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.
