Oh, Halloween, thank you for bringing my children such fun, creativity and excitement. We will see you next year, armed again with decorations and ideas (indeed they are already planning next year’s costumes). Thank goodness this craziness only comes once a year! Now we have a quiet, rainy lull going on, with dark nights, indoor time, and thoughts of Christmas. The kids are already begging me to bring down the Christmas decorations, but this mama needs a rest!
