We survived the Hell Month of September amazingly. Now we're heading into the three month span of Hallowthanksmas. This season should be easier since there will only be the three of us as we've disowned the rest of the family. (see previous entries)
I've already started putting up the Halloween decor and have a witchy sign on my door that says 'Witches Welcome'. The sign on our bedroom door reads 'The Witch is In'. That one typically stays up year round though.
I'm trying to get the munchkin to dress up for Halloween, but no dice so far. He's only dressed up twice in 7 years. He was a 'biker baby' for his first Halloween and then 3 years ago he was Woody from Toy Story.
Halloween is also my husband, Robert's, birthday. When I first met him I made him show me his driver's license because I didn't believe him when he told me he was 42 (I was 31 and thought he was only about 3 or 4 years older then me). So I look at it, first note that he only lived at the time about 4 miles from my mom's house and then secondly at his birthdate.
"You're a Halloweenie baby? You are now my new best friend!"
So Halloween, has always had a special meaning for us, other than the typical stuff. I definitely won't complain, and little did I know then when I first uttered those words 'you are now my new best friend', how true they would end up becoming.
