Happy Halloween!

I’m going to be a bunch of grapes for Halloween because purple is my favorite color and grapes are purple.

Charlie’s going as a rabbit bat. He says it’s a bat that has babies and hops. Here’s a picture I drew of Charlie’s costume.rabbitbat

What are you going to be for Halloween?

Matt Bumpers – Descarifier

mattbumpersMatt has this plan to de-scare me.

This is the plan:

“Every night until Halloween I’m going to tell you a terrifying story at bedtime. At first you’ll be really scared, but every night you’ll get a little less scared. By the time Halloween comes, when you watch a scary movie, you’ll just laugh.”

He says it works every time, but I’m the first person he’s tried it on.

He was right about the gold gnome shoes.

What do you think? Do you think Matt’s plan will work?

Alex’s Party

Every year I take the Squid trick or treating in our neighborhood, which is okay – except she’s a lot slower than me and I could get a whole bunch more candy without her.

But this year I’ve been invited to Alex’s house for a sleepover. And we’d trick or treat in his neighborhood. With all the big houses. Where they give out all the big candy bars.

I think I can talk my Mom into letting me go and maybe Matt will take the Squid trick or treating.

moviecoverThe only downside is we’re going to watch the scariest horror movie ever – The Shrieking Skull. And I HATE horror movies.

Halloween Costumes

jackoTommy’s going to be a werewolf.

Alex is going to be a ninja.

The Squid’s going as a bunch of grapes.

Hector – who has never been trick or treating because they don’t really have Halloween in Chile – is going as a chupacabra.

I still don’t know what I’m going to be.

Any ideas?
