This is the loot Cody came home with after a long night of trick or treating with his brother and Husband. Do you see three things that are not like the others?
I had spend the entire day in bed feeling like crap (sore throat, weak, general all over blah (ok, I did get up only once to use the bathroom and track down a ginger ale)).
Apparently after handing out candy at our house (the boys dressed in costume and husband projecting scary ghost images on the outside of our house along with spooky music and our firepot blazing), they went for what Husband thought would be a quick spin around the block to collect some candy.
They were gone for hours.
They hit some houses. Got some candy. The typical T or T routine. Then they stumbled into a mini party with kids playing and adults hanging out eating and drinking. They stayed for a time. Then they moved on to another part of the neighborhood. They found another party. More kids playing – sword fights – and more adult libations – Four Peaks Beer. They stayed and played.
And so it was that while I slept the day and night away, Husband and the boys partied into the night. They made friends and connections in our neighborhood and had some treats as well.
Oh, and here is the answer key for those of you who need it.
For those of you who celebrated Halloween, I hope you had safe and fun tricks, tasty treats and had the chance to make some great new memories.
Now it is back to bed for me.
