First off, is there a better holiday than Halloween? I mean, you get candy for free, get to dress up how ever you want and scaring the living guts out of people is totally acceptable behavior. These are things I wish could happen every single day of the year.
Oh, and do I need to mention that its even better now that I have a little goblin to go around and collect my candy for me? #1 reason to have babies. Seriously.
Needless to say, we had a great Halloween. How cute was Sam as Charlie Chaplin? I loved it. I felt obligated to out-do his last year rendition of Harry Potter. The pressure came from everyone and their Mom asking me what he was going to be this year. I knew I had to make it good, and that's what I came up with. Little did I know that without his bowler hat, which is hard to keep on an 18 month old, he would look almost identical to a man named Adolf Hitler. Oops.
So, we borrowed a "Cowardly Lion" costume from some friends and walked through our neighborhood without offending any Jews or gypsies. It was fun.
