First of all, thanks to Crystal Kauffman for stopping by last week and giving us that great story!
It’s almost Halloween! And my favorite thing is to open the front door to all those little ghosts and goblins! Kids are so adorable. I love their costumes, and they get so excited when you tell them how pretty they are as a fairy or scary as a ghost. We live sort of out in the boonies and there are no street lamps, so we don’t get a lot of trick-or-treaters. Most of them go down to town where the stores stay open late and give away candy. But we do get a few brave neighbors, mostly dads bringing their young children around. Hah, you know, it really is Dad that does it the most, very few moms. I’ve never thought about that before! Gosh, when I was a kid, we’d never let DAD take us around! And there were sooooo many kids out there. Basically, the adults had to the man the door from dark until about 9:30 pm, never even closing it. And God forbid they should run out of candy! We’d carry a pillow case and usually had to run home at least once to empty it! Thanks to Rita for the costume photo!
If you have kids or grandkids, what are they wearing for Halloween this year? What is your fondest memory of Halloween as a kid?
