Happy Halloween!

>> Monday, November 1, 2010

We had a lovely Halloween here at Gratz Industries. Jo was torn between her Pokemon trainer costume and her Hogwarts Student costume. The weather decided for her and I think she looked terrific.

We decided to follow Neil Gaiman's lead and celebrate All Hallows Read by giving a scary book as a Halloween gift.
We did it up right with gift wrap and everything.
We got Jo a copy of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Brett Helquist. She DEVOURED it. That girl loves ghost stories - as long as they're not too scary - and this collection was just right. Now she's asking for the next two volumes in the series.

Hope ya'll had a great Halloween! And - just for fun - how awesome was the Halloween design on the Krispy Kreme box? We enjoyed far too many of these boxes this month. :-) Scary!

Awesome costume! You're original pictures of Jo's costume inspired my own choice to go as Ginny Weasley this year. The kids at my school loved it, especially the handful who also showed up at our Fall Festival as Gryffindor students. :)
