Happy Halloween

I’m blowing the dust off of this blog to wish you all a Happy Halloween. Please excuse the coughing. I know it’s a thick layer of dust. As a kid, Halloween was my favorite holiday. 2 reasons. #1: CANDY! #2: it’s the day before my birthday. So Halloween was always like my own personal version of Christmas Eve.

There is a photo on my desk of my brother and me wearing Halloween costumes. Judging by the hair sticking out of my mask, I think I was in the 1st grade and he was in preschool. I’m a tall-for-my-age pink rabbit with big ears and he’s Caspar the friendly ghost. The masks have big smiles on them and I bet ours matched underneath. After all, we were about to be unleashed on unlimited candy for the evening.

Tonight my costume will consist of a “Happy Halloween” shirt, a skirt, and my orange & black striped tights. I will grab a few mini chocolate bars from the candy bowl when the giant hot dog in charge of candy distribution isn’t looking. But it’s okay, because I bought extra.

Enjoy your evening.

Ha! I've always loved the holiday of free candy, too. :) This year I get to take the niece and nephew.

Enjoy, and have a happy birthday!

first of all, Happy early birthday! I love Halloween too. There's a feel in the air today, love the smell, the anticipation. Hubby made the kids the best costumes, the yellow minions from Despicable Me. I will be out trick or treating with the little one while I still can! Not sure what I'll do when my kids are too old. Will I look funny going out on my own? lol
Happy Halloween, Rae Ann!

FARRAH: Thanks! Enjoy trick or treating with your niece & nephew.

MICHELLE: Thank you! Wow on the custom costumes made by your hubby. I liked the Despicable Me movie a lot. I'm sure your children will enjoy the costumes. And the candy!
