Princess Tiana and Batman are ready to take off.
I must confess that Halloween is not my favorite holiday. I don't dress up. I don't decorate. I'll admit it -- I'm a Halloween party pooper. Apparently, Halloween is the new Christmas because the amount of parties/activities my kids were invited to was insane. They each had one at school, plus OC trick or treating, church carnival, four (FOUR!) Halloween parties, and then trick or treating. I see people on facebook going to Storybook Forrest or Haunt the Zoo and I'm like, "WHY?" I can't imagine taking my kids to one more Halloween activity. I did Kendall's hair in an up do this year complete with glitter hair spray and the hair pins I wore in my wedding. It seems to be the last year she wants to be something "princess"-y. She's already said that next year she wants to be a witch and wear lots of spiders on her hand. Cason wants to be a zombie. I guess I should go purchase fake blood now while it's on sale. There goes my dream of dressing them up as the Spartan cheerleaders.
Overall, the kids had a great time and more importantly got loads of candy. The two scariest things about Hallween were 1) the price of candy and 2) the check engine light coming on in my car. Naturally.
Bunco (which I'm hosting)
Thanksgiving (which I'm helping host)
Christmas in Texas
And in addition to that, we've ripped apart our main bathroom in the house. If you don't hear from me soon, I've checked into a mental institution.
