Halloween

Happy Halloween from Nornor, Greta and Gavin!

It's my first Halloween!

They are now nestled all snug in their beds (except for Nora who may have decided she’s not going to go to sleep tonight!!??)

Tricks or treats? Mmmm... No thanks.

I'll have milks or baffs, please.

All the costumes are put away, colored hairspray washed down the drain, and battery operated jack-o-lantern candles turned off. The smell of roasted pumpkin seeds, banana bread, homemade chicken soup and WD-40 linger in the air. The result of a cooking/baking frenzy and a desperate attempt to remove a “theatrical scar” from Gavin’s cheek when it was discovered that the “Cinema Secrets Makeup and Adhesive Remover” nonchalantly referred to in Step 4 was conveniently sold separately from the “Cinema Secrets Special FX scar kit”. Good thinking, Cinema Secrets people!

Nora wanted nothing to do with a cold, rainy Halloween night and bid her brother and sister farewell as they headed out into the neighborhoods with their chaperoned groups of friends. Her  warm baff was the “treat” she was indulging in when her damp and frozen siblings returned a couple hours later laden down with several pounds of candy. They were each eager to get out of their costumes and right into bed. They probably would have have done just that without any concern about any face makeup or how it might affect their bed sheets. Thank goodness for moms! And showers!

Greta’s bedtime routine involved the extra step of putting her tooth under her pillow — the first tooth she’s ever lost!  It was actually a little witch who lost her tooth while she was getting ready this evening! I helped Greta compose a sweet note to the fairy (only because it was screaming late) to which hopefully the tooth fairy will respond!

The little mermaid has finally fallen asleep and now so must I! First I need to make sure the front door is unlocked so the fairy can get in.

Goodnight and we hope your Halloween was happy!

I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.

  1. IT SOUNDS LIKE GAVIN AND GRETA GOT A LOT OF GOODIES. ALL THREE OF THE CHILDREN LOOKED REALLY GOOD. TOO BAD IT WAS SO COLD AND RAINY. I DON’T KNOW WHO GAVIN WAS SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE, BUT HE SURE LOOKED LIKE “CHUCKY” THE DOLL ON THAT ONE MOVIE. THE MAKEUP ON THE TWO BIG KIDS WAS REALLY GREAT!!! I LOVE NORA IN HER MERMAID COSTUME. PRETTIEST LITTLE MERMAID EVER!!! SHE ALSO LOOKED SO CUTE IN HER PUMPKIN P.J.’S. AND THE FLOWER ONES LOOKS SO PRETTY ON HER. SHE IS SUCH A HAPPY BABY. LOVE THE BIG SMILES. IT IS A LITTLE AFTER 4 A.M. HERE, SO GUESS I BETTER HEAD TO BED. LOVE YOU ALL. HOPE NORA FINALLY DECIDED TO GO NIGHT-NIGHT, SO MOMMY CAN GET SOME SLEEP. LOVE YOU ALL. GOOD NIGHT, AND GOD BLESS.

  2. SORRY GRETA, I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT YOU MADE A BEAUTIFUL WITCH, AND THAT BIG SMILE WAS WONDERFUL. I COULD NOT GO TO BED WITHOUT TELLING YOU WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WITCH YOU WERE. NOW I REALLY AM GOING TO BED. GOD BLESS.

  3. Soooo sweet in her Halloween PJ!!
    Greta’s smile is unmistakable !!.
    The Spanish equivalent of the fairy is the Ratoncito Perez who also leaves a small gift or a coin to those children whose tooth fell out 🙂
