Well, you don’t really need to smell my feet. But today was the day of the PTO haunted house. There was a friendly version from 5:00 to 6:00 (lights on), trick or treating through the school hallways from 6:00 to 7:00, and a scary version of the haunted house from 7:00 to 8:00 (lights out).
There was no chasing of the pregnant art teacher by ghouls. There were many cute and clever costumes, lots and lots of children, and tremendous noise levels. Denise’s grandson was adorable as a Lego block. Denise herself wore an owl costume that her daughter created, while Holly utilized her pregnancy to great effect as an eight ball. I put very little thought or effort into my representation of Little Red Riding Hood, but the kids grabbing candy from me didn’t seem to mind.
