It's that time of the year again.... pumpkins are being carved, there are decorations all over the town and Josie is raiding our old dress-up-clothes bin for silly things to wear. It must be time for the Islanders' annual Hockey Halloween Spook-tacular.
This year, Josie put on a rainbow tutu and a funny headband and got on the ice.
She was joined by an emoji and many, many fairy princesses.
One of her team mates dressed as a mouse - she looked wonderfully warm and cozy to me, but Josie told me that the poor girl was drenched in sweat by the end of the practice.
They do actually practice at the Hockey Halloween Spook-tacular.
Here is Josie with her friend Brooke:
and here is the entire group (that's the a few teams, by the way. They share the ice on Thursday)
For the real Halloween celebration on Monday, Josie is going to be either Thing 1 or Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss. I'm not sure if she and her friend from school have decided who will be which Thing. Josie is our only trick-or-treater left. Georgia is having friends over to watch a scary movie and Henry has decided that he will help me answer the door and pass out the candy.
We only get one or two groups of trick-or-treaters at our house, so mostly Henry will be helping me sit and eat the candy directly from the bowl.
It will be fun, either way.
