We spent the evening trick-or-treating in our neighborhood, and are now the proud owners of between 10 and 15 pounds of candy. Ew. (Don't get me wrong, I really kind of love candy...but that MUCH candy is insane. And I don't think my kids scored any Coconut M&Ms. Which I would GLADLY eat ten pounds of. Because a dear sweet friend just gave me some and I can't.stop.thinking. about them. They are THAT good. I think I need to blog a homage to these coco-nutty delights.)
I love going door to door around here. There are leaves EVERYwhere, and lots of people are out and about with their coffee and beer wishing each other a Happy Halloween. So very festive. Everyone gets into it, but it's not overly crowded. Love it.
After much procuring of candy, we headed home and put on pjs to watch It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. The kids had a great time last night and it was, as always, downright hilarious for Kevin and I to watch them run from house to house. It is painfully evident though that the kids don't need us along. At all. We go for safety's sake, but they are more than capable of running this operation themselves. Really. We may as well have not even been there
Today though it's back to the usual grind: homeschooling and doing things around the house. In spite of my cold we have somehow already done math, history, and literature. Yay!
I hope you too had a fun and memorable day yesterday. It's November now and while I have no clue what happened to October, I know that it was a lot of fun.
