into battle

Hallowed weenie

The kids had a good little Halloween. O made Sebastian a robot costume out of a cardbox box, dryer duct, tape, pipe insulation, silver paint, reflectors, a paper paint bucket, and the cover to an old smoke detector (thank you Martha Stewart), and Sophie wore black tights and a turtleneck with a little cat ears from the Great Pretend Ears (thank you Target). They were both a big hit at day care, naturally.

This was the first time Seb actually walked around and did trick-or-treating. At first, he was tentative, but then as he realized that there was candy involved, he quickly caught on and we ended up doing about twelve houses instead of our originally planned five. And this is despite the fact that it wasn't easy to get up the stepper steps in this customers. Where there's a will, there's a way !
