Mixed bag of tricks and treats!

I’m a little sad. Halloween is drawing to a close, and the number of ghosts and goblins to visit us was definitely down this year.

I think it was in part due to it being a Sunday, a day for church as well as the last night before another week of school. Plus, several locations did “trunk-or-treat” this year… something that is brilliant for parents, but stinks for those of us who wait all year to give out candy. We absolutely LOVE to do it, and this year we were left a little disappointed.

Oh don’t get me wrong, we had some great costumes come along! Adorable princesses and witches. Stormtroopers and soldiers. Almost all of them saying “Thank you” before walking away. I hope trick-or-treating never fully comes to an end. I don’t know that Halloween is necessarily my “favorite” holiday, but I do so look forward to it every year. Its just FUN!

Now we go into November. A busy month, again, for me. And it’ll probably pass even faster than October did!

I noticed this was my 51st week to do Weekly Winners, and my 51st week on Self Portrait Saturdays. 10 days to my birthday, and I plan to start another Project 365 on the day again. I took a year off and missed it. So time to start another one.

NaNoWriMo and my chapter of “And What Happens Then…” is coming up quick. Hubby’s birthday, Mom’s birthday, and Thanksgiving approaches as well. Turkey and dressing and family and football… oh my!

Ahhh… bring it on. There’s no stopping it anyway. Might as well embrace it and go with the flow…

Happy Halloween!!!

    Looooove your costumes! :) We were very disappointed with no trick-or-treaters. Then I reminded myself that I’ll be a parent someday and get to go trick-or-treating again, which is even more fun than handing out the candy. :-D

      Thanks!!!!

      hehe — I can’t wait to have kids to share halloween with. I think we’ll go early so we can get home and give out the candy we got. Okay, we won’t do that, I’m kidding. But, yes! I love trick or treating. It’s so much FUN and offers a camaraderie you don’t find any other night.
