Happy Halloween!

Enter If You Dare!
We either get the kids crying because they are scared or laughing and having fun!  One year the sparrows who live in the ivy on the front of the house started flying around!  There were three teenage girls who thought they were bats!  Perfect!

P.S.  We had 20 brave souls come to the door.  The best comments of the night were from one of the dads who said, "You have your own adventure here!"  A little girl asked me, "What are you supposed to be?"  I'm the candy giver, I told her!  We had kids who wanted to volunteer in our garden next summer!  We will see if they show up.  I should have taken names!  Then if that were not enough, "our cat" came and sat on the walk like an Egyptian mummy cat.  I didn't have my camera handy and it ran when a child approached.  Here is a link to a previous post about the cat if you missed it!  Hope you had a lot of kids and that you did not run out of treats.  The first year we had 80 kids and we were handing out Hall's cough drops at the end!  It was bad!  Now we have leftovers!  Not always a good thing!

P.S. My granddaughter and I saw Christmas displays in our local fabric store and even she (at age 7) was shocked.

You scared me! Boo to you too! Well, the brave of the brave are happy when they get inside. The littlest ones aren't so sure. Thanks for stopping by, Sharon.
