Halloween Food Smackdown

While tucking M into bed tonight, I mentioned that the Halloween extravaganza will continue tomorrow, and she actually groaned!  This whole Sunday thing isn’t working out for us.  It’s too many days–Friday school festivities, Saturday parties, and then the actual holiday.  When I was growing up and there would be multiple celebrations for the same … [Read more…]

Lazy Night

Okay, I had technical difficulties and I’m feeling a little fed up with cyberspace, so I’m slacking off.  But if you’re desperate for a post, I just put something silly up on the CBS 6 Blog.
