Farm Fresh

… Fresh on to the farm. Here is an occassional chronicle of a new family in a small town.

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em

A little late for the holiday, but this year was the best Halloween ever!  After years of failed costumes, I finally got one right. Not my own of course, but Porter’s skunk costume was a big hit!  Although it was incredibly simple, I couldn’t have done it without my mom. She watched Porter while I cut and sewed the felted parts onto Porter’s black hoodie. Black pants and black socks with white circles for paw prints added the finishing touches and it’s true, when crawling on the ground Porter looked like a real skunk.

He got to show off his duds at our block party. We invited everyone over for halloween beef stew and gross champagne cocktails and then the party moved to Natalie and Tanner’s. They, of course went all out with a total of I think about 6 carved pumpkins, black ice, a leaf path, cornstalks and of course full sized candy bars for treats.  We did our best to step up by projecting Nosferatu on the small building between us.

And despite the fact that only 200 people live in town, we got about 30 trick or treaters. Everythign form the little princess to the apathetic teens just out for a treat. Of course you have to give them candy for fear of the trick! The best costume went to Henrik, Howard and Lorri’s son who came as a Robotic Candy Disposal Unit.
