We did a few things for Hallowe'en. Nothing overly spectacular but it was still fun.
On Sunday, October 30th, Husband, Little Man and I were invited to Husband's aunt & uncle's place in Clyman (which is about an hour's drive from our place). They have five biological kids and two surrogate kids.
Usually, Aunt D and Uncle Old Man have a major Hallowe'en party...this year, it just wasn't in the cards. They've had a lot of things going on in the family from marriages to surgeries to relocation to...well, it's just been a nutso year.
But, they did have a chili dinner on Sunday. The house was full, which is fairly common when you take into account all the kids and surrogate kids, not to mention the grandkids and then you throw us into the mix. We went trick-or-treating before dinner. It was raining and icky and a bit on the cold side. Little Man didn't seem to mind.
After trick-or-treating, we had chili. Little Man tried some chili, too.
Other than that, life goes on in this house as it always does. Little Man has a cold and has been generally crabby the last couple of days. I can't say I'm surprised. It's been cold and rainy around here. I'm kind of miserable too but I'm not sick...just sick of the weather being icky.
This weekend, we're having Little Man's first birthday party. I've been cleaning and organizing and moving things and planning and...it's just nuts. I hope everything gets done.
