The best and worst part of Halloween is eating my three year old son’s candy. And I don’t mean ‘worst’ because it’s his candy and I’m taking it for myself. Egads, man! No one should eat eight pounds of candy by themselves, especially a three year old.
Gabe didn’t last long on Halloween. He fell asleep going from one Granny’s house to the other, but that’s okay. Counting our church’s trunk-or-treat, and a turn around the local businesses with Mother’s Day Out (the daycare at the local Methodist church, not the rock band), it was his third time trick-or-treating. He did wake up after a little while, and everyone got to see him in his costume, he was very cute, and it was lots of fun.
Afterwards, I met my friend’s Patterson and Brian at Brian’s house for some Halloween movie watching. Brian hung a cloth off his back patio, set up a projector and some speakers, and we sat in lawn chairs watching a movie (and freezing, but it was fun and worth it). We watched The Changeling (George C. Scott not Angelina Jolie). It’s a great little haunted house movie, and an even better venue for movie watching. Plans were made for future movie themes.
It was a good holiday for the Wisdom family. I hope it was for you too.
Now the countdown is on for turkey and pie.
