Happy Halloween! ♥

Hello Friends. Happy Friday! 

So this is happening right now....

 Our first snowfall!

One of the earliest I can remember.  It won't amount to much as rain is washing most of it away but no denying that IS October! Shall I start playing the Christmas music now?! 

I can hardly believe tomorrow is Halloween!  October went by in a blink.  It was colorful and beautiful and thankfully nature did not disappoint me.  Today's heavy rain/snow mix will surly take more leaves off the trees and we turn our clocks back this weekend.  I heard on the news Sunday's sunset will be at 4:30.  I don't mind it.  It just means one more hour of candle burning,  cozy couch sitting, and sleeping which is ok by me.  We'll make it work.  Just like every year.  I went grocery shopping this morning and got ingredients for chicken pot pie, chili, and a roast dinner.  All comfort foods.  I blame the snow.  

We are spending a quiet night at home tomorrow.  I promised John a festive dinner and a scary movie (his choice) BUT before any of that happens we'll be watching The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.  I thank the Lord we own the DVD because I'm so upset it's not airing on network TV this year. I mean....what???  Who's idea was this?  Charlie Brown is an American treasure and a holiday tradition.  How dare they deprive those of us that don't have apple tv of that joy.  Whoever you are, I'm holding a grudge.  And don't even get me going on A Charlie Brown Christmas.  What is this world coming to? 

ok, I'm glad I got that off my chest.... carry on now.... :)

Sadly John isn't dressing up this year, but to get us in a festive mood (and because I wanted to reminisce a little) here are a few pictures of John from Halloweens gone by.  It seems like only yesterday I was taking him by the hand to our neighbors door to trick or treat. I wish I could go back to those days!  

I was crazy about this St. Bernard costume.  He did not feel the same. lol 

Dracula a few years later.  He LOVED this one! 

Elvis!  70's version 

2015 vs. 2019

John is guilty of repeating costumes.  Also themes.  

Food was IT for a few years. 

And then there's this.

The candy sort. 

 I remember this day.  It was the morning after Halloween.  Clearly the sugar high hadn't worn of yet!

I'm grateful to have so many happy Halloween memories to look back on.  This year will indeed be different, but still memorable.  And even better, I won't be gaining any extra candy weight because there won't be a candy stash to raid after everyone goes to bed! For the sake of my waistline maybe some traditions should be broken : ) 

However you are celebrating tomorrow I hope you have a safe and happy evening!

Happy Halloween Friends!!  I'll see you in November!
