Plastic spiders that jump when you flick the lever on the back
Gummy organs...mmm, love the intestines
Gummy frogs that ooze green slime when you bite them
Witch gum that starts foaming when you put it in your mouth
I also bought some sticky eyeballs, but I don't have a picture of those...sorry. Everything here was purchased at Oriental Trading, and I have to say that the prices were amazing for what I bought. If you tend to have a lot of trick-or-treaters, consider getting your candy there.
My Mommie Dearest costume is coming along nicely, but I'm stuck with finding the perfect wig. I know it doesn't matter, really, but I'm being picky. I promise to have pictures for you after Halloween. Sandy makes a lovely Christina...wait till you see!

Dave and Kate's wedding was so beautiful and I'm honored to have been a guest. Dave and I chatted outside during the reception about how long we've known each other and we came to the conclusion that it has to be going on 18 years now, maybe longer. Time has a way of sneaking up on you, you know? Wow. Kate is such an incredible person and I'm so glad I've had the chance to get to know her. She's a true friend. Anyway, Kate was a beautiful bride and the ceremony and reception were so sweet. Their wedding was held at the Arkell Museum in Canajoharie. We didn't get there in time to see the art, unfortunately, but I'd love to go back and see the collection as soon as possible. I think we've already moved through the peak of the foliage, so the ride won't be as pretty as it was this time around...we got lucky. But, the little town is so quaint and perfect and I'd love to wander around, getting lost in the shops. I won't be including pictures of myself here because my dress was a bit, uh, shall I say "indecent" now that I see the shots taken that night. Let's just say that my girls, well, they fought their way to make an appearance at the wedding too.
So, that's that. The madness is officially over and I can go back to my daily routine. I'm overwhelmed and exhausted by how busy these past two weeks have been and I welcome the normalcy of a weekday with open arms. I'm spending today at home, catching up on some movies and trying desperately to finish the book I've been making my way through. It seems as though every time I sit down to read I fall fast asleep. Perhaps a nap is in order. What are you crazy kids up to?
More shots of Dave and Kate's wedding here.
