i love halloween - costumes, parties, candy, pumpkins - all of it!
this morning at work there was a parade of halloween cuteness - all the kids from the day care got dressed up in their costumes and "trick-or-treated" through the main hall with their parents. there were princesses and fairies and monkeys and super heroes and they were all so precious i thought i would die! i felt a little weird taking pictures of other peoples' babies, but i just couldn't help myself.
after work, we went to my high school's football game. on our way from the car to the stadium, we could see a million little trick-or-treaters and all of the fun halloween decorations in the neighborhood. and at halftime, the band members were all dressed up in costumes and playing songs like ghostbusters and thriller. i love it when people get into the "spirit" of the holidays...
sorry. that was lame.
but i guess the best part of halloween is that it is the official kickoff of the holiday season - in less than a month, we'll be celebrating thanksgiving, and a month after that, christmas! things are just...better during the holidays. people are nicer, places are warmer, and you get to spend lots of time with those who mean the most to you.
