Today is the day when little ghosties and ghoulies will be out prowling the streets! When I was a little girl, it was always a special treat when Halloween came on Saturday. It meant we could start trick-or-treating earlier and we had longer to perfect our costume.
This will be the first Halloween for itty bitty David. He's 7 months old now and even though he doesn't care at all about tricks or treats, mom and dad want to show him off! He will be dressed up as Pooh dressed up as Tigger. They spent a fortune on his costume, but ya know, that's OK. They will have fun and Grandma will get to take his picture!
We don't typically get many children on our block. Mostly, that's because we are the only house with the lights on, so it's kind of a waste of time to walk down the street for one treat. We'll get a few, though, so they will make out like bandits.
I will have to turn off the lights for a little while. I need to take pictures of those little witches and goblins for the local newspaper, so I will go over to a friend's house for a while. She always gets lots of visitors for candy. I'll take a few shots and then run over to the Harvest Party at one of the churches and take a couple pictures there, too.
After that, I'll come back home and hope to get rid of some of this candy. If not, we'll have to eat it all ourselves!
Enjoy your day and beware of those things that go bump in the night ... or on your front step!
