Marianna and me, all dressed up for Halloween...
Northville Community Group were hosting a party at the Working Mens club but we had to give it a miss - Marianna is still absolutely terrified of just about everything associated with the holiday. 'Mascots' (i.e. anything in a mask/costume) are her number one fear, which made for lots of tearful screaming fits as we made the rounds of local fetes, fairs, and festivals over the year!
So we had a little party at home instead, and got her involved with doing the face paint, etc, to see that it wasn't real. Anthony did her make up in the early afternoon, as a zombie princess, then after it had mostly rubbed off through play I redid it as a creepy doll before the 'party'.
Then I got to paint my mum green and give her warts and a monobrow. :D
Even Bracken got into the spirit!
By the end of the evening Marianna was opening the door herself to trick and treaters, and announced that next year she wanted to go with all the other kids.
What did you do for Halloween this year? :)
