Tonight was full of hilarious one-liners from Silas, who rode his stick horse about a mile around town. Our town is the kind of place where some folks hand out hot chocolate and cookies on Halloween. We made pumpkin cookies. My attempt to make brown icing ended in a nice puke green color. So the ginger bread men became swamp monsters. My friend gave me a wonderful recipe, which included the words "until it looks right" and an unrighteous amount of food coloring.
At one stop Silas tried to give back the M&Ms, saying, "I already got some of these." Then, when kids came to our door, he wanted to hand them the candy he had collected instead of the cookies. The hot chocolate and cookie stop was the best, followed by the "take a handful" house. And, at grandma's house? Yes, folks, our little cowboy received some stickers and...a cough drop.
I just went out to the front porch to blow out our Jack-o-lantern's candle, the deer had already found it and eaten its face off. Mr. Pumpkin Face, Jr. only lasted four hours.
