It was such a successful shopping trip, or much-needed getaway time for me, because I got two new sets of measuring spoons (one green, one red) that I keep forgetting to get only to remember each time I am in the middle of baking something. Bath bubbles, winter gloves, vanilla flavor coffee syrup, you know, the important necessities. The Halloween aisle was being transformed before my eyes by many red-shirted Target elves- placing ornaments and Santas and snowmen on shelves as bright orange jack-o-lanterns were marked red for clearance.
Today is Halloween, and I've dodged the topic long enough. Do we celebrate it? Notsomuch, but tonight the boys will dress up (two pirates and a frog) and we'll Trunk or Treat at a church. The boys are really looking forward to it, and so am I. No need to buy costumes around here as we have a mecca of fun dress-up outfits for pretending- so it's nice to come up with something we have on hand. I'm hoping for some KitKats, but I can't have chocolate anyway. I'll probably end up with the gum.
