So big doings tonight. Will has never been trick-or-treating before and last Halloween he wasn’t yet in the candy-eating business, so this year Halloween is emerging of epic proportions. Based on the questions I am getting from him, I picture this endless reel looping through his brain—PEOPLE ARE GOING TO HAND ME CANDY TONIGHT AND I AM GOING TO PUT IT IN MY PUMPKIN AND I AM GOING TO EAT IT—accompanied by doo-wop background singers chanting candycandcandycandycandycandy. Over and over.

Say a prayer for his teachers today—or just make that teachers everywhere!

Here’s a few snaps (and I do mean snaps, eek!) of one of my bumblebees yesterday during the nursery school parade.


The whole crew took a walk through the village, handing out boxes of raisins to shopkeepers and passers by. They did beautifully staying in a group and on the sidewalk until they spotted a giant leaf pile outside the library—they all broke rank and ran for the leaves en masse. You’ll have to imagine it, since I did not discuss splashing photos of unsuspecting fairies and firefighters on the Internet with their associated parents.


And, you might ask, what is Will doing walking down the street carrying an armload of leaves?


“This is so I can jump in them at home!”


Happy Halloween, all. Can’t wait to see your photos.



P.S. Are you going to do it? I am, though God help me and my readers, too, after thirty consecutive posts. I think we will be redefining what an actual post means in the next month. Join me?

    That bee costume is so cute. I was a bee in college, but my costume wasn’t nearly as cute. Also, I would do NaBloPoMo but I post every day except weekend days already, and also I’ll be out of town for almost half the month so it isn’t the best timing. But I look forward to reading your daily posts.

    Did that hand full of leaves make it home? I think playing in leaves inside would be very fun! I’m hoping to do daily posts…we’ll see if I can keep up!

    That bee is adorable! And I’m with you – Halloween is emerging as an event of epic proportions around here as well. There will be Candy! and Costumes! And CANDY! Oh boy….

    I’m going to try for 30 days of posts…we’ll see how long I make it before I miss one…

    Hi. I’m on cute overload. So he can jump in them at home. Haha. Precious.

    I’m doing NaBloPoMo. God help us all.

    I’m not doing NaBloPoMo. .I’m going to have sushi instead. You know I’d never make it. OK, your bees are just perfect. And thanks for the shout out to teachers, I am on the couch eating candycandycandy I was too proud to eat in front of my gaggle of mothers who helped at the party. They didn’t eat either, so I know they are home doing the same.

    I’m doing, God help me, NaNoWriMo. Though I suppose I could combine it with NaNoBloPo and blog about how much I hate myself for getting involved with NaNoWriMo…

    But of course he’s bringing the leaves home! What else?

    Good luck to us all with this post-every-day craziness. :o)

    I’ve only been blogging since June, but I am going to try NaBloPoMo. We’ll see!

    And, btw, I LOVE your pictures. Also, Will’s comment. Duh Mom. 😛

    Maybe it has to do with being a mom of 4 boys, but I knew exactly why he had those leaves. Adorable shots.

    Candy Hangover — way better than the other kind. Our school finally got smart this year — they scheduled a curriculum day for November 1 so they wouldn’t have to try to control several hundred highly sugared maniacs.
