This year, P was the only one going to dress up. The rest of us feel like we're a little bit too mature to be walking door to door and trick or treatin'. So, for fun I bought C and Richard the Groucho Marx glasses to wear. C had another idea. He took one of the huge pumpkins I had on the front porch, carved a face in it, hallowed it out and made a hole in the back that allowed him to slip the pumpkin over his head. He sat in a chair on the front lawn with a hoodie pulled up over his pumpkin head and held the bowl of candy. As little kiddos walked up to him - some very cautiously - he would start moving or jump up at them. It was funny to watch them squirm. He got lots of 'that is a cool idea!' from dads walking the T or T trail.
Richard gave up his Groucho costume so my sister could have one to wear. He caught us stealing some candy as we were heading to the church to see the blow up guy.
He was just thrilled to be able to dress up!!!
