Well, Scotty will (I'm not.) And it just begins a full week of celebrating Halloween.
(For the record, I'm totally understanding why people invented holidays; it's really fun for your kids! [I am sure this is the only reason why holidays exist.] I am so looking forward to all of this dressing up, event-worthy activity. Pre-kids, it was always like, "Well, yeah, we should dress up...but let's not. Let's just go buy a pumpkin." Now, I've been planning and thinking about Halloween since August. And then right around the corner is Thanksgiving! And then Christmas! Holiday bonanza! I can barely wrap my mind around paper turkey-hand-cut-outs and now you're telling me I have to trim a tree?)
Anyways...last week at music class, the teacher said the kids can come in their costumes for today's lesson. Sweet! Break out the baby vampire costume six days early. The weather is cooperating and let's just hope Scotty does too. I'll try to post pictures of it later.
Later this week, at preschool (more on that later), a friend is hosting yet another kiddie Halloween party. On Saturday, Brian and I will be attending an adults-only Halloween party (read: it starts after 7pm) and I have my Sookie Stackhouse costume ready to go (and Brian's 'Fellowship of the Sun' T-shirt is clean and on a hanger). On the actual day of Halloween, we are planning to go to an outdoor mall where they have trick-or-treating for the kids and fun activities (the same site of the Easter Day Egg Hunt Massacre). After that, we'll race home for Brian and the Bear do a little trick-or-treating in our new neighborhood (Scotty is going to be so excited to push all of these doorbells) while I man our house.
Then...we'll hang up his little black tux with the red collar and cape. For good. It's tough to be a baby vampire, no? So many social engagements.
