Happy Halloween!

No, your eyes do not deceive you. That would be a picture. HOORAY! HIP HIP HOORAY!
Today is Halloween and is Liam's 9th birthday. My yellow-loving, vegetable-hating, Lego-obsessed, Angry Bird and Star Wars fan Liam is nine.
He is so creative and sensitive and fun and I hope you guys get a chance to really celebrate him. Perhaps you could munch some Halloween candy in his honor. =)
He's at school right now, amidst the parade and party that his class is having, surrounded by new friends and not forgotten by his old ones. His previous class mailed him an entire manilla envelope stuffed with handmade birthday cards featuring the minions and Minecraft and every Halloweeny image imaginable. He lit up like the zoo at Christmas.
We did the birthday singing and cake eating and present opening yesterday. I thought he was going to combust. He was so excited to get Battleship and the mini Lego Millenium Falcon that he was up before 6:30 this morning and had the whole thing assembled before I staggered downstairs to supervise the getting ready for school. He's also excited about Trick or Treating in our old neighborhood tonight, even though it's raining, and he is thrilled that we're having pizza, his favorite, for dinner before we go looting.
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... waitaminute, that's a cloud nine Liam!
Happy birthday, buddy. You are so loved. And Happy Halloween to everyone out there. May your candy be especially delicious this year!
