I only had one trick-or-treater to take out on Halloween this year. We made her a queen. We found a velvety robe at a thrift store and I sewed on fur and the gold pleated front. Then we glued on jewels and added a crown and there you have it! Our little royal highness. I went as a gypsy.

It was so warm that we didn’t need to bundle up at all! What a change from the usual freezing we have to trick or treat in. We went with cousins until Melissa was so tired that she decided to take a break and let them go on without her around a cul-de-sac while she rested. She didn’t miss much though. She had so much candy that she happily shared with her big brother who went to a magic show with his Dad.

Speaking of which, Anthony was sort of a Dracula for many Halloween magic shows this season. Jeremy was his helper for a lot of those shows, and on Halloween night he dressed up as Jason from Friday the 13th. Jessica went to a party with friends, unfortunately I didn't get a picture of her before she left.

So fun!!! You did a great job with Melissa's costume!! I'm a little bit jealous of that talent ;) Anthony looks great glad to hear he's doing so great with all his shows - we are so excited for him that he's doing something he LOVES!!
