Happy Thankful and Poetic Thursday! First up is thankfuls………………then we’ll share Angel Sammy’s poem for the week. When Halloween rolls around I have to admit I’m always very thankful that I have a home to be safe and sound in. All the animals who are living the life of a feral or are homeless for reason come to mind when scary things are happening like Halloween or July 4th. Both can be noisy and both can be frightening. Not for me – I can watch the little kids at the front door from the safety of my home. That’s a BIG THANKFUL for this time of year.
Angel Sammy’s poem which had a cute sort of Halloween costume theme is below. If you wrote a poem to go with the photo let us know – we love to reach everyone’s poetry on Poetry Thursday!

Hello Poetry Fans! Time to share our poems……….
The photo I gave you last Thursday for inspiration for today’s poem was chosen because it popped up when I searched for “Cute Halloween Photos” – and it IS cute isn’t it. Those two little kids look beyond adorable. Matching twin costumes – if you remember “The Carol Burnett Show” you remember the character “Mama”………these two cuties are double Mamas!
Here’s the photo I gave you and my poem follows………….

Oh my goodness will you lookie there!
Two little Grannies with matching hair!
Looking at the camera without a clue
Double adorable – “precious times two” !
It will be many years ahead before you are Grannies
Your hips will be wide without diapers on your fannies!
Your hair will be gray not from yarn but from years
No giggles in the mirror, instead there may be tears….
The age of innocence will be oh so far behind
But that “little girl inside” will remain…..and be kind.
Kids grow up so quickly. One day these two will see this photo and laugh…….and probably NOT remember this photo session. But it will be a treasure to have. My Mom has photos of herself in Halloween costumes when she could barely walk. Her Mom would dress her up as a gypsy with odds and ends from her closet. It was an easy costume and little kids are pretty flexible about what they wear so it worked out just fine. These two in the photo aren’t minding the glasses or the wigs or anything else – they just look ADORABLE.
If you’re taking your kids out tonight for Halloween, have fun. Be on the alert……….don’t stay out too late……….watch out for wandering animals………take photos – one day they will be SO MUCH FUN to share……….just like this photo of the two little kids above!
Speaking of Halloween – I just HAVE to share this photo of one of Teddy’s friends named Sawyer – one of the Kitties Blue living at The Cat On My Head. Sawyer missed the deadline to send in his Halloween costume photo for our Teaserween posts but the costume is so darn cute I thought I’d show it here – talk about a CAT in the PERFECT costume!!!
Good one Sawyer!!!
