With very little bribery I convinced the kids to dress as pirates this year.
A matching skirt and vest, a couple of hand stitched hats, and some dollar store swords later.... and we were in the pillaging and plundering business!
They collected lots of booty on Saturday night (in these parts, trick-or-treating is scheduled for the Saturday before the 31st, from 6:30-8:00pm), and even managed to stay warm with a few layers under their costumes.
PS: The pirate password is "Yo Ho Ho".
Don't say you never learned anything on this blog. ;)
