More Halloween

Surprisingly enough since we made no plans, this Halloween turned out to be one of the best for years. What made it so great? It's wonderfulness was created by (believe it or not) the teenagers. We gathered at my house to eat and I was already decked out in the Viking costume. Neither Trent nor Big J had ever celebrated Halloween in a big way and so we just started painting faces and going through the boxes of costumes I keep around and those big boys were like little kids in their excitement. I was so happy to be able to give them something they had never had before.

Erin took them to town and they wandered around through neighborhoods and had fun, fun, fun.

Next year they would like to do a haunted trail through the woods here at the farm. I hope they do. We once did a Haunted Hayride here which was awesome, though I have no pictures. Perhaps the younger generation can revive the tradition. They certainly have enough energy.

The day after Halloween I took down all the decorations and by 9:30 a.m. it was all boxed up and ready to be stored. Was ready for that as it had been up a long time.

I finished the third crack in the sidewalk and really love the mirrors. Then I sorted and put away the tools and supplies deciding to wait and see how it holds up to freezing and thawing during the winter. There are three more cracks that if the first ones don't pop out I will do in the spring. Right now I can't see any of it anyway because of all the leaves.
Today I look forward to the husband cooking his famous fried chicken for Sunday dinner and seeing quite a few of the family. Then it's on to grandson Tai's birthday and then Turkey Day coming soon after.

Started reading "Strangers on a Train," by Patricia Highsmith, an older book, but not bad though a little wordy. Was excited to find "Case Histories" based on the Kste Atkinson book I just finished on Amazon Prime. I am watching it, always interesting to see what happens when the written word gets turned into video.

Had to laugh at myself this morning when I turned the clocks forward instead of back. OOPS...

Oh COOL! Everyone looks great :)

And grr I wrote a story called 'Strangers on a Train' once *lol* I didn't know there already was one.

They sure enjoyed it, and my daughter loved painting on them.

Yep, there is a book, written before you were born - 1950.

GRR--your Hallowe'en card just made it back to me :(
I was one number off on your postal code. o_O

I'm still gonna send it to you if you don't mind it being so late <3

Oh damn, I need to get that book! :)

Sure I want it, how sweet of you. I am lousy about sending cards, just so you know, but I love getting mail.

I will send you the book when I finish it, how's that?

Omg I wear the 'ugly' (beautiful!!) socks once a week and think of you and enjoy the warmth! You totally get a pass on cards hahaha ;)

Sounds awesome! With the rotating postal strike happening here maybe don't send anything until after I move? I should actually make a post about that now...

this looks so fun! I love your description, and that you were able to celebrate with them!

It was fun for sure, was missing having no little ones to take trick or treating and then the big kids more than made up for that.
Nov. 6th, 2018 12:13 pm (UTC)
Hooray for teenagers!
Nov. 6th, 2018 09:20 pm (UTC)
It is good to be able to say that!!
Nov. 8th, 2018 12:01 pm (UTC)
Yes! I like kids of all ages, from babies right up to teenagers. I like young adults, too. I think teenagers get a bad rap.
Nov. 8th, 2018 12:22 pm (UTC)
I've never been crazy for babies, but like them more as time moves on. At least my bunch of teens are very cool, love em.

New born babies are to die for, then they go through a boring stage. My favourite stage is between one and two years. Your munch of teens sounds very nice.
