All Hallows’ Eve

2014 November 1

Rain on Halloween? We’ve got sweaters, puddle stompers, and grandparents with umbrellas. The squirrels ate all of our pumpkins this  year,  but, as it turns out, you can buy pumpkins for 1/2 price on Oct. 30, so we got a hatchback trunk full for about $11. Hooray! Nora likes to change her clothes about 15 times a day, and she must always do it by herself, so it was a small miracle that she got dressed and let me put a sweater over her costume. I can remember being super pissed about coats over costumes when I was a kid, so I thought it might be payback time.

Sometimes, like when I look at pictures like this one,  I’m reminded of the bigness of having a family. Even though I spend every day with them, I’m still kind of surprised that they’re mine, that this is our little family.  They’ll turn into adults, and they might look at this picture and not really remember it but know that it’s this tiny little part of their lives. I guess sometimes it just shocks me — the bigness of their whole lives and that things like this are a part of it.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees. Candy.

More sweetness.

Mischief managed.
