Halloween was a hit or miss affair when I was kid, and MoBob didn't really experience the madness until we moved back to the US. So planning Halloween for Z was fun for both of us. I tried to appreciate the reality that this is probably the last year that I can tell Z what to wear.
I wasn't this committed to a costume though.
We visited the Alliance Française for crafts, games, and storytime.
We recycled the outfit from the SCOTUS-themed birthday party earlier this year so that Z can dress up as an activist judge. We went T or T-ing around the complex and ended the evening at a low-key costume party.
Growing up in California I was familiar with the Day of the Dead, and I was happy to take Z to the celebration at the National Museum of the American Indian. Here Z is contemplating the Virgin Mary/Eve/Heavenly Mother.
We visited the library afterwards and then the duck pond.
Z looooves flashlights so while MB had a conference call last night we set up "camp" in the living room and watched the light's magic.
