What is a pirate's favorite letter?
Hannah was a pirate for Halloween. A couple of weeks ago she said she wanted to be a pirate, a ballerina or a princess. I thought the pirate was by far the most original of the group so I ahem... gently pushed her towards pirate. Besides she is a princess every day and she has enough tutus to choke a horse. I think I had it in the bag when she found out that a sword was involved. A girl has got to have a weapon.
Our first Halloween event was at our local church. Hannah demonstrated how you play "Bob for Apples".
Step one: dunk your head in the bucket once. Make sure you get your entire head wet. It might not be a bad idea to NOT breathe through your nose.
Step two: Quickly remove head to avoid drowning.
Step three: Cry. Loudly.
Step four: Receive apple out of pity.
She also got her face painted again - look familiar?
In the end, Hannah danced, ran around, played bingo and consumed enough sugar to last her until next Halloween. Happy Halloween!
