This is Halloween morning. Our costumes are finally assembled and we’re ready to make our ways downstairs to get rushed by 400-500 bloodthirsty children. (By the way, all of the photos in this post are courtesy of Anna, the beautiful flower on the left below.)

What I wasn’t prepared for–but really should have been–was getting mobbed by other teachers who wanted 10 pictures with me a piece. I was pulled in opposite directions with an iron-fist on each arm. I was dragged across the grass in high-heels so fast that I almost tripped on my face. One teacher spun me around so aggressively I suffered from minor whiplash! It was INSANITY! And the screaming! Screaming about who needed me more in what picture, what class I should pose with next. And don’t forget about the bloodthirsty children. They were trailing behind me and the other teachers chanting “Trick or Treat! Trick or treat! KATIE, I NO HAVE CANDY!” It didn’t take very long for me to lose my cool and start screaming along with the rest of them.
