This, our first day of sunshine and no rain in about a billion years, meant that some outside maintenance needed to happen - a good portion of that maintenance requiring access to this little pumpkin's room. So she was kicked out and forced to nap in the kitchen amidst the pumpkin cooking, ginger grating, crust making madness that was our pre-Halloween activity. The pies were our admission to a very fun gathering of trick-or-treaters - that, and a cute baby in a hot dog costume. Pics of the costumes tomorrow. Time to take advantage of daylight savings time. And just in time... the whole house slept until NINE O'CLOCK a.m. this morning, and while absolutely delightful on all fronts for a Saturday morning, this household sleepiness has not been good for the whole getting-to-school-and-work-on-time bunch - at least not to work on time with hair brushed and some sort of obvious grooming having taken place.
But still, NINE O'CLOCK, and with two children in the house. That's what I like to call "The First Gift of Halloween". Hope yours was spooktacular.
