Trick or treat!?

Happy Halloween!

As the daughter of an Scottish ex-pat, dressing up and ‘guising‘ on ‘All Hallows Eve‘ was as much a part of my childhood as was barbecuing on Australia Day… In fact, probably more so.

To 6 year old me, Halloween was about making costumes out of things we found at home, practicing a trick to do in exchange for treats, “dooking for apples“, and staying up past bed time on a school night.

And that’s the kind of Halloween I want Ayla to know.

So of course for Ayla’s first Halloween I couldn’t refuse the chance to dress her up!

Using a little black frock, some costume jewellery and a bit of black make up, Baby Ayla was quickly and easily transformed into … Duh duh duuuhhhhh….. Baby Zombie.

Ayla loved her costume, especially the necklace, and she played with the jack-o-latern Daddy carved for her for ages.

And, while we won’t be trick-or-treating this year, it was great fun to dress up, take pics and imagine what next years Halloween will be like.

I wonder what Ayla will want to dress up as?
