Thankfully, the Trunk or Treat earlier in the month justified a very laid-back Halloween for us. Early in the day, my mom took Dawna and Adele around the yard to make “witch’s brew.” They collected sticks and leaves, rocks and dirt, and put it all in a large plastic cauldron. Then, it was placed on the stove. They sang a song about stirring and stirring the brew, and then let it “simmer” while they read stories. When they came back to the kitchen, amazingly, amongst all the leaves and dirt appeared six mugs of steaming brew!—also known as hot chocolate.

In the evening, we did minimal trick or treating. It was a little wet out and we were all cold. We just went to the six houses around our court and called it good. Somehow, we still managed to get enough candy to fill up our bag. Dawna loved dressing up again, and this time she got to add a flashing wand to the ensemble. What a girlie girl she is… I love it!

This picture of Dawna is adorable. She looks like you in this one too.
