Happy Halloween!

                


I loved Halloween as a child...dressing up in whatever costumes we could arrange with whatever items we had in our home. Luckily, my older siblings had MANY fun items from their lives that they were willing to share with me. Canes and hats and leis and skirts and make up and scarves....it was so hard for me to decided which to choose...there was so much! I recall going to a Halloween party at the neighbors house, dressed as......you will never guess.......a shepherd....(Christmas is my favorite Holiday!) They asked me...."Aren't you a few months early?" but I didn't care.  I really, really REALLY wanted to use that cane my sister had won at the school carnival as part of my costume and I was too short for it to be anything but a shepherd staff.....So a shepherd I was......a sister accompanied me to the party, but I do not recall which sister. But what a strange little girl I was! *Giggle*....I still do what I want, though it may look funny and silly to others...I drive my children and Wonderful Husband to embarrassment on occasion...I'll have to see how much of that I can keep, without embarrassing them TOO much!
I love the Harvest part of Halloween, the Happy part of Happy Halloween. Not the scary, freaky stuff from it. October through November my home is decorated with Fall Harvest items.

Hope your treats outweigh the tricks this evening!
