It has been a stormy week, so there has been much discussion about cold weather Halloween costumes. Many years the kids and their costumes are covered up by coats, hats, boots and gloves. Several solutions can be employed. The child can go as a skier, a hunter, or some other being that calls for heavy clothing. One Wyoming native offered that his mother always dressed him as a "fat ghost"--she'd throw a sheet with eyeholes over his winter wear. Luckily, Halloween marked the start of a warming trend. It was 35 degrees instead of twenty. Here's some photos from our Halloween. Bridget and Chris came from Denver to help Siobhan, 5, Seamus, 3, and Maeve, 1, trick or treat in Baggs, 25 miles away, and points in between.
