Small went off to school armed with his costume for the afternoon, a tin of yummy decorated gingerbread, a hat to cover his cast (can't get wet and it's raining AGAIN!), waterproof coat and Wellies.
Smallest and I sat in the basement after breakfast and played Super Mario Bros (in our pyjamas - don't tell Small he will be very jealous. Don't tell Huffle!). I left Smallest playing Wii I went and got ready, tidied up breakfast things and then we went out. Today we needed to get cheese (not a thing we normally run out of but we haven't had any since the weekend), and ginger to make more gingerbread (for us this time). Smallest bought himself a double ended lightsaber with his money. (Which i actually have to take back because i cant get the batteries in because the scrw is unscrewable). We were going to have lunch out but Smallest said he preferred to go home. We had lunch and then went out again to the school and watched the Halloween Parade through the Hamlet.

The kids crossing the four corners
While we were waiting for them to appear again we watched this zombie play the organ. It moved and there was music coming from it. This house belongs to the crossing lady.
Smallest patiently waiting
...and right at the back is Small.
Smallest and I came home. He watched TV for a while. I emptied the dishwasher and tried to Skype LizzieDotDot but she was out trick or treating. I wanted to see her boys in their costumes. It doesn't seem five minutes ago that we were trick or treating with her, around the village, bumping into Everett and all our friends. The kids had a great time.
Smallest and I made some more gingerbread biscuits and then we had a quick game together on the Wii. I left the kitchen in a big mess and then Smallest and I went back to school for TaeKwonDo. Most of the kids were still wearing their costumes and The Master asked them each to come up to the front and tell everyone their name and what they were dressed as and then show a move that their character does. He spent a long time explaining to them that they should make eye contact with people and not fidget and speak clearly.
At the end they all had a dance and the Master gave them some sweets.
We came home. I made dinner for the boys. Cleared up the kitchen. Huffle came home. Smallest was horrible and ended up in his room to think about whether he deserved to go out trick or treating, then came down and finished his dinner. It was still raining. Neither Huffle or I wanted to go out but we did.
We started with Drew's house because we knew she was going out. She gave them a monkey each and a bag of goodies.
(The eyeball or tattoo comment was made by a lady at one of the houses. She opened the door, told the boys they looked scary and then said "eyeball or tattoo?" Fabulous. She won comment of the night.
