|My little Blue Morph/Blimp Man|
I am not much of a Halloween fan, but will join in on the fun. I was going to dress up like one of our all time childhood favorites, Mr. Rogers, but things did not quite work out. Oh well, I settled for a jewel thief that could not contain herself or her loot!! I might have to don my Mr. Rogers look another time for you all. Don't worry about me following through, just stay tuned.
I got a little "stressed" as I had to scramble to get ready for the little pumpkins to stop by. Our neighborhood has been deemed the "place" to be and things get started around 5. So when I was still working on my pasta sauce, the bell rang!! What?? The bagpiped parade of costumes is over already? Yes, you read correctly. My neighbor is a graduate of the military college here and every year he leads our procession of costumed cuties around the neighborhood by bagpipes!! He is truly amazing and is always a hit!! The parade seemed to end early this year since we did not attend. I thought I had more time to finish dinner, dress and help my kids get ready?? My husband was on his way in from a business trip and I was going it alone for the moment. I quickly gave out candy to this sweet little fairy and ran back in to complete dinner, etc. I wanted my kids to have a hearty meal to help absorb all the candy they would eat throughout the night.
Everyone was dressed and ready to go and of course I did not get a group photo?? What? How did this happen?? Well, my youngest daughter was going with a group of friends, my son was waiting on my husband to come home and my oldest was going with friends in a different direction and I stayed behind to pass out candy. Whew, I get a bit overwhelmed when things start to get out of my control, especially when I thought I had a handle on it all. Anyway, it all worked out and candy was given, accepted and eaten!! I may or may not have eaten 3 or more pieces of candy as I prepared this post.
How about you and your family??
How did things go for you??
Wow, can you believe it??
