J, A, B
All week I've been wondering where my Halloween spirit is. I love decorating and last year looked forward to dressing up the kids like crazy. This year? I barely stuck some pumpkins on the front step. As Daddy struggled to get J in to his Giraffe costume (which every other day of the week J asks to be put into but on this night is was like dressing him in live stinging bees) I thought, why are we doing this? It's really for the grown ups. Not the kids at this age. So why do we do this?
Well I'm glad we did. Our neighborhood was in great form. We finally have people participating in the holidays and the street was full of friends and friendly faces. The kids did great and I had fun. And I'm the most important one, right? I guess I had a happy Halloween after all.
