Good morning and Happy Halloween!  Today is the first day of November which also means the first day of NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) and my attempt at writing a post a day in November.  I can't promise it will keep interesting, but I can promise there will be at least a post a day.  At the very least, an updated picture of Olive or a funny YouTube video - so much to look forward to!  So check back each day for something.

CC and I were in full Halloween mode last weekend with costume parties on both Friday and Saturday night.  Monday I started my new job and about two hours into the day I felt a sickness setting in.  It felt like a bad chest cold with an achy fever that broke on Wednesday night.  I felt better Thursday and Friday, but sounded worse, with lots of sneezing, hacking, and nose blowing.  It has since subsided leaving only a very annoying cough and me wondering if I have survived Swine-flu or just a bad cold.  

Yesterday (actual Halloween) was our first Trick-or-Treat at Wildwood.  In an hour and a half we went through a whole cauldron of candy for the kids and a whole pot of cider for CC, Ruby, Red and I.  Afterwards, CC and I headed to Gene-O and MarBear's for their annual costume party.  CC gussied up in his Edward Scissorhands get-up for the third time, but I just wasn't in the Gilly mood this weekend.

I have to give CC props for his costume making abilities.  He always comes up with a creative idea and makes the whole costume himself.  The scissorhands are made from foam-core scissors glued to gloves so that he can still function.  I did his make-up.  He scared a few children with this one.
