Well, Halloween is done and gone for another year 🙂 I tried to get good costume pictures of my children, but they do not have any willpower to hold still when they are being dressed for trick or treat. Anyway, it was SLOW at our house this year, and since I had bought a TON of candy, a few kids got totally treated.
See? Moving kid…..
Hey…look, he ALMOST held still….
And the other?
Yup, she was happy too (except for the part where it was freezing out and it was necessary to wear some long sleeves under her "dead Cinderella" gown.
The following day we had a birthday to celebrate. So cake was in order, blue monster cake to be specific. With no monster cake pans available, I went impromptu and used Elmo. He still looks like Elmo, but dear son was quite impressed.
Seriously though, with two kids and Halloween and a Birthday, AND the time adjustment, our house is just short of an asylum. Parents know the feeling…where you wonder if people really WOULD bring them back, or if you could safely abandon them on a corner? By Sunday night, some semblance of sanity had been restored (SOME) at least enough that I was quite glad that I had not abandoned them 🙂 Girl knows her address anyway, so I can be assured they would be back. (Oh and since strangers read this, please be assured that I would NEVER really abandon my children. Really.)
