When Nintendo asked if they could send us Halloween in a box, I jumped. That same day, Rocket had said that he couldn't wait until next Halloween because then the construction would be done, and we'd be able to decorate for Halloween. I love decorating for the holidays and try to go all out to make it special for the kids, so his observation, followed up with a question that I cannot answer of whether we'll be able to decorate for Christmas, stung.
Nintendo saved us, like Mario to our Princess Peach. Too much?
The excitement was back in our holiday. We handed out Nintendo-themed gummies and other candies to friends and classmates, wore a Boo hat, and later a Luigi costume. Cleverly carved pumpkins with Mario and Boo arrived too, but unfortunately didn't survive. That was the only downer. The kids loved having something extra special on Halloween and I was incredibly thankful to Nintendo.
Both kids hit their fill of houses last night, but it was oddly quiet out with fewer kids as in past years. Though, even that had an upside: we have enough candy to hand out at school for our upcoming birthdays. Bob-ombs for everyone!
