It’s never too early to begin thinking about upcoming “events” and Halloween will be here before you know it. Some of the stuff about Halloween I’m not crazy about – like that doorbell ringing all night which sends me down to my safe zone in the basement every time. BUT, sometimes I sit on the very top step of the basement stairs with the door open just enough I can peek, and when the kids are standing there saying “Trick or Treat!” I can see them! I like all their wacky costumes. My favorite is the teeny, tiny kids who can barely say “Trick or Treat” but look so cute in their pumpkin outfits or ghost get-ups.
One of my most favorite things is that Mom and Dad carve a pumpkin that’s JUST FOR ME every Halloween. Here’s last year’s and you can see why I like it so much!
We’ve lived here long enough that all the kids in the neighborhood know we always have a cat pumpkin at our house…..they think it’s pretty cool (and so do I!).
One year we were really surprised when the doorbell rang on Halloween. Mom opened the door and there were two girls on horses all dressed up. They’d come over from one of the farms around here and were dressed up like princesses or ladies of the court or something…..they were trick-or-treating in reverse though because they were handing out candy – not asking for any treats! How cool is that anyway? Mom gave them some treats anyway and petted the horses then off the girls went to the next house. They were also offering little rides around the yard to any kids living in the houses (I thought about asking if I could ride but changed my mind…..those horses were BIG!).
So – anyway – I’m trying to decide what to be this year for Halloween. Thinking it might be fun to be a dog….ARF.
