Okay, okay, first dinner. Let's just get it over with people. I had meant to put something in the crockpot this morning since I knew we weren't doing anything tonight, but it didn't happen. I went straight from work to taking the Emperor out trick-or-treating downtown to coming home starving and so after discussing our options (there's plenty of good food in the house, but most of it involves like, peeling and stuff), Josh trekked out to the grocery store to find us something really lazy for dinner. Which is how we ended up with this:
Mmmm, beige food.Oh well, it was food. Look! We ate food (for some values of food) 31 days in a row and now my MoFo blog will stand forever as proof of this!
Thanks again to everyone who read along and commented this year. I had so much fun. Maybe you've seen in comments, but in case you didn't... I'm going to *try* to blog a bit more in the eleven months between now and next MoFo. Not making any promises, but we'll see. It really was a blast this year.
What else was a blast: doing Halloween stuff with the Emperor. For my last MoFo post, you are going to get BONUS bonus pictures. (Some of them have food in them. It's on topic.)
Emperor in his pirate costume. This is after he spent all day at preschool in the costume-- we were amazed by how un-terrible his white shirt was at the end of the day though Josh was still referring to him as Filthy the Filth Pirate.
Here he is telling me we need to go back out trick-or-treating. Me: "I think we're going to stay in the house and hand out treats now." Him: "I think" (cocks head to side) "we go more trick-or-treat? Do more trick-or-treat? I think so."
He only actually got about seven pieces of candy (and one cool eraser shaped like an ambulance) during downtown trick-or-treating. Seven pieces... probably plenty for him. I had him pick one piece to eat right away and he chose this lollipop. I read somewhere that these are accidentally vegan, just going to show once again that vegan doesn't necessarily equal healthy. Though in this case, it does equal adorable.
Speaking of vegan, we handed out little bags of pretzels as our treat. I was a little worried we'd end up hearing a lot of kids whining about this but no one seemed upset about it and we gave out every last baggy. We had 94 trick-or-treaters by the time we ran out-- at 7 p.m. We really only had our light on about an hour. That's nuts.
The Emperor was falling over tired by the end of the night. I feel him... what a long (but fun! but LONG!) day. Here's a picture of him (in his second costume, pajamas) looking about how I feel at this point.
