No lie, people. No lie.
We decked out the house (well, the kitchen, anyway) in honor of the holiday:
|We don't get to use these place mats much|
Both Theo and Susie carved jack-o'-lanterns this year. Susie was thrilled she wasn't the only one doing it. It's hard being the youngest (I mean, aside from the fact that she's spoiled as heck).
|A witch and a cat - we're very original|
The friends we invited over (their daughter went trick-or-treating with Susie) brought me GORGEOUS flowers.
|Blood roses - perfect for Halloween!|
And I am so buzzed on Almond Joys and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, I can hardly see straight.
|So. Much. Candy.|

In non-Halloween news, my part-time editing job has been keeping me busy, because it's college application time and apparently everyone's kids but mine pay to have their college essays professionally edited. I've always railed against the whole college application brouhaha (12 or more applications? REALLY?) and the way that upper middle class students have an edge in the process, but now that I'm profiting off that? Hey, it's totally cool.
I got to use the word "brouhaha." That makes me happy. That, and approximately gazillion Almond Joys. Excuse me, I'm going to go see if any are left...
