Halloween 2022

Happy Halloween Friends!  

It's been a long time coming, but Halloween is finally here!  It's a warm 60°+ outside today, so it doesn't particularly feel like it should be Halloween.  And sadly, Eliot and I are not really having a very spooky celebration around here...   

Our Neighborhood's Halloween Block Party had to be postponed due to one of our neighbors testing positive for COVID last week, so our big party scheduled for last Saturday will be taking place this upcoming weekend instead.  Unfortunately, Eliot and I will be leaving for Trenton right about the same time the block party is starting.  (We are going home for a quick overnight trip to help Mom and Dad out on Sunday.)  So we're probably going to miss most of the event Saturday afternoon and evening.   

I'm hoping we can at least pop out long enough to say hello to our neighbors, give someone else our Halloween candy to pass out, and drop off the prizes for the kids contests that we were in charge of getting.  Eliot and I have decided that we are not going to bother dressing up in costumes or decorating our car for Trunk or Treat since we'll be leaving before we probably even do that stuff.

Eliot and I have basically been celebrating Halloween since August, so I'm not too torn up about it.  Going to Disneyland and seeing the fireworks and spooky decor there was my Halloween highlight.  Still, I'm hoping that we'll get to enjoy a little bit of Halloween cheer.  Eliot wore his new Disneyland Halloween Spirit Jersey to work.  I might put on a Halloween movie later on tonight.  Eliot's trying to get me the last McDonald's Boo Bucket that we're missing.  We've already eaten most of the candy that was supposed to be for the Block Party, so we're going to refill that.  And since I'm staying home in my pjs today, I'm hoping to wear something spooky to my sewing class tomorrow!

It's not much, but it's something!  I'll pop back in sometime next week to fill you in on any fun Halloween activities or festivities that we were able to participate in!

Happy Halloween!!!  °o°
