On Saturday there was a Halloween event nearby so Merle got to try on and test out her costume. It was a success and you can see it above (here is my diy for the Cousin It bucket). She is all about the costumes while her sister is just more about that candy (always has been) and I guarantee by the time for bed on Halloween night she will already be thinking about what she wants to dress up for next year.
Also on Saturday night I decided that it was a most excellent idea to move the living room around. And by most excellent I obviously mean not the brightest idea. I wanted to make room for the Christmas tree and figured it was a good time to start. I ended up too tired and going bed before I finished so I had to deal with the mess on Sunday morning which totally sucked. I also ended up scratching the shit out of my knuckles when my hands got stuck moving a desk. Good times. I think the result is pretty good though. Much roomier aside from the fact that there are 4 baskets of laundry in there to be folded and put away. I so hate folding and putting away laundry.
It was so cold in my bedroom last night I had to build a tent of pillows and blankets around my face with only a breathing hole. It’s my favourite way to sleep, so I am happy it’s cold enough now. Do you like to sleep in a freezing room?
My 12 (almost 13) year old wants to read IT, but I don’t want to let her yet because of some super graphic scenes. I haven’t read much of his stuff because I scare easily, but she seems to have more of her dad’s tastes in movies and books. Is there a Stephen King book that isn’t quiet as bad as that one? What about Pet Cemetery, Kujo, or Carrie? If you have read any of those? Will it be too scary for a kid that has a pretty high tolerance for scary stuff?
Last year I bought Merle this cat Feisty Pet from Vat 19 (she loves Vat19 and watches their Youtube videos all the time). So if you are looking for an inexpensive gift for people/kids with unique tastes this may be for them. They are pretty awesome eh?
Who is going out on November 1st to buy all the mark down Halloween candy?

That Cousin It bucket is amazing!
We live out in the sticks at the moment, so only had about half a dozen trick or treaters. Even with giving out big handfuls to each kid we won’t be running low on candy for a couple of weeks.
We didn’t take our one-year-old out this year, but she loved seeing the big kids in costume and has been trying to say “trick or treat”.
Thanks! I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out at first though because of all the yarn I needed to use. I swear the amount of trick or treaters gets less each year and it makes me sad that it may end entirely. The girls had a really good haul this year though, which I swear they are almost completely finished :/
I think trick or treating for super young kids is mostly for the parents anyway. So they can bring them around in their uber cute costumes. When Roo was 2 she didn’t really understand the concept and when someone put candy in her bucket she reached in and gave them something in return. It was super sweet 🙂
