Halloween 2007 has come and gone, so I thought I'd reminisce about our fantastic day by sharing my favorite moments...
AM Aerobics to techno versions of "Thriller" and the theme song from "The Addams Family" Eating Count Chocula with the boys in the morning Vampire teeth Participating in a 1st Grade Halloween party with kids almost as cute as Thomas Being reminded that Thomas really does have the sweetest teacher ever Dressing up as Pippi Longstocking for the party at work Receiving compliment after compliment on our two cute boys-- particularly on Tom's creative Pac-Man costume Making declicious homemade chili (Marilyn's recipe + onions) and cinnamon sugar scones Trick-or-treating around a block lined with mature maple trees, so we could smell the sweet autumn decay and hear the crispy swish of leaves beneath our feet as we walked
Knowing that my sons are still too young to consider that the longer they knock on doors, the more candy they'll get-- instead, they were both satisfied with a walk around one city block and their little buckets only half full Two sweet boys who were willing to share a piece of candy with their mom Temperatures in the mid-50's and clear-- perfect fall weather Attending a great Halloween party full of fun people, darling costumes, and, believe it or not, healthy food! It was a relief after all of the junk! Halloween games where everyone walks away with a prize! The boys falling asleep in the car on the way home from the party Me falling asleep to the sound of Jack Skellington in The Nightmare Before Christmas (a Halloween tradition)
