Ya know, I always forget how stressful the holidays are until I am neck deep in them. During the year leading up to this particular Halloween, I had forgotten the misery that is homemade costumes. I had forgotten how my children obtain candy and then turn into little miser trolls who hoard the sweetness and scratch and claw at sister-miser trolls who try and trespass into their territory. I had forgotten how absolutely insane it is to put so much time, work, sweat and blood into a couple of hours of begging for food.

But my kids had a BLAST. And they were pretty darn cute, even if I do say so myself. 🙂


And I have to say that Noodle garnered many, many shouts of adoration and awe from strangers who wished they had their own pet mummy.


Too bad, so sad. Cuz she’s ours. 🙂

I hope everyone’s had a fabulously spooky night! I’m off to make some sense of the havoc we’ve wreaked on this place. Ciao!
