The Vegan Mini Mall; Sweetpea Bakery, Herbivore, Food Fight Grocery, and Scapegoat Tattoo, hosted a vegan halloween for the kiddos. There was cupcakes, cookie decorating, apple bobbing, photo backdrops, and buckets of vegan candy. I repeatedly suggested that Halen pick out chick-o-sticks. He kept going for strawberry airheads. It's a good thing that we did go there, because the house trick or treating didn't get us a single vegan thing, other than the mini bottle of spiced rum that I picked out of someone's 'Adult treat' basket. It was still oodles of fun to go from house to house and trick or treat. We came home, sorted through the candy, and gave out all the non-vegan stuff to trick or treaters that came to our house. Halen had just as much fun giving candy to people coming to our house as he did getting it.
On another exciting note, we got an offer on our place. It's sooner than we expected and they want to buy and move in within a couple of weeks! We don't have all our ducks in a row to buy anything yet, so we're most likely looking at renting something. Yahoo.
