“Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen, voices whisper in the trees, “Tonight is Halloween!”
We really half arsed Halloween this year, I would love to have gone all out but it is just not financially feasible to go all out for every holiday. Maybe next year..I would LOVE to have decorations outside and lots of pumpkins and great costumes and make Halloween themed treats...but we just had a big party for our little girl's birthday and Christmas is around the corner so we have to pick and choose. But it was a great day!!! It was her first time trick or treating and she did awesome!!!! She walked almost the whole time even though it was FREEZING outside, she held her little pumpkin on her arm...which calls 'punnit', she said 'trick or treat' after she knocked on the doors all by herself and then she told everyone 'sank you'. She was darling- in fact, she had the cutest costume on the block! For me it was a purely gleeful experience to take my daughter trick or treating for her first time- I was SO proud of her, it's amazing to see her take part in traditions like these for the first time. And since this was our first year in our new house it was such a nice neighborly thing to do. It couldn't have been a better evening.
