Wordful Wednesday: Halloween

We started Halloween off right this year with my cousin April's second annual holiday
bash!  Being an elementary school teacher makes my beautiful cousin the hostess with
the mostest as she knows exactly how to entertain our kids and give them a night
to remember forever.  She turned her home into a spooktacular venue and served the
most delicious treats.  We feasted on chili and more candy than I care to admit, jumped
in the Spiderman jumper, baked pumpkin cookies, and did the Monster Mash on the
back porch.  A few things to remember from all the ghost and goblin fun:
1.  Brees hates all things Halloween and becomes a Stage IV Clinger at the sight of
anything  jack'o'lantern related.  I was not aware of her extreme vampire/Spiderman/orange lights/skeleton/pretty much anything else you can think
of aversion until we showed up at the party and she lost her mind.  The poor little love
spent the ENTIRE party in my arms with her thumb in her mouth and her legs
wrapped around me in a vice grip.  No matter how much we bribed her with cookies
and other goodies (what responsible moms we are), she would not budge.  Treat or
treating should be a BLAST this year!
2.  If either of my children scores some M&Ms Candy Corn White Chocolate Candies
this year in their Halloween baskets, no promises can be made on whether or not
said candies shall be present in the morning.  Mama needs a little treat now and then,
3.  When your 8 year old decides to steal your makeup to vamp up her costume, make
sure she isn't using your long last red lip stain.  On her cheeks because she thought it
was blush. Ever.
Happy Halloween!!!
