This is our attempt at a gingerbread house. Hannah, Hillary, Josh and I attempted to construct one and it was hilarious. We went through a lot of icing, one of the walls cracked, candy was everywhere, things fell apart and the roof was supported by toothpicks and pretzels. But it turned out alright and it was fun making it. The best part was that it was still standing the next morning.
For Halloween I didn’t go out, or party or drink or whatever you do on Halloween now. I just stayed in with Hannah and we gave out candy to the kids that came to her house, which wasn’t many, because of the cold and snow. Yeah, it was kind of crazy that it snowed on Halloween this year. But it was still a fun night with ghost stories and a Halloween story.
Every year at Marian the students decorate their hallways in the dorms for the kids that come trick or treating. They come from the neighborhoods around Marian and some of the professors bring their kids too. Hannah’s floor had a carnival theme and she and her roommate dressed up as a lion and a lion tamer. As usual my floor tried to make their’s as scary as possible, complete with Michael Myers, a rabid wolf, clowns and a pitch black hallway with strobe lights. Needless to say the kids liked Hannah’s floor much more than mine and they had a great time. It was fun watching the kids in their various costumes have a good time.
