We got him a vintage pith helmet and a khaki safari shirt and a butterfly net - viola, a lepidopterist, or someone who studies and collects butterflies and moths. Easy, thrifty, creative - if i do say so myself.
We hosted a party at our house, first Halloween in our very own house. I was hoping for trick or treaters so we set up in the driveway with lights, chairs and a table for drinks. I put the perishable food and things that needed plates inside. Lots of wonderful friends came and we sipped hot apple cider and made caramel apples. Great friends, great conversation... about 7 trick or treaters.
