to you and yours,
from my little monsters & I!
To say they love our pumpkin family is an understatement.
The little trouble makers cannot leave them alone.
On Friday, our downtown businesses opened up for trick or treating so the little’s got a chance to practice their trick or treating skills…meaning=remembering to say thank you.
My handsome King, & pretty little lady bug
& adorable pirate
& cute baseball player(this is my son’s girlfriends son, who I hope is my grandson some day. :)
They did a wonderful job of using their manners.
They are over the top excited for more
Since we rarely buy candy, this is causing them to run in circles & jump on their beds in excitement.
I am sure they will drive me crazy all day…
Asking, “Is it time to go?” or “Can I have just one piece of candy?”
These little trouble makers sure have a lot of fun making trouble and turning this house upside down.
They think they are so smart with all their little tricks.
They don’t realize that I was once a trouble maker just like them.
I remember when I was a little trouble maker just like them…trick or treating…we wouldn’t leave until it was good and dark…I remember having to do tricks for my candy…I remember how each house would have to guess who we were before they gave us our candy…back then they handed out regular sized candy bars and homemade treats like caramel apples and popcorn balls …we made our costumes instead of buying them at a store…we brought homemade treats our mom’s made to our school Halloween parties…we told ghost stories and had fun getting scared…we weren’t worried about predators or people poisoning our candy…we came home with full brown paper bags and dumped out our candy and stuffed ourselves with our favorite treats.
Those were the days.
Then, for a period of time, I believed Halloween was bad. Oh the shame of letting other tell you what to believe. Thankfully, I learned to think for myself and no longer think it’s bad. Even though I still respect those that do.
Thankfully, we live in a small community that allows us to keep some of those fun traditions from Halloweens past.
Hope you have a wonderful day even if you aren’t participating in Halloween festivities.
Trick or treat!
Until next time, love & hugs, Lori
