I attended my last elementary Halloween party. I can't believe that Brother Bear won't have anymore Halloween Parades at school. They don't have them in middle school and this is my last year with an elementary age student.
Yikes! How do our children grow up so fast?
We ended up trick or treating in a very cold (38 degrees) misting rain. I went "old school" and huffed the few blocks with the kids in that weather to enjoy the evening. I must say, if you feel you have to drive your child from door to door, you may as well take them to the grocery store and just pick out a bag of candy. I was so angry at parents speeding through the neighborhoods then letting their kids jump out to get candy. Where is the spirit of the evening in that?
I really enjoy chatting with other parents as we watch our kids run from house to house and waving a friendly hello to the person passing out goodies to our kids. It's part of the Halloween fun. My little bears are growing up and soon they will be too big to enjoy trick or treat fun. It really is a fun evening walking through the neighborhood. (We trick or treat by my aunt's house since we live out in the country)
In the spirit of my favorite holiday, I knitted up a couple more items from the Mamma4Earth KAL on Ravelry. Last week I shared the Witches Hat. This week, I completed the Cat and a pumpkin. I think I shall knit a few more items from her patterns and create a knitted display for work next year.
