3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . . LIFTOFF!

It’s finally Halloween.ย Manchild has been telling us for days, if not weeks, that today is the day he is going to liftoff.

He’s going to the moon.

After he goes trick-or-treating, of course.

He’s told me I’ll need to have my phone ready, so he can call me.

And he’d really like a map so that he can figure out where he is once he comes back to earth.

There are so many possibilities: “I could land in Antarctica, or South America, Central America, or Africa. Maybe New Zealand, or Australia, the ocean, mountains under water, maybe Greenland. I might go on the North or South Pole. I might go anywhere . . . I’ll try to be careful, Mom. But I hope I will land in Utah, probably where your mom and dad live.”

(I’m sure Grandma and Grandpa would like that.)

I just hope he finds his way back home.

The moon would miss him.

And so would I.

Happy Halloween!

    Thanks! I’ll let Micah know that he’s still maintaining that high standard people have come to expect from him.

  2. That last picture is so cute it’s almost painful. I don’t even know your kids that well and it makes me want to drive to NY to kiss and squeeze the moon and hear tales from the astronaut.

    Thanks Heather! If you do come to NY, you are welcome to listen to the astronaut as much as you like. He loves an audience. The moon might be a little bit shy, but he does warm up eventually. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh. My. You guys are patenting these costume ideas, right? But you’re still going to let my children borrow them, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    If I remember correctly, Meg, you are quite the talented costume designer as well. (Oh, and our costumes were all Micah, right down to my haircut and styling.)

    Thanks, Rachel! I’ll make sure the boys read this when they start thinking homemade costumes aren’t cool.

  6. these are just so adorable…so clever (as always!)…

    I had the strangest dream that involved your entire family last night…I have no idea why, but maybe it was because I was reading about NYC right before bed last night and you guys are the only people I know of that live there…anyways.. I was babysitting your children at your apartment and I wasn’t doing a good job at all and you were sooo mad at me… haha random eh??
