Happy Anniversary, YT2095!!

Today's my boy's 14th, so he's asked for Pickup Stix (chinese). Sounds good to me!

Chili is our traditional halloween supper. Its quick and keeps you warm (in oh so many ways!) while you're out trick or treating.

Happy Anniversary yt! Bucky, if you take the cutie on your own all the "Desperate Housewives" give extra candy to the brave daddy with the cute kid. Heh heh heh. Leave the DW at home.

happy birthday to your pride and joy, jkath!

my little guy agreed on about a dozen costumes when looking thru a few catalogs. i guess he figures that at 2 1/2, you can get away with wearing one everyday.

but when dw took him to a costume store, he went straight to a fireman's outfit. helmet and coat, but the boot covers were lame so i went to nordstroms and bought a real pair of boots that look kinda fireman-ish. he needed them for the upcoming bad weather anyway.

i'll have to post some pix soon.

and lol alix. i've noticed that some other moms in the park start look like a flock of flamingoes when we go there sans dw, craning their necks, and squaking a little more, often all turning in the same direction to see who's the single daddy. .

We're have Halloween Hamburger Casserole. I just added the Halloween.

The kids must not be allowed to trick or treat here since we've never had even 1. I believe the recreation centers, churches and other organizations give parties to keep the kids safe.

In my sister's area, they trick or treat down the main street and the shop keepers give out candy. The church parishoners also go to their church parking lot and have candy in their trunks and then they have a party inside.

It's a shame. We had a ball dressing up and going throughout the neighborhood. I'm sorry there are so many pitiful mean people who have spoiled this wonderful holiday.

AMEN! Its one of the true joys of childhood.


Bucky, the fireman outfit is going to cause a lot of "AWWWWW!" and you will get buttloads of candy. Ken has in the past carried a LARGE bag for each of the girls and let them carry a cute little pumpkin to collect at the doors. This however has resulted in Madeleine running down the driveway yelling "DAD! I NEED TO DUMP!"

Just spit coffee on the screen. I gotta stop doing that.

Buckytom - great mental picture of the flamingoes!

My younger boy's going as Jeff Gordon this year, along with his #24 helmet to hold the stash.


I think I'm going to go to the chinese place early today and get a bunch of fortune cookies and dip them in chocolate for dessert.

Take some photos bucky! I can't wait to see them. Aidan is a lion again this year. Which is fine with me since it still fits and we forked out $30 for it last year. Trick or treating for us tonight. We drive into town to a great neighborhood, then we'll probably go by the fire station to show dad. Since dh is working and we live in Sketchyville, I'm hoping to miss the trick or treaters here. I don't want to open my door to some weirdo in a mask. I'll come home, put the kids to sleep, then sit in the dark for a while. I'm hoping to get some thai takeout for dinner but I don't know if the odds are good. It's kind of a hassle with both the kids. Maybe I'll just rifle through Aidan's candy for dinner.
