My favorite sort of party these days*: utterly spontaneous (J's whole carpool hung out to participate); 'catered' by Trader Joe's (spiced cider, pumpkin pies, canned whipped cream, and piles o' punkins); attended by a bunch of sticky, screaming kids; served up by a handful of mimosa-chugging moms in dirty jeans and 2-day-old mascara; all ending in a viewing of a live-action Disney movie from my childhood (in this case, "Escape to Witch Mountain").
*Really, I just can't believe it. I used to be such the planner, with all sorts of lists and calendars and clippings. But now Ander and Zaza are my calendar -- I know it's Autumn because they're bringing home construction paper pumpkins and black cats. And it's so funnnnn, this letting go of the perfectly planned moment. I never expected to laugh my booty off while up to my neck in silly silly chaos and spilled cider.
