If you have wondered why I've not talked about Halloween too much this year, it isn't b/c I've been kidnapped by aliens! We have just been really busy!
A couple weeks ago we had over 75 people over at our house for Halloween Kick Off party. It was great fun. We had neighbors, friends, church friends, etc. My favorite was seeing everyone have such a great time. This party was so busy that we forgot to take pictures until clean up time (but some friends gave us some busy shots)! Next year I'll share more. I actually cooked though! Pictured below is my Spinach Artichoke pie.
So we also have attended not one but 2 different corn mazes/pumpkin patches!
The first was with my friend Michelle and her son Tres. We had such a great time but the twins got so tired so quickly that we never did a lot. So Chris and I brought Harmon back later that night along with my brother. We got there at dusk and it was pitch black by the time we did the maze. Thank Heaven's for IPhones, b/c otherwise we might have had to spend the night down there.
Today was extra corn maze fun. Miriam our nanny went (but it was NOT considered a Halloween b/c she doesn't do Holidays so rather it is about the fall season) and so did our Family Services Coordinator. We went for a twin event and it was so much fun :)
So the fun isn't done. Assuming I'm back to feeling better (I've been pretty sick but I just keep pushing myself b/c Halloween only comes once a year and I'll always have health challenges), tomorrow we have Spooktacular. The next week we have Trunk or Treat, Boo at the Zoo, and 2 Halloween parties. On Halloween we have Tricks or Treats and a final Halloween party.
It is great wonderful month for us. Miriam says we celebrate Halloween like most people celebrate Christmas. Chris disagrees, he thinks we celebrate Halloween like most people celebrate Halloween, Christmas and Easter is all in one month :p I think he is right but it is the best time of the year! I think that is why my spouse loves Thanksgiving so much! He can just rest and eat :)
