No, I wasn’t hiding out from our first real snow of the season yesterday. I actually took the day off to volunteer at my son Max’s pre-school Halloween party!

I had so much fun watching him interact with other kids his age, something I don’t get to do on a day-to-day basis. He dressed up as Gecko from PJ Masks. All the kids trick-or-treated in the school’s office wing, there was a parade of all the costumed students. It was a great to be able to interact with my son on a different level than we can do at home, and I look forward to more opportunities like that.

After school, we went home and finished up preparations for our annual family Halloween party. We ate some chili, went trick-or-treating in the frigid cold for about 10 minutes dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz before heading back to hang out with our family.

As a matter of fact, I may be taking Halloween off every year! I hope you had a good one, and for those that get to head out today/Saturday, have fun!
