This has to be the best Halloween I can remember. Friday night didn't start off as great. Wee man finally went down for nap but later than usual at daycare so couldn't pick him up and take him to Hubbies job but we had a good chill night

Saturday we decided skip music with so much on. Me and munchkin dropped himself off at rental car place to get cargo van. Why - well picking up stuff I lent one Mum who also was giving us ton of great baby stuff and also picking up more stuff from another friend the next day

Then myself and wee man went and dropped off birthday pressie to a friend. I dropped off rather than stay as to be honest scared of being around so many folks without H1N1 vaccine. There was 63 people there including kids there or as my friend put it - mini petri dishes;). Being third trimester and also no spleen well , makes me wary at moment

Would I like the vaccine. Hell yes but none to be found here yet. Hopefully this week !

So anyway after a gushy drop off my hormones flaunting with feeling like bad Mum that my kid was missing a party we headed home

This year in new house we have new neighbors and they have a Halloween Parade and pot luck! How cool is that!

Wee man dressed as pumpkin we went for walk around block or Daddy did and then back to the party.

I made pigs in a blanket. Otherwise known as turkey dogs sliced halfways in cresent rolls. They were a huge hit! We saved the Cake hubby made for the dinner tonight with friends.

Then nighttime and himself took wee lad trick and treating and I did door duty. Wee lad didn't want to come home but sure he was tripping over himself tired at this point. So he came home and tasted his way through some of his candy. He's major impressed with this holiday for sure!

Lovely night then by fire in front room just relaxing and cuddling whole family. Hubby had decorated, carved pumpkins, made a costume from scratch for wee lad and baked and iced a cake. I joke I married Martha Stewart but I know I just got lucky in a guy willing to do anything to put a smile on his sons face
Hope you had a lovely Halloween and now for a restful week
