The t-shirts are still out, but they're under the flannels - it's COLD in the Mid-Columbia! It's still sunny and clear, but twenty degrees colder during the day and down to 18 degrees at night - brrrrrr!
I was finishing up Kirsten's costume today, making up the bonnet and hemming the dress. She looked real cute. After that little chore was over, I made up a couple of goodie bags for Hans and Jaeger who were not trick or treating tonight. You see Hans has a corn allergy so it's kinda futile to go out after sweets filled with corn syrup. Hershey bars and Kit Kats are sweetened with sugar so that's what I filled their bags with. Maybe in a year or two Hans can go out with Aunt Kirsten and they can do some trading later.
Under the kids' costumes tonight were several layers of clothes since it's so cold. The boys actually were able to get jackets on under their cloaks, Kirsten had a sweater over her dress. Thankfully there is not a breath of wind tonight so with all those layers in addition to the running between houses, the kids stayed fairly warm. Their cheeks were all pink, but they had a great time.
