So today is the big day. Halloween. I’ve been very excited about Halloween this year especially because we decided to make my son’s costume – I am no seamstress and had never thought we’d be that family until my husband learned he is ridiculously good with a sewing machine – apparently it’s all numbers and equations in his mind but his stuff – it comes out good. He can knit, too. And bake bread. I know. Are you done giggling? Point is, my son’s costume is amazing and looks like it could be store bought in my humble opinion. Pictures soon I promise. So here’s the itinerary for my son’s third Halloween, in which he will make his debut as The Man In The Yellow Hat:
I’ll be Professor Wiseman thanks to my father’s wife’s mother who got me hooked up with a fancy shmancy lab coat, which is pretty much the only part of my costume and probably nobody will get it, but just trust me when I say, Professor Wiseman, she rocks. It’s gonna be awesome. Or legen…dary. You know, whatev. Oh right, itinerary:
3:30pm: Arrive at hubby’s place of business to steal him away, using cute kid in costume as a distraction for his bosses.
4:30pm: Arrive at the in-laws to show off said cute kid and take a quick walk of the neighborhood, because it’s one of those weird neighborhoods where all the neighbors know you and care and want to see you.
5pm: Find dinner? Wendys?
5:30pm: Go to my dad’s house to show off cute kid AGAIN and rest our laurels for 2.5 seconds.
6:30pm: Arrive in ye old town of Rutland for Main Trick or Treating Event. Visit one aunt, one grandmother and one great aunt while in town.
7:30pm: Head to Bestie’s (mom of SB) new apartment for a par-tay of sorts, sort candy, steal any inappropriate candy and drink soda and eat junk food.
?pm: Arrive home too late with cranky sugar high toddler and then tell him he has to go to bed and can’t wear his costume. Endure screaming and shrieking for far too long until we all pass out.
So, anyway let’s get down to business shall we? You know, Aloha Friday business.
This week my question for you is:
Do you love or loathe Halloween? What are your plans for tonight?
