We're getting 2 for the price of 1, this year. We live in a fairly rural area, so we always go to my SIL's for Halloween. The community that she lives in voted to have Trick or Treating on Thursday, but many in her neighborhood are boycotting the decision and having it on Friday. Nevertheless, we went to her neighborhood tonight and got a little bit from the few people who are participating. Her DH is a high school football coach, so they won't be able to go tomorrow night.

Friday night, we will go with some Cub Scout friends of ours. Their whole street is boycotting the Thursday decision. They are setting up a haunted house, plan to have a bonfire, and are cooking chilli, etc.

My kids went as Batman and the Incredible Hulk. We had a crisis with the Hulk tonight. As we were getting ready to go, he sat on his plastic mask and cracked part of it around the eye. He was SO upset. But I managed to patch it up with some duct tape on the inside and a bit of craft paint and marker on the outside. He turned his nose up at it and said his mask was RUINED. HE has a flair for the dramatic. But I told him that it was not RUINED. Yes, it was no longer perfect, but it was OK. He eventually came around.

And today was my 10th Wedding ANniversary, and I did not even get to see my DH. The joys of working opposite shifts.
