Oct 31 – Halloween Google Doodle



I love the Google doodles! They are so creative – you never know which holidays/birthdays/anniversary events that they will mark so you end up going over there once a day just to see what might be up.


We aren’t celebrating outside the blog this year 🙂

It being a Wednesday it sort of snuck up on us and since no one in the house is young enough to care anymore it REALLY snuck up on us! We are going to a volleyball game at the high school tonight and then either going out to dinner or hiding out in the house with shades drawn, gate locked up and lights off to discourage trick or treat visits. OK, that SOUNDS kind of spooky but in reality most likely everyone will be in their rooms watching TV or playing video games.

For those of you who are celebrating – have a safe and fun day and night!

Where did all the kids go?


Look at that large bowl of leftover candy! That’s just half! I already took a pile that big into work. This bowl will go there next week despite the protests of the various men/boys who pass through the house on a given day. I can’t have this at my fingertips! I’m writing this from the freshman game with a ziploc bag of candy on hand as a snack to tide me over to dinner. Pathetic!! Resistance is futile. Two years ago I ran out of candy! I guess since the economy has stalled and no one is moving, the kids in the area all outgrew the annual candy begging ritual.

Happy Halloween!
