We spent the entire day primping and preparing to get ready for trick-or-treating while Daddy had to work. We watched 3 movies about Halloween throughout the day as well. Halloween is a serious holiday (Sabbat) for this family, so the day is taken off from homeschooling (though obviously not from work). There’s quite a bit that went into my costume, a decent amount of prep for MHG’s and Cindy…well, we pretty much threw her costume on and were off.
Tigger looked pretty cute in MHG’s wig, lol! She put it on him.
And because I don’t have all day to edit photos the day before we hit the road…here’s the rest in their “untouched” format. ;)
This photo was taken by the RV resort management. I absolutely adore them! We’re really going to miss them when we leave in a few days. :( Our time here has been some of the best months of our lives!!!
Walking around an RV park, in gravel, for 1 1/2 hours in 3” high heels has got to be one of the stupidest things I have ever done! Next time, I’m going in my slippers or gym shoes! I have a bruise on the top of my right foot now that’s almost the whole size of my foot! Lesson learned for sure!
It was an INCREDIBLY long day AND night. Just before we started to settle in for the evening though, Daddy had one more thing up his sleeve…
He had joked earlier in the week that he was gonna scare MHG on Halloween. She got all tough and told him he wouldn’t be able to. As the week played out, she started to get more and more excited about him scaring her and began to tell everyone about it. Soooooooooooo…after we got home and she was brushing her teeth, I cracked open their back door (I’m pretty sure they forgot it even existed, since it’s been covered by a blanket for 6 mo), and I told MHG to put her clothes away in her dresser. Her dresser is in the back corner right next to the door. I made up some silly excuse about wanting to record the evening’s last minute events for my blog…which technically was the the truth…and as she opened her drawer, Daddy reached in and yelled. I have never seen that girl freak out so much in her whole entire LIFE! For nearly 20 minutes afterwards, she skulked in the corner of her top bunk yelling at Daddy and crying. The poor thing. It WAS funny though…now she knows better than to challenge her father. ;) Sorry the video is so hard to see, I don’t have a video camera so I can only record in short clips via my camera.
After MHG calmed down and I coaxed her outta her room, she called all the Grandparents. The girls snuck wayyyyyyyyy too many pieces of candy while they were on the phone, so they were bouncing off the walls til almost midnight!
After the girls and Daddy were all peacefully sleeping in their own beds, I snuck out right before midnight to have the most spiritually intense ritual I have ever had on a Sabbat in my life! It was amazing. Doing a ritual during the midnight our is beyond words. Samhain is the time for remembering and paying homage to your ancestors, and I did just that. I could really sense my Grandparents presence beside me. It was so special.
I hope your Halloween’s were special as well and that you all had a great and safe time!
