Halloween is Coming!

This morning there was a hard frost on the ground when I left my house, the first one of the year. Ever since I was a little girl growing up in Maine that has been the first sign that Halloween is fast approaching and it was finally time to go buy my Halloween costume. When I was little costumes came in card board boxes with the scratchy plastic masks, and we loved them.

Every year we would go to the local store and stand in front of the choices trying desperately to find the perfect costume for trick or treating. My siblings and I would fight over which super hero or cartoon character we would be for the year. One year when I was still pretty little my mother made us some pretty silly looking chicken egg costumes made out of "mill paper" and rented herself a giant yellow chicken costume for the night. The only benefit was I got all the Dots and gummy fish that she collected that night and she ate my popcorn ball :).

In case I don't get a chance to post before then have a safe and happy Halloween!
