Trick or...whatever...

There were years when my mom made my Halloween costume, per my exact wishes, and there were years that I was directed to the closets to create some sort of costume out of whatever I found in there.
We went with Plan B this year.

My boy dressed himself in bubble wrap and called himself Pop Rocks.

I was the Queen Bee (Honey, it's not easy being queen).

And a lesson in the economic theory of value, namely willingness to pay: One Heath Bar has a market value of one Lemon Heads, one Twizzler, one Sour Patch and one Whoppers. Admittedly, it is a very small market, just Jack and Anna, but a market nonetheless. And Anna drives a very hard bargain.

Those costumes are great! I love that pumpkin! My kids have not thought of the exchanging candy idea...they just want the other to stay away from their bucket :)
