All Hallows Eve...circa 2000

Emma is working on some pretty scary chemistry homework tonight and passing out a few treats before heading out to a late evening rehearsal and Finn disappeared after school to spend the evening watching horror movies with friends.  We have a nice pot of chili on the stove, a few friends stopping by for drinks and a gigantic bowl of candy for hoards of trick-or-treaters, but something about Halloween feels a little different this year. Every one is so darn grown up and busy that I was the only person in our family to carve a pumpkin last night.  I love how time moves forward, but tonight I had to subtract twelve years just for a second; back then I would have been spending the night with a tiny snugly elephant and monitoring the sugar intake of an exuberant Madeline!
