Halloween, after-the-fact

I'm not a big fan of Halloween, especially so the older I get. We did buy a secondhand costume for the baby, but decided last minute that it was going to be too hot for him to wear. So the day before Halloween, I dressed him up as a little business-baby, and we went into J's work for their kids' Halloween party. Then on Halloween night, with our big bags of candy open, ready to hand out, we dressed him a shirt that said "I want my mummy." I'll try to get a picture up later, but tonight is going to be crazy, I know it already.

The biggest disappointment, though, was the small number of kids that came by.

Whoa, do we ever have too much candy!

I always send someone out for more candy - and I'm always sorry.

We must be neighbors. (you could be my neighbor...she's never spoken to me and I've only caught glimpses of her as she runs from her car into her house...but, no baby next door, so nah)

I stayed home with Gab to give out candy. Got a whopping 3 trick-or-treaters! Three??!! So, now we have all the candy I bought plus the loot my son brought home. Ugh.

How fun that would be if we were neighbors! But alas, we are not...I've met all (or pretty close) to all the neighbors at a couple of parties since we've moved here.

I'm trying to figure out what to do with all this candy before PMS strikes...

I ran out of candy by 8:00 this year. You could have sent some my way.

Psst! I moved my blog. Too many students found it.

Hey Peevish-

I went looking for you today, and I was disappointed to find no such blog (or something). I was afraid I had lost you for good. But the link for your name still doesn't bring up your site.

Aha! I am so brilliant. Whew!
