I guess it's here...the weekend for little ghost and goblins to appear on our porches.
All decked out in their halloween best...
Ghostly shadows make them squeal with delight if someone hollers Boo!!!!
I remember the fun times I had dressing my own kids as scarecrows and ghosts..
Just using what we had around the house, we scrambled for flannel shirts and overalls,
And great big grocery sacks we saved to gather their treats in.
Sometimes it was too cold to go without coats, but even that didn't dampen their spirits.
Some years we had pretty weather so they could really strut their costumes.
Porch lites of friends and neighbors shining in the clear dark night.
And the elderly folks we would find...handing out cookies and popcorn balls..
made with tender loving hands...
Memories of All Hallows Eve with my own kids...
We sure did have a lot of fun and laughter..
"Trick or Treat"
And then home to see what we have in the dark depths of the sack.
Their daddy would hover over them looking for...
his favorite kind of candy as they emptied their sacks.
"Mama...Daddy...Look what I got."
