Happy Halloween

Did you know that Halloween is the 2nd largest consumer holiday? Topping out at about 6 billion dollars? That, my friends, is a lot of treats!

We have, in fact, been celebrating for over a week... my camera is loaded with images of Eva at various festivities and in various costumes... she has, at last count, 4. Do you think 4 costumes is too much? Good, neither do I.

In the meantime, if you really want to be scared out of your pants... check out my post on today's Mamarazzi... if it doesn't put fear in your heart... well, you're a braver soul than I.

Don't forget... the poetry contest runs for another day or so and I am thrilled with the entries so far... you people are clever!

Happy Halloween everyone... don't eat any razor blade apples and send all Mounds Bars my way (they are coconut, so technically, a fruit...)

4 costumes? Wow, you're putting my last minute monster costume to shame. I had NO IDEA how much in advance some of you crazy moms plan for this holiday. Next year, well, I'm starting to plan for that one tomorrow.

Oh, and by crazy I mean totally on top of things. :)

4 is definitely not too much...but I may not be the person to ask.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

4 costumes is the perfect amount!! Thankfully, I got away with only 2 this year for Katie, but I have a feeling that will change next year! :)

Happy Halloween!

Four costumes is just right for a girl like Eva - she is quite the fashion maven! I love your Mamarazzi stuff, BTW, you are one funny woman!!!

I'll trade you all my nasty Mounds and Almond Joy for anything with the words Butterfinger in it. Deal?

Nah, 4 isn't too many. That's one for a party, one for school, one to trick or treat in and one to???? Ok, maybe you have one extra, but that's all good.

Happy Halloween! Post some photos of the kids in their costumes.

Oh, The Joys said...

I must beware the treats lest The Lady Flabina return.

Seth had two costumes. But I can see the need for four. Plus, she can play dress up with them later on!

Mounds bars count in the diet right, they have a nut in them and nuts are good for you!! Pictures of your angel? With four costumes you really could show us a little!!;0)

I just entered my poem. You know how I love last minute stuff.

Marco? Is this thing on? 4 costumes? Go Big or Go Home as i say. And just exactly how did you take a pic of your 3 beautiful children and get it to look like you took it in 1974 with a faded color look?

Now, back to exciting earnings calls....
