Happy Halloween!

Although it's not my favorite holiday, I do enjoy seeing the kids dressed up and our Kindergarten class today had quite a few cute costumes! My favorite had to be the little boy dressed in a hammerhead shark costume. His mom had made it and the headpiece was just amazing! It was a fun day in Kindergarten. :o)

Tonight will be a great night for trick or treating...it's clear with a light breeze and it's about 70 degrees outside. Very unusual for this time of year! I don't have to follow the trick or treaters any more...as my 12 year old told me, "Mom, if you take me out trick or treating, I will have NO friends!" So, I can stay home and watch the parade of pirates, monsters and goblins.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Halloween!

It can be a lot of fun to see the costumes, unfortunately its too cold here and everyone will have their jackets and boots on (-9C with 15 cm of snow)

We used to live in Bernardsville, and then in Basking Ridge. It was that balmy only once on Halloween. How nice for the children!

I know what you mean - it was a big heart in mouth moment for me last night to allow DS and DD2 aged almost 11 and 9 1/2 out unaccompanied with two of DS's 10 year old friends - you have to let go and allow them to grow up but it is so hard :o)

Since we moved out to the country, all we get are the four little bits that live next door. I really miss seeing all the little gremlins come by!
