Not So Wordless Wednesday: Happy Halloween



So Happy Halloween to you all!  I didn't think it would be appropriate to post a lovely picture of a lighthouse today.  So instead you get Pennywise, who I think, next to the Exorcist girl, is the scariest image ever.

It is always a bit of a bummer to celebrate this holiday mid-week.  You know things will not be good tomorrow for school.  Too much running around, too much sugar, late bed times.  For a couple of years, we had a teacher who seemed to intentionally give homework on Halloween night.  Not a popular move!  

What makes me sad is that my kids are pretty much over the whole thing.  Last year, they threw together unimaginative costumes at the 11th hour, gathered candy, then gave it all away.  At this point, I'm not even sure what we will do tonight.  Half-hearted candy gathering?  Pizza and scary movies?  Stay tuned...

Very sad that they seem over it! But they'll go back to it later, in high school or college!

By the way, your daughter might like the books I review today. Nicely Halloween scary, no sex (heh), and takes place in Florida....

I find her rather charming...reminds me of my Aunt Milly.

OK, I don't actually have an Aunt Milly....nor will I be Trick/Treating.
I should have bought a mask in Venice!!

It is rather sad when your kids outgrow Halloween isn't it? I'm sad today because Milou LOVED Halloween - she adored children and thought they were all coming to see her. She got so excited every single time a trick or treater came to our door.

I spent a lot of time with Pennywise this year. I am done with him! Happy Halloween!

My boys are at exactly the right age for Halloween. They have been to 2 parties already! I hope your kids enjoy their scary movie or whatever else they decide to do.

I've never been a big Halloween person, but I guess I have to be now. LOL Mouse will be helping me pass out candy mostly, but she may go trick or treating around our cul de sac if her dad is up for it. She had a great time at her Halloween party last Friday--even got to do a little trick or treating around the neighborhood then.

Many of the school districts in my area are having teacher in-services Thursday and Friday so kids are home from school. Smart thinking, that. Except I'm sure the parents aren't too happy. LOL

I hope you have a wonderful Halloween. I am looking forward to reading the book you are currently reading.

I think we've hit that mid stage too...after 20 minutes at our school's annual Treats in the Street last night and almost an hour on our own streets, the youngest wanted to come home bc her "feet hurt." She then spent the next 2 hours happily passing out candy to others...except for one or two freaky clowns who came to the door :/ One in particular also had a bloody sword with him...Layla picked up on the youngest's vibe and barked her head off at him. The clown called my youngest by name which means she probably goes to school with her...Oy.
Anyhoo, she slept in our bed last night :p I'm sure you know by now how much I "appreciate" Pennywise...I even saw one of those viral things on Facebook last night with Pennywise's picture...share or else he'll be in your closet kinda viral thing :/ And, No, I didn't share it :p
