I found a giant velvet robe at the thrift store a few weeks ago and bought it with plans of turning it into Red Riding Hood's cape. I brought it out to show Evan and he was so concerned that I thought Red Riding Hood wore a robe. Silly boy! I finished my cape just in the nick of time and I am so glad we thought to get a giant, wolf-ish looking dog so that he could be my costume accessory.
We live just blocks away from the classy historic district and get a ton of trick-or-treaters as a result. Last year we ended up locking the screen door to the front porch and shutting off the lights because every time the door-bell rang, puppy Gesso almost wet his pants. (and maybe we just wanted all the candy to ourselves.) We'll see how long we last this year. Happy Halloween everyone!
