Hello and welcome to ThreeChannels.

Be Not Mistaken…God has a Grand Sense of Humor

Otherwise why would He allow Edward’s Darth Vader Cape to catch on fire from some errant Maple Cove Halloween Exhibit Candle in full view of two prominent local families.

If Edward learned one thing at Skippy John Jones Computer Magnet Academy, it was “stop, drop and roll.”

He’s unscathed.  Now we owe the Blether’s family a Darth Vader cape…small price to pay for not being a burn victim…or having to return to the ER.  (Not that I don’t have an ER doctor’s cell phone on speed dial at this point.)

(I’ve got to stop bragging about this, seriously…)

Joseph, however, ran on his merry, candy-crazed way, exclaiming to the amazed Maple Cove crowd:  “I think Edward’s on fire!”


I can’t make this stuff up.

Laney Cohn was just standing there…”Was Edward just on fire???”

Alivia Blanengard just smiles on the sidewalk… “Excitement follows you all wherever you go, doesn’t it?”

Pretty much.

Try not to be so jealous….

You know, between our filthy mommobiles and the tendency of “excitement” (better word: ulcers) to follow us everywhere, I’d say we have a little in common.

No conflagrations on our trick-or-treating trip. But we definitely didn’t get enough candy. I’ve already stolen all of the kids’ snickers bars, and I’m just not feeling satisfied. 😉

Might have to hit the candy clearance aisle at the store later.

You really do have a stressful life girl friend. So glad you have a blog as an outlet to express it all with your big glam sense of humor!

I think it helps me that when something somewhat disastrous happens, my first thoughts:
1: I say ‘VANPAN’
2: I get the camera
3: I clean it up and think about how I can turn this stressful situation into a funny blog post!

Smoochies! Hope you and your fab fam of 5 have a restful weekend, sans ER trips or catching on fire! Don’t run over any cats either sweetie, especially the class mascot cats!

All I can say is, wow. Thank God he was okay and you were spared an ER visit. You guys are definitely the life of the party, or at least the local fire hazard. 😉 Maybe next time carry a small purse size extinguisher…I’ve learned to bring a mini first aid kit, as mine are always falling down.

Wow. That is crazy. Though it does make me wonder if perhaps they should change the display because it seems to be a fire hazard. Thank goodness no one was hurt. But what a great story!

Is it wrong that I’m laughing hysterically right now? If it is, I’m sorry. Actually, who am I kidding? I’m not sorry. That’s hilarious! If only my life were half as exciting as yours. 🙂

Yikes! I am so glad he didn’t get hurt…but it did make me giggle only because it is SO something that would happen to one of my boys!

WOW! So glad he’s okay, but you do have some ER curse or something going on right? Or do you just thrive on the stress?

Wow. I have to admit, I laughed. But only because no Edwards were harmed in the burning of this halloween darth vader cape.

I do not envy your luck.

Wow…. just… wow. I’m SOOOO glad that Edward is okay, and I hope he’s not too traumatized from the incident.

I HAD NO idea! I guess I was running down the street chasing the big ones and praying they stayed on one side of the street!
I am so on it sometimes!
It was so fun to have all of you at the party
And Darth Vader was a blast!
I am posting pics soon 🙂
