I'm starting to get excited about Halloween the same as when I was a kid. You know how they say that being a parent gives you a second childhood? It's SO true! I've missed these simple things like costumes, swings at the playground, spinning around and getting dizzy, singing "Popcorn Popping" with all the signs... having a kid really forces you to appreciate mundane things like an airplane whooshing loudly by, or hugs, or even the swirly background effects of Windows Media Player. Despite her inability to express herself with words, she does a pretty amazing job at expressing her THRILL with all things new or familiar.

With a simple exclamation of "OH!"

I agree, kiddo, the moon is fantastic!

Am I ADD-ing here? Sorry. Halloween. Right.

Let me give you some of the excitement of our Halloween. I found this hilarious idea today:

"I grew up in a college town, and one Halloween our doorbell rang and we opened the door expecting to see trickortreater—but what was in front of our open door—was another door! Like, a full-on wooden door, that had a sign that said “Please knock.” So we did, and the door swung open to reveal a bunch of college dudes dressed as really old grandmothers, curlers in their hair, etc, who proceeded to coo over our “costumes” and tell us we were “such cute trick or treaters!” One even pinched my cheek. Then THEY gave US candy, closed their door, picked it up and walked to the next house."

Tomorrow: More pictures & some pumpkin carving ideas! Yay!
