The Halloween that wasn't.
The Spawn has shown almost no interest in the whole Halloween thing so far. She did like making jack-o-lanterns. Any opportunity to draw on an unusual surface is a sure-fire winner. Pumpkin pie interests her also. But dressing up, not at all. The Better Half is theorizing that she doesn't really see the point. She pretends all the time and doesn't need fancy clothing. Fancy clothing is fun, but usually unrelated to the pretend of the moment. I guess she might figure it sounds like Halloween is a day when the rest of the world joins her in pretending. Whatever the case may be, no costume. We may go to some low-key event so she can see other costumes (which would probably cause her to finally want to dress up) or we may just say the heck with it for this year. Maybe we'll just stay home and make a gluten-free pumpkin pie.
