Halloween 2009 and a long hospital trip

Its Halloween again and this year - looks like it is a quiet one in our household.  Sean has a football match in the morning and I have planned to ship Clarissa off to her friends to do trick and treating there.  Must say that it feels funny that we are not doing a Halloween party this year as I have done it for so many years.  

It was the Halloween Dress up  Day at school today.  The older one woke up wanting eye make-up as she has decided to be the "Emo" girl.  I have no idea what emo is but she told me that she was supposed to be an emotional girl.  Ahhhh....  The revelation as I am still in the mode whereby I know Elmo but Emo - hmmm......  So here she is in her "Emo" costume complete with a red scar on her arm.  Your guess is as good as mine as why she needed a red scar.  I blame it on the tween years and the generation gap.

This little one definitely looks like he needs more sleep in his ninja costume.  Desperately needing a better haircut - I did bring him to one a fortnight ago but they did a lousy job as you can see.

My day was a relatively long one with bringing father-in-law to the hospital.  His gait is getting worse and my fears were confirmed.  His latest brain scan showed that he suffered a stroke within these 5 - 10 days.  Sigh.  Its a long story how he is always refusing to show up for appointments and the way he forgets about his medicines - thats another long story.  Well I certainly hope that nothing untoward will happen to him.  Its been a long day and I am ready for bed.  Sean has an early match tomorrow and yup no rest for the wicked mummy.  Toodles.
