Today's the day, kids. The scariest night of the year, other than when I discovered crows feet alongside my eyes. And Mason's first birthday is on Saturday. We bought him a new Halloween costume and he's dying to hit the road to be seen. He's such a showoff. Combine that with the election next week and you've got quite a combination. Mason wanted to be Baaruff Obama for Halloween but we told him he couldn't and that he should just Biden his time until the election was over to see how things went. And, besides, everyone else would Palin in comparison. So, he's just a member of the Mc-K-9 Unit, instead.
