Scary Night

Witches and Monsters and Ghosts, "OH MY!" Witches and Monsters and Ghosts, 'OH MY!" Must have been Halloween....... Friday night this house was visited by Princesses, supermen, Pirates, and an array of characters all looking for a treats. This is only the second year that we had children out Trick or Treating. In past years we didn't have any as we are a little out of the way and the houses are so far apart and there just wasn't that many kids that lived in the neighborhood. In the past two years we have had families move in the area with kids and we also have new homes being built.
I really love this time of year and to me Halloween means the start of the holiday season. In just a few short weeks it will be Thanksgiving time and Christmas is not far behind. Which means that I need to really get busy working on the Christmas Wish lists for the Grand kids. Of course that means that my bedroom starts to get smaller and smaller, have to hide the gifts in that room just in case the kids come over.... I am done with a few of the kids, and have a good start on the rest. It does help that I shop most of the year (clearance sales are good) As for the grownup kids, I am done with the girls, but haven't started on the guys yet. I really hate having to run around at the last minute trying to find things on everyone's wish list....
