Hi Friends! Did you have a good Halloween?
We are all a bit pooped from an overly social weekend. Too much socializing + introverts like us = eventual melt down.
Our festivities included:
Going to a total of 8 stores in search of SOLD OUT pumpkins. Who knew that this even happens? I finally gave up and bought an acorn squash. So lame.
Having our annual Halloween dinner. It was a bit low key this year since I was exhausted from the great pumpkin search.
The menu highlights were the Spider (olives) and Jack O’Lantern pizzas,
And Dracula’s Dentures cookies, which ended up looking more like Jokey Chattering Teeth instead.
There was also some “magical potion” to drink. It was fizzy and bloody and made curious popping noises. Between you and me, it was seltzer, black cherry kool aid, and pop rocks.
We had a little visitor for the weekend. Holly!
She did not appreciate having to wear a costume and hid under the table, but it was just too cute to take off.
I did not get a single photo of the boys before we were off to trick or treat and various events. This was officially the year of bad planning.
On Sunday, we had family over for yet another birthday dinner. Birthdays go on forever around here. This was the grand finale!
By the time everyone left, I was ready to collapse somewhere alone with my stitching. Charlie had other ideas though.
He was almost too cute to move, but even a cute cat can’t keep a woman away from her stitch-a-long. Deadlines, People!
I finished Day 2.
And got ambitious with Day 3. This is as far as I got before giving up and going to bed.
Sometimes you just have to quit while you’re ahead.
