Happy Halloween!

So, its Halloween. This used to be one of my favorite holidays as a kid! I have SO many memories of trick or treating with my brother and sister, and then when I got older, my friends.

I still remember where the "good candy" houses are, and remember the furthest I ever walked one year. I made it halfway across town and had to drag my pillowcase back because it was so full of candy.

I remember hiding all the candy so my mom didn't know how much I really had. I remember sorting it all into like kinds, the "good stuff", the "yucky stuff", the stuff I wanted to trade, and the stuff I wanted to eat first. All the starbursts in one pile, all the candy bars in another. All the licorice over here, and all the stupid pencils and tiny toys over THERE.

Although, I can't remember what I ever dressed up as... I know one year I was yoda, and another year I was a baby (that was the most fun!), but other than that, I can't recall... Isn't that sad? The was one of the most important things, deciding what you were going to "be". And now I can't remember any of those "oh, so important" decisions.

This year all three of my kids are dressing up, and Pat has taken the day off to go trick or treating with us. Josie is going to be Tinkerbell, Mia is going to be a kitty cat, and Blake is going to be a monkey. :) I am actually looking forward to tonight. I think it will be so much fun to go out as a family and make some memories for my kids.

Anyways, tonight should be a lot of fun. The weather should be perfect, and the whole family is going out on the town! Hope they have as much fun as I did!

PS. Today's weight 169 lbs.


  1. Ahhhhhhh Halloween...goodtimes. Those are some great memories. I think it is a little sad that in "these times", most kids don't go door to door to trick or treat much. Too many crazys out there.

    One thing you forgot to mention the in your sorting... "homemade stuff" that we used to get lol. The ones that went directly into the trash lol. Could be needles in there...

  2. I remember being a hippy one year and that is all I remember (and I was in 6th grade!)


Say whatever you want! No rules here!
