Gave out fun little monster bags — handcrafted for Halloween. We had a great time handing them out to all the little trick or treaters, although I did have to barricade the intruder early warning system (the dog, Mr. Gumby) into the living room.

in honor of Halloween, and my favorite witch, Elphaba from Wicked I will share a song that it so ridiculously timed for my life soundtrack right now:

For Good:

(Elphaba):
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made from what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend…
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant world
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
(Glinda):
Because I knew you
(Both):
I have been changed for good
(Elphaba):
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I’ve done you blame me for
(Glinda):
But then, I guess we know
There’s blame to share
(Both):
And none of it seems to matter anymore

And kids, in a pinch, never purchase dollar store fake cobwebs. Ever. Let’s just leave it at your imagination as to what happened, and hope there is never a YouTube video.
