halloween magic.......






here is the recipe for an unforgettable Halloween (taking notes?)

Step one::
in a bowl, mix together
:: one four hour stint of pouring rain (make sure to add it at 4pm, and keep adding until 9pm)
:: one good splash of 40 mph winds
:: two boys already soaked in above rain
:: two soaking parents desperate to come back early and call it a night.

Step two::
When finished, place another bowl of candy outside your door and wait patiently inside until bowl empties itself. (drinking wine while you wait is suggested)

Step three::
Adjust the recipe, by eliminating all of the ingredients in Step one. (except for the boys....just make sure they are dry next time). Save recipe, and try again next year.

:: I have never tried the recipe this way before, and although it didn't turn out quite as good as previous attempts, the boys were still very happy with the results. It's amazing how just a touch of sugar to the recipe can make them want some more :)

been there! after 13 halloweens we've had a few with rain, a few with fevers and all with wine but at the end of the night if the kids got to wear their costumes and there is candy to trade and share they are happy.... and then they begin to think about next year!

funny thing is Trey didn't complain a bit...me on the other hand, it was hard not to complain but his happiness made it a bit easier:)
