Last night was a sugar coated success. It registered somewhere between a 9.5 and a 10 on the Richter Scale of fantastic fabulocity. Sass and his BFF cleaned up the candy like a pair of lions at a visually impaired Impala conference. After costumes had been peeled off and loot dumped into piles on the carpet to be simultaneously marveled over and devoured, he twitched on the couch for an hour, demanding “Halloween TV” and then lapsed into a deep sleep that was part diabetic coma and part exhausted swoon. It was adorable. Sprinks spent the evening sashaying around the house in her tutu while being admired by Grandma and screaming in terror at all the masked creatures that came to our door. So glad she stayed with Grandma. Masks are really not her thing. Pretty purple tutus, on the other hand, ARE…
I also consider it a complete success because nobody earned stitches running up and down some VERY steep driveways in the dark and nobody puked. Gold stars to everyone for no urps! We also got to hang out with some pretty awesome parents and have ADULT TALKING THINGS! You know, conversations? Whoa….
The Trick or Treaters were faboo, too. We actually had a boy come to the door wearing an iridescent turban and red long johns who sang the entire “Trick or Treat! Smell my feet!” song. Both verses. He got free rein on the treat bowl for that one. We also had the 18 year old girl, dressed as an “Indian Club Princess” and hiding a lit cigarette behind her back who showed up around 9:30. She said “Trick or Treat” and smiled sweetly while her buddies giggled from the car. She got 2 handfuls for balls alone. Way to take that dare and get some chocolate, sweetheart.
And now it’s time to batten down for Thanksgiving while pretending that I won’t actually eat ALL of the untouched Sam’s-sized bag of candy left over from last night. I over estimated… badly (or goodly depending on how you look at it). Looks like I'll be breaking out the stretch pants a little early this year…..
Now… I want to see your Halloween costumes! Send me pictures of your wigglers (and fam or you!) all dressed up and I'll post them on my “Cuteness” page and link it back to you (don’t forget to include the page you want me to link to!). Email me HERE or post them in my comments. I can't wait to see them!
