Halloween

So tomorrow is All Hallows' Eve. What I consider to be the most misunderstood holiday EVER!! Okay so if you don't know, I don't particularly like Halloween. If you are interested in what the holiday started out to be check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween. Anyway, I suppose when I have kids, I will give in to the pressure and dress them up and take them trick-or-treating but it doesn't mean I have to like it!! If only the kids didn't look so darn cute in their costumes! My sister-in-law started asking my niece several weeks ago whether she wanted to be a superhero or a witch. For 2 or 3 weeks she was walking around saying she was going to be "super Priya" (picture that being said in a 3 year old's voice) however, when her mom was getting ready to go get the material to make the costume, she decided that she wanted to be a princess. Mom told her she could be either a witch or a superhero and those were her two choices so...she is going to be a witch. She is not entirely happy about it since she won't get to be the same witch she was last year but she will get over it.

I however will be continuing my tradition of disconnecting my doorbell and hiding in the family room so I don't have to give out candy. This year it will just be me at home so it will make it extra hard to wrangle the dogs should I feel inspired to actually give out candy (don't worry, i won't). I have already told Aaron and Marjanne if they are bringing Priya over call first so I know they are coming. Maybe next year I will have to work out a secret knock so I know it is someone I want to answer the door for. Would that be to Gadianton Robberish?
