They're awesome this year. Except for last week. But that game was fixed. I have never seen such BS calls. They (the officials) just HANDED it to Stanford. Screw them.

Halloween:
I remember my mom taking me trick or treating once, but she was not in costume. After that, I was old enough to go with friends on our own (I must have skipped a few years I guess).

I've never gone to a costume party for Halloween. Not as a kid, not as an adult. Our downtown has an event called Moonfest and D and I are loosely thinking about cheesy couples costumes. He's all about indulging me in this experience I've never had.

I love dressing up with the kids! But it's usually something really lazy, like a witch. I got a great hat from the dollar section at Target a few years ago and I have a cape, so it's my costume of choice. I get compliments from other moms, and I have to laugh because I think it's a total cop-out!
I don't think my mom ever dressed up and came out with me. I don't think I would have wanted her to anyway. And I'll stop when the kids ask me to even though I will miss it.
I did last year. I was Clawdeen Wolf from Monster High. Curly red wig and all. Then my daughter had a Monster High themed birthday party in December, so I wore it for that, too. She was thrilled with that!

You could just support them because they are a great team (I see a lot of them going pro) and because it's my school and I'm adorable.

My two friends here from Kansas City are thrilled with their chiefs this year. But watch the chiefs lose all their rest just to spite the fans. ; )

wow... it's amazing what extra crap the human body can hang on to. i just heard about someone who retained 30 POUNDS of fluids due to various medicines' side effects.

and i though the 1.5 liters my gramma was hanging on to was a lot for a 90 pound woman.

We go trick or treating every year with the boys, but we don't dress up.

This year we have a kids/family party and an adults party the weekend before and I'll probably dress up for both just because we are probably going right from the kids one to the adult one.

I'm wearing lederhosen and a fedora and bambi is going as a German beer maid.

This year our school is holding Trunk or Treat on Halloween night. http://trunkortreat.homestead.com/ They usually have it the Friday before Halloween, but people have been complaining about their kids having to wear their costumes twice and ruining them the first time they wear them. Plus, our town has a 7 pm curfew on the 30th and 31st, so it's not like the kids will be going out in the neighborhood at night. I still find it strange that kids trick or treat around here right after school. We used to wait until after dinner when I lived in Colorado and California.

Anyway, a lot of the parents dress up at this event. I'm not sure if I will try to find a costume or just wear a Halloween themed shirt (yay for Target and Old Navy - they have some good options). I remember my parents dressing up when I was younger and my FIL used to dress up with the kids up until last year.

That's funny because a co-worker and I (both from NY) were talking the other day about how, in FL, they wait tll dark but in NY they did it right after school! Just the opposite! I think the 7 PM curfew stinks, though. I think 9 is good.

I don't remember my parents ever dressing up.

My daughter goes every year with her dad to a "Spooky Trail" halloween-themed camping trip. This year, she wants to wear the same costume for both camping and real Halloween. I told her she can, but if she ruins her costume, she's going to have to live with it. We'll see. I am trying to get her to wear last year's regular Halloween costume. Yeah, it's mostly white (not great for a campground), but it's not like she'll wear it again adn I can probably clean it.

After the Giants showing last night, you might want to rethink that.:D

I knew the Bears weren't great. But those Giants...

Eli did complete some passes. Two beautiful passes were right to my team!
