Happy Halloween

Yay! Finally October 1st. That means the Halloween decorations are going up today BABY!!! To me, Halloween is the second most indulgent and frivolous holiday there is in American culture. Yeah, yeah… I know but I love it!!! Halloween is my second best favorite holiday. I know that Halloween should have a negative religious connotation for me, but I am a bit sad to say it does not. And only a bit sad because my parents do not approve. To me it’s simply a chance for us to escape the triteness of our lives and be creative and playful.

It makes me smile thinking of all the fond memories of shopping with Jen to get just the right costume. It meant seven years of endless baking for the PTA and helping with the Halloween parade at Jen's school. Decorating the house and carving Jack-O-Lanterns. And don’t forget shopping for the perfect treats to pass out to all the little goulish Halloween visitors.

I will be volunteering again this year at Fright Planet Sacramento Haunted House. There are currently taking applications. It’s for a good cause and I hope to scare you there! www.frightplanet.com/ca/2008/jobs.html -

Halloween to me is just something that is so incredibly fun!


  1. Jen looks so damn cute! Can't wait to see the decorations at your place when I receive my much needed massage. Hurry and get back to work I am in pain. Looking forward to seeing you at fright planet.

  2. Yes, Jennifer is a cutie!! Just like her mama!
