Almost Halloween

Here it is, almost Halloween and the kids still haven't decided what they want to dress as for Halloween. This doesn't sound like TOO big of a problem, the big day is still a week away. But (there's always a but), the Halloween party at our church is tomorrow night. Oops. Bigger problem. And all morning tomorrow will be taken up with a service project for A's Scout den. We'll be cleaning up somewhere in town all morning, then they provide lunch. Then I want to go to the fall festival for a little bit - they often have fresh apple cider. I hope they have it this year! Last year they said the drought was too bad and there weren't enough apples. Sometimes they have been making it fresh on site and when that is the case, we get a gallon of the fresh to let it go hard and then a gallon of the pasteurized to refrigerate and drink.

It will be interesting to see what Halloween costumes they come up with. For A, there is always the stand-by of Harry Potter. I think one kid or the other has been HP for the last 5 or 6 years, at least at one Halloween event. Yes, sometimes my kids wear different costumes to different events all within a week. The year A was 4, I think, he had 3 different Halloween events - preschool party, church party and trick-or-treating. He wore 3 different costumes (all hand-me-downs or yard sale). A's other choice this year seems to be Bionicle. M is having a harder time as he doesn't have hand-me-downs. We have discussed ninja or some manga figure. Who knows what it will be. I'll try to get pictures.
