Today was the day that all the little kids went in to Tyler’s office for some ‘trick-or-treating’ All Saints style.
If you remember from a few weeks ago, I shared that I had been working on Marie's costume. Thankfully I finished it up this morning and I think she ended up looking pretty cute!
The kids went from cubicle to cubicle collecting their candy. Marie was so sacrificial and decided to give hers to the poor :)
But we kept catching her trying to sneak a few for herself!
On the way around the office we ran into another Mother Teresa (Miss Cynthia) who organized the whole event.
The employees were encouraged to dress up as saints or figures from the Bible as well.
Tyler informed me of this yesterday morning. He wanted to dress up as St. Joseph of Cupertino (his patron saint). I went to the thrift store hoping to find some brown fabric or sheet to use as a robe. But I had no success. So I went to Target and bought a king sized flat sheet and crossed my fingers that I could turn it into something that somewhat resembled a monk’s robe.
I’m happy to say that with a few hours of labor it turned out looking pretty good!
By the end, Marie was getting pretty tired and cranky. As we put her in the car for the drive home we gave her a bite sized Hershey bar (in the wrapper) to play with and gnaw on. Since she had been doing this for the last 30 minutes or so I didn’t think it would do any harm… until half way home when I could smell chocolate from the backseat.
I knew that the wrapper had burst and was sure Marie would be a mess by the time we got home.
This is how I found her…
… lesson learned!
Have a great Halloween and All Saints Day!
