We had a fun Halloween this year.  The kids didn't dress up, really, but we did decorate.   I always put a skeleton on the front door.

This was the first year in a while that we had good Halloween weather.  Last year, the holiday was ruined by Super Storm Sandy.  And the year before that

 it snowed.

We've had that skeleton a long time -since the boys were so little they couldn't even pronounce the word skeleton.  He's pretty dusty and torn in a few places, but he must be holding up well, because he can still ...

touch his toes.

We had friends over, and ate fried chicken and drank margaritas, so I didn't feel so bad that my kids were too old to dress up and trick or treat ... (sob!)  At least I got to eat a bunch of fun-size Three Musketeer bars - my favorite.

Then the skeleton went back to the attic with his friend Frank.


Happy November!
