Shaggy, Crayons and Other Characters

Guess who was Shaggy once again? If you guessed Lance, you were absolutely right.

Last night was Lance's school Halloween Dance. We don't like to encourage Halloween much, but Lance loves it and since he is so innocent and doesn't understand the evil behind it, we let him have fun. Sorry, I digress. I took him to the dance and couldn't help enjoying myself. He walked around the dance floor looking at every one's costumes. Lance doesn't dance. Why? I am not sure, but he would rather walk around and look at all the people while they dance. So, that's what he did all evening, well that, and eat pizza. He always has room for pizza.

When we got in the car, he started talking and didn't stop until he went to bed. He saw Miss Elaine dressed as an old man and Jessica dressed as a crayon. There was a bat, several Draculas, an Egyptian Princess, a couple Minnie Mouses as well as a few Elvises. He saw witches, Michael Jacksons and some greasers. Another friend was what Lance said was "a waitress" she was dressed in a 50's style waitress costume, so cute. He also saw some policemen and firemen and doctors and nurses and even a veterinarian. Need less to say, he will be talking about all the characters and I do mean "characters" :-) for quite a while. It was so much fun watching all these people with challenges, having a great time. I do have to admit that all the staff people and high school kids who came in for their community service hours, had just as much fun.

We don't do halloween either but I agree with letting Lance have fun with it. It really is fun to dress up!

Through your eyes of love and apt descriptions I've come to love this young man! I would have spent my time at the dance watching Lance! The simplicity and joy he experiences are true and "in your words" innocent. Would that we were all that innocent, simple and joyful!

Not a thing wrong with liking to be shaggy! Sounds like Lance had a good time, some time its better to observe then be observed!

Love this post. I can just imagine Lance's joy at the costumes and how that one experience will be a month of remembering for him. I am so glad that you allow him to participate in this party and glad that it is available for him. Simple, innocent, observant, fun-loving . . . if we could all be more like Lance.
