I have been inspired by all of the Halloween posts and pics to let you in on how we celebrate Halloween at the Kally Casa. I will begin with a Kally Halloween Past aka Trick or Treat.
Miss B was 3 years old and ready to hit the Halloween homes in her sweet little Tinkerbell costume and pumpkin head candy bucket. Somehow she convinced Mr C to wear a neon orange wig as his costume. I lucked out since we did not own anymore wigs or costumes. My costume of choice for the night was a pair of khakis and a long sleeved t-shirt. We paraded her around the neighborhood in search of candy. She wouldn't say "Trick or Treat" by herself so we were calling it out with her. B loved all of the attention and the candy was an extra perk for her. We did get a couple of odd looks and I began to wonder what was wrong. Did that many people think it was weird for us to take a 3 year old trick or treating? After walking around 2 more blocks we finally decided to end this night of bumming for candy. Miss B went up to the door, rang the bell and this Grizzly Adams looking guy answered the door and told B he just ran out of candy. Then all of a sudden he looked at me, started to smile and said he would give her a can of pop. He plunked it into her bucket and smiled as we walked off. Mr C and I kept wondering why the weird turnabout from Grizzly when all of a sudden I looked down and realized the zipper on my khakis was down and wide open giving good ole Grizzly a view of my underwear. I was so embarrassed but later laughed about all those crazy looks I was getting and wondered what the heck people thought when I came up to a house with my fly open yelling "Trick or Treat!"
Am I alone or do you have an embarrassing Halloween mishap to share?
