TSS: It’s the Month of Halloween!
My husband and I have always been rather decidedly un-holiday people. We like to get together with family and such but we’re not really into the whole flashiness of any of the major festivals. For some reason, this year, Halloween started early in our house. On the first school day of October, my son and I ended up coming across Dunkin Donuts’ Halloween sprinkles which sparked my son’s “It’s The Month Of Halloween” campaign. This, along with presents from my parents (a dragon costume, ghost stickers and other assorted spooky silliness) and the general Atlanta obsession with all things haunted and harvested (I’m talking crops, people, not organs), has made the impending holiday a rather exciting time for the whole household.
Now, of course, this is one of our favorite Halloweens ever, since our little family of six is finally complete. Mom, Dad, Kai, Gavin, Donnie and Teddy. My Halloween costume really should be a queen as I’m the matriarch of my castle of boys, at this point. And no, before you ask, we are not trying for a girl, thank you.
Ah, but back to Halloween. As I said, I’m not a big fan of holidays, in general, and spooky stuff sends me running really quickly in a very far, different direction. I think I’ve mentioned this, a few times, lately, but I feel like I’m embracing the spook a bit better, this year. I don’t know if it’s because our given due date for Gavin was originally the 30th or if it’s because Kai’s energy is just so catching. I have signed up and almost completed the R.I.P. challenge which it’s taken me two years to even go near. And hey, I’m enjoying myself! I actually like this stuff. Of course, I’ve been reading mysteries and magic books (like the seriously fabulous Night Circus, oh dear god can’t wait for this review to go up) but still, I think that’s a pretty good step in the right direction.
I have to stop, now, or I’m going to leak over in my excitement and start talking about The Circus which I’m so head over heels in love with that it’s probably not very healthy! I can’t post my review until sometime on Wednesday because I have other
boring more fun things to post about before then. Oh, but it really is just so fabulous. Enough! I shall leave you pictures.
