1. Halloween make-up is a nightmare to apply, but totally worth it, but ONLY once a year! I definitely need another 364 days to help me forget what a pain it was and how much I never want to do it again! (Who are we kidding, I'm a Halloween nut with the brain of a lemming - I will have forgotten by Thanksgiving;)
It took almost as long to get off as it did to put on, and my kid looked like something out of a horror film! Is it just me, or is that totally terrifying?!
3. Contrary to popular belief, it is actually NOT a great idea to give your 60 and 80 pound dogs a bath on Halloween day. For most of you this is just common sense, but for me, it's really going to have to be something to try and remember in the future. I was the "room mother" for Kort's class, and on the Halloween parade committee, and in charge of decorating the doors at the school, all in that one day - and during the only free 45 minutes of my day, I decided to throw two gigantic dogs into a tub full of bubbles? Wow, total judgement lapse on my part. I must have used up all my common sense when selecting a Halloween costume that didn't fit into the category of soft core porn. ha ha! (okay, I'm really done this time.) On the bright side, Bubbuh got to be a sea serpent for Halloween, so I guess it wasn't ALL bad!
6. Grandparents (and Aunt Nancy's) are wonderful! Thanks to both sets of grandparents for taking time to see Kort in his costume and letting him know he is loved, and special thanks to Kyle for always managing to look smokin' hot in every picture I take.
