Yea for Hallowe’en!
I love Hallowe’en…such a cool day. You get to dress up, eat enormous quantities of candy and chocolate and scare people. How great is that? This year my daughter is going as a 1920’s Newspaper Boy – specifically Denton from The Newsies. After 6 years of up to 5 costumes a year, we are finally reusing a dance costume. I am ecstatic, and so hopefully is she. My son is going as Frankenstein and is still a little concerned about the neck bolts. I have shown him the glue but he remains skeptical.
For supper I am preparing a ghoulish dinner of mashed Boo!tatoes, troll legs, eyes of newt (Thanks Debi!), with witches brew to drink and graveyard surprise as a dessert. In other words, mashed potatoes, chicken drumsticks, peas, cranberry juice with some grapes floating in it and a cup of chocolate pudding, covered in oreo cookie crumbs with some gummy worms crawling out of it and a grave marker. That however is the magic of Hallowe’en! Everything normal becomes magical and spooky. We carved three pumpkins last night and have tons of candy – let the games begin!
I wish everyone who is reading a terrific fun-filled day and evening…
