Happy Halloween, etc.
My dad got me a Wonder Woman action figure for my birthday.
It is sweet.
And it came with a sign that says "Infinite Crisis."
Just now, Dane asked me what that meant. I said I had no idea.
And then he said, "That's kind of like you."
Excuse me. I do not think I am always in crisis. I mean, come on. Sure, I get stressed at work when it's busy. And I get frustrated when we're late picking Rye up from daycare for the third time in a week. And when I'm cold, I might tell him -- or anyone -- that I'm cold.
So tonight was Halloween, which might still be my favorite holiday, even though I'm grown up (yes, I'm finally admitting it). And Rye was excited for about the first 10 minutes. And then he started asking to go home.
No, I told him the first 15 times he asked.
But then 25 minutes or so later, we finally gave in.
Seems like we timed it, though, so that we missed most of the trick-or-treaters who would have stopped at our house, had we been home with our porch light on instead of soliciting candy from neighbors we've never met.
The end result: We have lots of candy.
But this is not a crisis.
So here are some more pictures, including one of my birthday on Monday.
