Keep your fingers crossed [Oct. 30th, 2005|10:29 pm]

I finished Middle Daughter's costume with half an hour to spare. We carved the pumpkins without incident, as long as you don't count the pumpkin-seed fight. The Boy told me what kind of eyes, nose, and mouth he wanted on his. When it was done and we set it out on the front porch and lit it, I said "Look at your jack-o-lantern" and he replied "I can't look at it - it's too scary!"

We're all set for the holiday, and apparently so are the thunderstorms that are moving in tomorrow evening. They're scheduled to hit right about the time we would be trick-or-treating.

Keep your fingers crossed for us. The Boy will be crushed if it rains. This is the first year he really "gets" it, and has been looking forward to being spiderman and trick-or-treating for weeks now. Aside from occasional musings on smoke alarms and riding the Metro Train, it's all he's talked about for days.

That is just too precious.

We did all of our decorating last night and I got my daughter's costume last weekend. She is going to be a black cat. I've never really had a problem with the whole costume thingy, except the guilt that I don't make my daughter's costumes like my mom did when I was a kid and I just go out and buy them for her.

Anyway, I have this problem at my house. Apparently, when I just muse on some idea out loud, everyone takes me up on it, like the whole "streaking" thing. Well, I ran across a mini disco ball that she had gotten from Chuck E Cheese last year. I mused, "hmmm? This might be cool to put in the pumkin." Well, it is now in the pumpkin.

I was really trying to go for a more elegant look with the decorating this year. I think I've managed to completely destroy the concept of elegant. I have lights and spider webbing, and a disco ball in a pumpkin. *sigh* I had managed to get slightly above cheezy, but the disco ball put it squarely in that category.

Have a Happy Halloween!!
