Our day has been good enough so far, despite the fact that Evan was DEVASTATED that I missed his AM kindergarten parade even though there was NO note sent home (I confirmed with tons of other parents that also didn't know about it) but he has since gotten over it and is currently playing with his new mummy on a parachute and spooky tattoos from his goody bag (no candy or treats, whatsoever allowed in goody bags anymore. Bummer, man.)

We will be a pirate (me), Dracula (Pat), 2 knights and Minnie Mouse. I know - spooky family.

Here's hoping that the rain holds off, the wind calms down, and everyone is safe and has a great time. Here's to hoping that they get some Snickers bars that they'll share with me, no hard ball candy (freaks me out) and that I'm able to sneakily pitch half of it by next week.
