Several years back, one of Joe's co-workers made costumes for many of the people in Joe's office. She made a very impressive lion costume for Joe and he was able to wear it again this Halloween. I found a little lion costume for Evelyn and I was a safari sight-seer (I wanted to be a lion tamer but didn't have the tux and top hat)! We added a little sparkly goodness to Evelyn's costume- gold glitter shoes, but they turned out to be more of a walking hazard than a fashion statement (they were a size too big). The upside of putting Evelyn in shoes that were a little large was that she couldn't run away as we were trick-or-treating. Instead, Joe dutifully carried her everywhere.
We trick-or-treated with our good friends (Joe, Anna and Gus) and had dinner with Anna's family following the Halloween festivities. It was a really fun evening. Evelyn loved getting treats and helped herself to a Tootsie Roll Pop before we finished trick-or-treating!
