Wesley has been home because she has some days off from school. She talked me into getting out the Halloween decorationsf. I wasn't going to..... but I love all things pumpkin and she was home unexpectedly, so we drug out the orange and black box of Halloween stuff.
We used to have the biggest Halloween party when she was younger, it got bigger every year and I spoiled her terribly for anything else going on for Halloween. Last year was the first year we were not together on Halloween since she was born. She had to crew on a set and I had a pity party, missing her. I had planned much of the same this year since Gerry left Saturday for the coast and I had no idea when he would be home, but Wes ended up here and so we have decorated, we went and bought pumpkins from a little old farmer dude, we watched vampire movies and ate carrot cake muffins with pumpkin spice lattes and snuggled under down blankets while the storm brewed out there.
I have had some of these things since she was a little girl and I love them, love Halloween. I'm so glad she talked me into getting in the spirit of the holiday (so to speak, haha!)
These are our place mats for Halloween, many a spooky meal has been eaten on these things. I am now in the Halloween mood and Sandy has moved on up the coast so we may just be out on Franklin St, in Chapel Hill again this year for the wild and crazy party they have. Thanks Wes, for still wanting a Halloween!!
Meanwhile, Gerry has been off chasing "Superstorm Sandy" and getting the most play I think I have ever seen. If you have a news start up page on your computer, you probably saw one of his photos. This one just popped up on my screen from National Geographic. Wish I could post his photos here, but I can't so click the link if you are interested :)
Hope all of you in the path of this bizarre storm are safe and sound
