Halloween helper



Santos was very interested in what I was doing with this sweet-smelling food orb. I carved a few pumpkins tonight. I have five total, and I usually like to do a theme with my carvings. This year I can't quite decide- Elizabeth I theme or Notre Dame theme? I also made over 50 sugar cookies which I've been decorating all day with sprinkles and a icing pen. They look so great I almost don't want to eat them! ...but I will. I still have to make Santos' new Halloween costume and some Halloween cookies for her. She was watching me make and decorate cookies for 2 days and is quite annoyed that they aren't for her. I got some teeny-tiny themed cookie cutters that are perfectly whippet mouth sized!

Do you dress up for Halloween? I don't, but if I had an elaborate and glamorous Vogue-esque party to go to, I would love to dress up as a geisha in full accurate regalia. Jon has been bugging me to make Santos a Lewis Hamilton McLaren Mercedes F1 outfit (fast car/fast dog) so that's what she's being this year (if I finish it in time!)

It's funny how Halloween is now part of the French calendar, at least commercially!

I actually do envy that string of holidays North Americans have before Christmas (Halloween, Thanksgiving), it feels like you have much more occasion to socialize and enjoy the coming end of the year.

I saw a whippet the other day and thought of you. I think that's going to be the case from now on.

I don't know if Santos can get any cuter! That last photo of her is just too sweet for words!

santos is so darn cute. i started following "her" on twitter.

funny thing about halloween- i really like the idea of it, and all the decorations (provided they're tasteful and NOT tacky)...not to mention it occurs during my favorite time of year. but i don't get into any celebrations or costumery of my own. i guess i enjoy it from a distance, more as an observer than participant.
the last time i dressed up for halloween was in the mid 80s. i went bar-hopping dressed as madonna. my best friend went as a punk rocker. fun times!
