For those of you who know me personally, you already know that Halloween is my favorite holiday. I am not sure how or when this came about. Maybe its because it's the one day a year that its socially tolerated  to be something you are not. Its actually encouraged. The sad part for me is that I haven't dressed up in years. The last time I dressed up was when we would go to Salem, Massachusetts and raise hell down there for a few days and nights. But now I am too busy baking something, decorating, and trick-or-treating that I don't have the time, or creative energy, to put towards getting into costume. It would be a different story if I were attending a Halloween costume party. You can bet that I would go all out for something like that. For now, I will be going out as mother of Damien and Amar'e.

This year we spent a lot of time visiting family and less time knocking on doors. We were suppose to go to a sweet spot in Gorham so Damien could meet up with his buddies, but we took too long visiting and Amar'e fell asleep. So that put a damper on that. Another sad aspect of this year's Halloween was that we didn't have enough time to carve our last two pumpkins. This was heartbreaking to me. I don't know where the time went. I even took the day before and Halloween off from work to get everything done. Oh well, Andrew is off this weekend and we are going to have a family pumpkin carving party similar to this one here.

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween!

Amar'e in her costume take 2. Its funny because she has never had candy until....
this happened. Amar'e had her first piece of candy. It was a mini Twix without the caramel. Not vegan I know.

And just to think that this was the year we relaxed a bit on going door to door, and he still came home with this.


  1. Australia does not really celebrate Halloween, but I love the idea of dress ups and being able to be someone that you are not


    1. I never knew that Australia doesn't celebrate Halloween. Interesting....I love the idea too! :)
