I guess I’d have to consider today a success. Halloween has never been my favorite school holiday to celebrate. The kids are so excited it is hard to get much accomplished, but today was a relatively smooth day. It was followed by the town parade which brings out thousands of people. The costumes this year were terrific. I had been asked to take photos for the local website The Village Green, and there were so many great ones to choose from.
Every year since I can remember, Drew has wanted to win a prize and this year, he did! He was so excited. His Play Doh costume was a hit! After the parade, he went trick or treating with a group of friends and got one of the biggest bags of candy he has ever collected. I don’t even know what we are going to do with all of it. I told him tomorrow we could sort it out and give away the stuff we aren’t going to eat. With four candy lovers in our family, (who all enjoy different kinds) there might not be much to give away! I might have to start looking for recipes that incorporate a lot of candy and stock up on toothpaste! Dentists must love this time of year!!
