What a wonderful Halloween — on a Friday, fairly mild, and with a bit of daylight to boot. What more could you ask for, besides M&Ms in the loot bags. I had to content myself with filching a couple of KitKat bars. The only hitch for me was Daniel’s Darth Maul makeup, which was more challenging than I would have hoped for a Halloween costume. I definitely have to get the Star Wars DVD from the library for the kids; what little they know of Star Wars they know from the Lego catalogue.
Laura is wearing an old traditional Croatian embroidered linen outfit (blouse, skirt, apron) my grandmother brought back from Yugoslavia, and which I wore at least one Halloween. It was too large for Laura last year, and the top will probably be too small next Halloween, so this was the year.

My Hollywood makeup job (note the removable parka hood Daniel pinned to his cape),
A Croatian Star Wars battle ballet (I think),
The kids decided to carve three of our little sugar pie pumpkins, and some of the mini gourd pumpkins from the store,
We were home by 7:30, and the kids happily spent the next two hours sorting and trading candy…
