Henry wore his wolf costume one last time today for Halloween. He wore it to daycare, where Maryellen had a party, and kept it on when he got home to hand out candy and trick or treat for the first time in our building. All the kids in the neighborhood seemed especially jubilant this Halloween. It might be because Halloween really didn’t happen last year due to the storm, or maybe I just notice more because Henry’s involved now.
Today we attended a Halloween-themed party in our neighborhood organized by the real estate company that manages our building. There was a pumpkin patch with carving and decorating stations, apple cider, snacks and music. Henry also publicly debuted his Halloween costume. Though one woman asked if he was an angry koala (?), he’s actually a ferocious wolf.
On a side note, I’m proposing that henceforth, an “Angry Koala” will be 2 oz Bundaberg rum, 1 oz Kahlua, 1 oz Coca-Cola and 1 oz light cream served over crushed ice.
