Jacob's costume turned out better than expected. He was the cherry bomb from Plants vs. Zombies.

Jacob said, 'You are the coolest mom ever!" so I guess I succeeded at my task.
Last night, we walked the three blocks to Ethan's American Legion hall for a not-so-spooky haunted house, games and treats.
Jacob said I had to dress up too.

After we spent probably a half hour at the Legion hall, we went home and waited to hand out candy.
We decorated my office as scary as possible and turned on the portable heater to stay warm.
We carved pumpkins in the afternoon and put them out to look nice and spooky.

We might have more fun tonight, probably handing out candy.
I'll be lighting the jack-o-lanterns until they curl up and look gross.
I'll be keeping my office creepy for a while too, perhaps for a little inspiration.

In the mean time, Happy Halloween!
Don't be afraid to enjoy yourselves today.
It's a waste if you don't. I was a zombie yesterday.
Today, I'm a mysterious creepy lady.
I hat the had from a few years ago and
just decided that's enough of a costume with makeup.
