Halloween 2017

It's all for the kids. Yeah, that's it. We're dressing up for them. I take no joy whatsoever at wearing a costume and having a different identity for a few hours. I quietly roll my eyes and sigh, "I guess I'll wear a themed costume that makes our entire family into a fabulous, amazing, matching set of characters from a comic book." Big sigh. 

 I would also like to take a moment to address our penchant for the dark side. Last year there was a Darth Vader and Darth Maul and witch costume happening. Listen, they are darling angels the other 364 days of the year. They can have a walk with their shadow shelves for a hot minute. If you can't do it on Halloween, then when? We cooked dinner in a pumpkin, went door to door for treats and everyone paid their required mom tax at the end of the night. My little Batman was the star of the night putting treats into the candy bowls of the houes we knocked on. It made my night. Cheers to family themes forever and forever.
