In case you missed it, this weekend was Halloween weekend!
We celebrated with a complete pumpkin overload and watching by our favorite Halloween movies (aka movies that are not scary like Hocus Pocus, Casper, and Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin).
Saturday morning we had pumpkin waffles with homemade pumpkin spice lattes.
Sunday afternoon we took a break from all the orange and went to see The Blue Man Group perform. For the most part, it was a pretty impressive show that included a rock concert, a nightclub, a variety show, and some good old fashioned paint splashing percussion. Works of art were created.
Sunday evening we carved our pumpkins while watching Monster House (another Halloween classic). Aaron pulled out the jigsaw (somewhere in this house exists actual pumpkin carving tools, but power tools are more fun). I printed off a template and spent too many hours carving multiple tiny holes into a pirate.
Giuseppe sadly did not win the Pet-a-Palooza contest (thanks for voting!), but he still enjoyed himself today as a moo cow. And by enjoyed I mean he tried to get that costume off anyway he could. I thought I would take him to the office to show him off and he proceeded to pee on my office carpet in front of the CEO. I don’t think he will be going back to work with me for a while. At least it was in my office and not in the middle of the hallway or something…
Now we are sitting here with a bowl full of candy and underappreciated jack-o-lanterns because we live in a make-shift retirement community where kids don’t exist. At least I have an excuse to eat lots of chocolate for the next few days (or next 1 day…).
Tomorrow I feel that it will be socially acceptable to sing Christmas songs and watch Christmas movies. Tonight, I will watch Hocus Pocus on the Family Channel for the 2nd time this year while I eat another Reese’s.
