Honestly, we could not have asked for a better Halloween day!! It was sunny, mild, not a cloud in the sky, 60 something degrees... the makings for a beautiful day! The parade was a lot of fun, the High school did a terrific job marching and the trick~or~treaters this evening were adorable, as always! We had visits from the cutest Elmo ever, a masquerade ball maiden, an escaped insane mad scientist, a butterfly... with her Grandma dressed as a butterfly catcher walking behind her (too bad I never came up with THAT idea when my babies were little) and countless others! These were just a few of my favorites! Everyone had a great, safe time!
This Halloween was a bittersweet one for me. My daughter is old enough now, that she did not want to trick or treat and my son has lived away from home now for a couple of years. This was kinda hard for me... I was actually home to hand out candy with my husband. This was the first year that Beth didn't want to hang out with mom and dad. Fun, of course, but I wasn't walking my own kiddos around the neighborhood. Kinda sad how fast time flies!
We all had a wonderful evening and have the chance to wind down now. Guess what? Now that Halloween is all wrapped up, the holidays are upon us. I want to get into the spirit early this year just because I'm extra busy these days~ pumpkins will be put away tomorrow and slowly, I'll begin to incorporate Christmas throughout our home. I'm excited!!!
Hope everyone had a boo~tiful night!
OH! Real quick, we made the front page of the paper... Cory was interviewed about our "haunted house".... interesting and spooky facts about experiences that we've had here since buying our home. Maybe I'll post the article later!
