Despite the terrible storm that came close, we were spared and got only rain. Halloween brought fun, more damp weather, a bad ole witch, 2 good witches and an american hero! No bystanders in the shop were harmed or terribly frightened by ghouls or goblins.
Halloween became so much more fun once we started having kids who wear cute costumes…after much debate (UPS Man? Mailman? UPS Man? Mailman?), the Boxcar Toddler decided to be a U.S. Mailman this year. He delivered hand drawn letters to lucky people all over the building. (and yes, there is, in existence, a very cute Boxcar Baby #2, who is dressed up as the letter “J” and even wore a Halloween bib….but we forgot to take a photo of her! Typical second child, right?!?!)
We wanted to dress the Boxcar Baby up as a letterpress, but we couldn’t decide: Vandercook or C&P? C&P or Vandercook? Heidelberg Cylinder? Vandercook? The penguin costume was our compromise.
