(Halloween just gets more involved and crazier every year. But I kind of like it, because, unlike Christmas, I’m not feeling like I should be having this major spiritual experience for my family. In December, I resent the crazy. In October, I think it’s fun to just enjoy the silliness of costumes, parties, candy, decorations, etc.)
Here’s the total for the month:
5 pumpkins carved (3 at 6:00 am this morning while I was running. Thanks, Ryan!)
8 Halloween parties attended (1 birthday, 2 school, 1 church, 1 work, 1 neighborhood,1 mom’s luncheon, 1 adult dance party!)
1 Darth Vader costume for Ryan, made from a Gabe’s size 8 cast-off costume.
3 different costumes on Jessica (1 wonder twin, 1 witch, 1 Jaclyn Smith/Charlies Angels)
5 childrens’ costumes (1 crayon, 1 Tom Brady, 1 Cleopatra, 1 Frankenstein and 1 butterfly)
2 plates of treats on our doorstep via the Boo Ghost
4 dishes prepared for the annual Halloween dinner (dinner in a pumpkin, glazed carrots, orange jello, breadstick bones and blood)
1,004,640 sugar grams consumed
7 family members exhausted but content after a month of family fun!
