Fall Activity: Belated Halloween

For the second year in a row, due to bad weather, the kids didn't get to celebrate Halloween on October 31st. It just feels so out of place and time but what can we do?. Nobody can control the weather!. Nonetheless, the kids got to wear their costumes on Monday, November 5th. We started trick-or-treating around 2:45pm on our street but nobody was home. Earlier that day, I was told by a friend, that people were going to the park to hand out candy to the kids. I must say it was nice and different!. To my surprise, many trick-or-treaters did in fact ring our door bell and it felt just like Halloween.
This year our daughter, and her best friend dressed up as the "Phoenix". My mom had to make their costumes using a morph suit, and gold spandex fabric. It was a lot of work, but they turned out great!.
Our middle son is at that age when putting on a costume is not the "thing" to do, his "t-shirt" was his costume. And, our youngest son, was a chef.

Hopefully next year we get to celebrate on the 31st.
