Happy Halloween!


Afternoon Readers,

A princess, a crayon and a bumble bee all walk into a bar.

And the bartender says, "Thanks for coming to pick up your mom."

Kidding.

A little bit.

Probably going to spike the apple cider later with some bourbon.

The motley crew I just described are beyond excited, and it's probably my fault for fueling them up this morning with pancakes, syrup, and overly-high expectations of how fun it is to run through the rain and beg things off of strangers. 

I'm going to spend the day running around, buying a two pound bag of candy, dressing people up, sending them out to get more candy, and subsequently eating the candy I bought by myself.

I might even get a shower after everyone goes to bed, but you know me, I hate spoiling the end of any good, horrifying, possibly unsanitary story. 

So, from myself, Husband, Belle, the Crayon, and a baby who doesn't realize he wants to be a bumble bee, but will be forced into that fuzzy costume no matter what...

Happy Halloween, Readers!

  1. I felt bad for my kids teachers as I sent them off to school hyped up on the possibility of candy.

    But not that bad.

    1. Nope, you gotta do what you gotta do. And if that means sending them off to school so you can eat the candy you were planning on giving to trick or treaters, then so be it.

  3. Right now, we two grandparent people have a million bags lined up, ready to go. Can you all swing by, and we will give the left-over bags to you?

    1. I'll be right over. I'll pop the trunk and you start throwing it in there.

  4. "candy begging" - that's my new name for what we did last night. I took around a vampiress and a glowing stick boy, with our friends the skeleton and Mickey Mouse. Good times!! Now to not gain 20# from the loot, wish me luck!

    1. I'll take that 20, raise you 30, and take any extra candy you're willing to throw my way.

    1. What you're witnessing, my dear Stacey, is my face covered in fake glass. This is the Halloween I was pregnant with the twins. So chic.

  6. I love the candy swap. Get rid of all your candy just so your kids can bring home your neighbor's candy. :)
