No, They Did Not Get Married on Halloween

My parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary this weekend. We kids threw them a party on the 13th, although the proper date is the 14th. More on this later, but let me just say that one of the highlights for me, besides seeing my parents so happy to see all the guests and all of us kids at the same time, was hearing my son singing "Chapel of Love" by the Dixie Cups -- except he was singing, "Goin' to the jack-o-lantern! Gonna get ma-a-arried!"

Gee. Do you think he'd been reading this? ;^)
