so i’m still not sure how i feel about halloween in general, but the holiday this year is proving to be much more fun since eleanor and samson are at ages where they can enjoy it more. we have been prepping all month about “trick or treat-ing” and costumes and all of that. eleanor wanted to be a lady bug and then a monkey and then last week she said, “actually…. how about i be a pumpkin!” and this time it stuck. all week she kept talking about it, sometimes telling a stranger on the street, “i be a pumpkin!” before even saying hello! so we found an incredibly over priced and terribly made pumpkin costume and she has been in heaven! she’s been wearing it everyday around the apartment but saturday we finally had an excuse to wear it out to our church’s halloween party! we dressed samson up as a train engineer and he surprised us all by keeping his hat on. he was kind of the cutest thing ever.
