**Readers, scroll down until you see a post you've read already...I went update crazy today**
Happy Halloween...ish. Okay, I'm about half a month late. Better late than never. This year T went as Captain America (he's still obsessed with superheroes...and we have almost all the costumes). I bought a 2.00 costume last year for B...gotta love Halloween clearance..so thankfully it fit. No scouring the local Halloween stores or fighting the crowds at Target this year. It was seamless. Both dressed up at daycare. T was allowed to go to Kindergarten in his costume, and he wasn't supposed to. I was a bit irked that the daycare let him get on the bus fully Captain America-a-fide, and that his kindergarten teacher allowed him to wear it all day long (he was the ONLY one...mortified working mama here)...but such is life. He didn't seem to mind. T trick-or-treated for the two hour window and brought home more candy than his humanly possible to eat in a year. B and I struggled to stand outside in the cold rain to hand out our own candy. It was kinda miserable...but I stuck it out. I'm not a huge fan of this holiday either...given I feel like I'm contributing to the obesity of kids, and our own household...alas...I keep up the the Jonses and I comply...for my kids.
Hubs and I also attended a Halloween party this year as Mario & Luigi. I think it was one of my better ideas. It was easy and comfortable. I got to be the skinny one :)
