Can you believe it’s the end of October already? Me neither…
Thanks to my friends at Dizguise.com, I had the kid’s costumes back in August, so I haven’t thought much about Halloween until this weekend. We usually head down to Rehoboth Beach for the Sea Witch Festival, but no thanks to a Nor ‘Easter we ended up staying home this year. Boo!
Instead of costume parades, early trick or treating, games and Halloween fun we stayed indoors while the Snowtober storm blew past dropping a ton of cold rain, sleet and even a little snow. Thankfully, we had a little more than a coating of ice Sunday morning which quickly melted with the sun’s assistance.
Although I did have a small issue when I took the dog out Sunday morning and I didn’t realize it was icy. Before I could comprehend that the deck was frozen, the dog was off and running down the stairs. Because I had not had my coffee yet and my brain was not fully functioning, I did not let go of the leash and my 18lb dog pulled me across the slippery surface, down three stairs and into a giant pot of lavender which I broke with my legs.
Fortunately, I stayed on my feet until the bottom of the steps, so when I crashed into the pot and kicked it over, I wasn’t hurt. Although, I did pull a muscle in my ass on the way down. Anyway, yesterday I remembered to get the Halloween candy too, but the kids started bugging me about my costume.
Last year I dressed as a witch, and walked the kids around the neighborhood while my husband distributed candy. This year we’ll switch and I get to give out candy so I didn’t think much about a costume. My kids have been insisting that I participate too as we have several events coming up (like a parade through town this afternoon), and I’m trying to think of a last minute costume.
Do I go as a witch again? Or maybe I try to pull something together from stuff I have around the house?
I could go as …

I never have been very creative, especially at the last minute, so I may just disappoint the kids and give out candy as my usual self:
This was actually scary. No, not the Mario costume, but the fact that when I uploaded this photograph to Facebook last Friday after Jake’s preschool Halloween party, that Facebook still recognized me and automatically tagged my face despite the giant black mustache. Apparently, I should be more worried about waxing my usual mustache and not a last minute costume this year.
Hope you all have a fabulous Halloween! Be safe, have fun, and happy “candy checking.” I can barely wait to make sure my kid’s candy is “safe” for them to eat!
