This is Halloween.

I’m ready for a long winter’s nap.  Another Halloween has come and gone.  A successful homemade costume if I say so myself, a little fun sewing for myself and the decorating all came together.  The pumpkins were carved in the traditional “Shark, Skeleton Fish, and Squid Fight a Sperm Whale” motifs, along with some scary faces.

There were “mummy hotdogs” for dinner and hot chocolate for a treat and a nice warm fire to top everything off.  Plus our black cat was appropriately annoyed by all the goings on for the entire day.

My son brought back enough candy to last us till the New Year, including multiple regular sized bag of M&M’s and Skittles, a few glow in the dark things and one book (yep, some lady down the street was giving out books!  How great is that?)

And I’m just hoping he’s tired enough to sleep the whole night through and let me enjoy that extra hour tonight.

  1. Right. I need to spend Halloween at yours, somewhere where grown adults don't think I'm crazy for going all out (liturgical and secular). Was the title meant to get The Nightmare Before Christmas song stuck in my head? 😛
