Guess I had better get my Halloween post up before it's Thanksgiving. I cannot even describe how overwhelmingly busy I have been with my class projects. I feel like this years Halloween was so rushed. It's my favorite holiday and I feel like I didn't get to enjoy it as fully as I like. The cherry on top, I had class on Halloween, so I had to send Celeste to her Dad's. So, so sad.
I did take Celeste trick or treating down town, which we usually do every year. This year, though, I got dressed up too! I saw a sugar skull makeup job on Pinterest earlier this year and I just had to do it. Afterwards we went to a birthday party at the roller skating rink and I skated for the first time in over a decade. We tried to carve our pumpkins, but we ran out of time. Super lame.
We had another birthday party we attended the Sunday before Halloween, then we managed to fit in our annual tradition of Halloween sugar cookies. I frosted them with pumpkin icing. They were super yummy. I know next year I will be even busier since it's my last semester of school, but I am secretly hoping I will be able to enjoy my favorite holiday fully next year.
