(in a really cute sweet way, my 2nd child came up to me and whispered, "Mom if you are going to have a high calorie day today, I'll save my Twix for you.")
Can I admit something to you? Not a fan of Halloween. Why? Sugar candy. Carving pumpkins (mess and more mess). Having to figure out costumes. I've been reading all my favorite blogs this past week and EVERYONE is so excited for Halloween and carving pumpkins and dressing up and I'm like, "am I the only one out there who wishes I could just pretend it didn't exist and make felt hair bows and satin flower hairclips all evening?" Wow - what a Hallo-Scrooge I am, but there you go, just keepin' it real.
Anyway, despite my true feelings, I'm big time sucking it up and all four kids have costumes secured, we're carving pumpkins this afternoon, I'm decorating the front door with them after pumpkins, the kids are playing Zombie Red Dead Redemption with their father right now, and I'm serving Zombie guts stew for dinner tonight (red bean chili).
