supposed to turn her hair white only turned her hair sort of grayish for about 45 minutes, and the Snuggie that she was wearing backwards didn’t look so much like Dumbledore’s cloak as it looked like a backwards Snuggie. But, I am happy to say that this costume cost me all of $10, so who cares.
Then we have The Boy as Harry Potter, Jane as Cinderella, and Kitty as a random Hobbit. Her costume also cost about $10. Yay! And a few people even said, “That’s a cute little Hobbit you’ve got there.” so, it didn’t go over everyone’s heads. But, I won’t lie… most people had no clue what she was. And probably wondered why I didn’t cut my poor little boy’s curly mullet instead of making him dress up like some weird fantasy character.
