Do you remember being a kid and waiting for halloween? Do you remember the ideas and
plans and so much excitement that it spun from you head to your toes, back up to you head
and singed out through your hair?
Well as we all are overly aware, yesterday was that holy day of days where dressing up is
not only acceptable but also encouraged. Though in all honesty, it seems like most grown-ups
rev up for the extreme night and then sigh with relief once it has all passed . . .
What a hustle and bustle . . .
We started our evening with a light potluck dinner. . .
This next picture is of my friend’s sweet children readying them selves for the evening
by first eating carmel dunked apples . . .
The night finally wound to and end . . . Feeling very complete by the time we got home and everyone had dumped their sweets onto the counter, picked out their few to save and brushed their teeth with the strongest tooth paste in the house.
Hope all your Halloweens were truly wonderful . . . Cheers ~ Marica
