Collin was with his Daddy in Las Vegas for Halloween this year. Aiden was with his Mommy. The girls were with their Mama. So it was just J & I all by ourselves. It was obvious we were missing our kids because the majority of the evening we kept looking at our friends’ Facebook posts & exclaiming, “Oh look at so & so’s kids! They went as a pirate & Tinkerbell! How cute!”
We were determined to get our Halloween on, even sans kids. So I whipped up a batch of beef stew while J started gutting our pumpkins. I also decided to try my hand at two-ingredient pumpkin muffins. We each carved a pumpkin after dinner. So what if they didn’t get displayed on our porch until 7PM? We watched Young Frankenstein (my first time) while we roasted the pumpkin seeds. It was a quiet evening.
My sister sent me an awesome photo of my nephew, Everett, dressed up as Alfalfa. That was the best costume I saw of the night. Well, him & I saw a Felix Baumgartner costume, which ruled. Collin’s Daddy also sent me some awesome pictures of Collin with his cousins. He was the cutest Spiderman in the whole wide world.
I got a couple of videos this morning, too. Collin was a dancing fool last night apparently. And in the best video, he tels his Daddy, “Stop! Keep walking!” Kid wanted that candy.
