My kids were so excited to wear their costumes, they got up early just to put them on. By 9:00 some of them had already been in costume ready to go for 2 hours!

John hasn’t quite gotten the concept of the whole Daylight savings time, so he just comes in my bed “earlier” than before. Today I looked at the clock and it was 5:00 when he crawled in and started kicking me and grabbing my hair. While I treasure our “special together time”, I just wish we could start at a decent hour–like 7:00. He does go back to sleep, about 5 minutes before I need to get up to help the other kids get ready. Oh well.

So today I’ll be going to John’s preschool party, take some pictures, then go to Jenna’s Kindergarted party where I will be manning the “pin the nose on the Jack-o-lantern” game. I may or may not dress up in a clown costume. I have one hour to get all my noses and blindfolds ready and get myself into costume.

After school today, we’ll go to Ryan’s office and trick or treat cubicle to cubicle. It’s a lot faster and warmer way to get boatloads of candy. Ryan forgot our candy contribution–it’s still sitting among the family fallout on what I think is still the kitchen counter. I haven’t seen it in a while, so I’m not exactly sure. I’ll get to that…soonish.

And then we’ll do the traditional neighborhood begging for candy from the neighbors–how fun!

I hope you all enjoy your Halloween and we’ll have lots more pictures to share soon.
