Tell me it's not too late....


OK, so I am very clear on the fact that you have to be ready for Halloween on Halloween; costume needs to be finished and you need to go out and trick-or-treat that day. No catching up after the fact. So I had all that nailed down but it's elsewhere in my life (and here on my blog especially) that I'm running woefully behind. I hope you'll indulge me in some catch-up, and understand that Dean would be quite put off if I'd made him go through the whole photo-shoot thing for no purpose.

He was a gallant and eager Legolas. He was even recognized -- instantly! -- by two moms answering two different trick-or-treat doors. He took with him the bow, but not the arrows....



And here's the inspiration-recreation, from here. We'll be throwing out the leftover candy from the night's spoils sometime around Easter or so.

It cannot be too late, or I am doomed.
Dean looks wonderful... noble and proud, like a confident elf should be. Happy Halloween!

If you read my blog you will see that I too amy playing catch up on things I am less than enthusiastic about getting down to. Is it time for another of our work together days I wonder?
