Tomorrow is my son's Halloween party. I've been planning (sort of) for weeks. I've been thinking about what needed to be done, gathering supplies, and decorating. Yesterday, I rolled the marshmallows on sticks into melted chocolate and then sprinkles. They sat on parchment until the chocolate hardened, and then were individually bagged. Today, I tied these adorable little tags around them that say "Happy Halloween."

Next, I gathered all the items that I will be putting out for our scavenger hunt, including masks, a wig, pixie sticks, colored fangs, rings, bones sunglasses, candy in little plastic heads, the list goes on... I put them in bags and boxes to make it easier to trek them out to the backyard tomorrow morning. I cannot set the hunt up too early, because animals and, perhaps, children might make their way into the backyard for early picking.

I got the plates and napkins out, made lists for what I will need to get tomorrow (ice, "Caution" tape) before the party. I have to be well planned, because the party is at 4:30 p.m., and Ward and I are going to hang his art at his exhibit space at 2 p.m. The day has to run like a well-oiled machine, or it's gonna be trouble.
I've made the games list: scavenger hunt, bobbing for apples, mummy contest, three-legged race, and musical chairs. The food has been ordered. I'm ready to go.
Sleep won't come, though, because Round 3 of my endless course of steroids (for my unbearably clogged and ringing ear) is keeping me blasted awake. Oh dear.
