Adorable great nephew with pumpkin carved by his dad.

I love Halloween.  What’s not to love about a holiday that lets you run around after dark, eat chocolate and dress in a costume, and I just had to ask permission to post this picture, from my nephew, because it is just the cutest picture on earth  today.

Beside the adorable baby, in the picture above, we have an awesomely carved pumpkin eating a pumpkin.  That should win an award somewhere. Obviously, I am proud of my great nephew and lovely significant other, sorry I did not mention you earlier.  You are a dear and should not be forgotten.

Since I am totally messed up as far as my photos (Yes, rubbermaids full that I am sorting), I am posting a couple of Halloween pictures that are not of the best quality but at least new to this blog.  I would like to post the one of my Master’s Daughter, who I first took trick or treating when she was eight months old, but who knows which Rubbermaid it is in?

EMT Dragon and Gaffer Knight

You have seen this dragon costume last year when it was a photo of my oldest grandson and his mother, my Master’s Daughter, who created some fantastic costumes for her boys and let her nephews borrow them.

And, even when their aunt did not supply costumes, they found a way to create them.  This is EMT, Jake in the middle and Gaffer to the right.  The goal was to create armor out of blue jeans.

This is seriously scary JRock (a/k/a)JRockGuitarMan in what can only be described as a military poster shot.

I am sure you are all ready to move on, after my week of Halloween posts.  So, I shall end the week, although there are plenty of parties going on this weekend, I am sure, with the a costume picture of me, that is as scary as I get.  And, no, it is not of me as Germaine Greer.  Now that, would be scary.  Although, I am with a friend of a friend.

And, since I took forty-six pictures last night, as they tried on costumes and changed them and were generally acting NOT their age, I have to share a couple more with you.


This is EMT Guy (he’s too old for EMT boy, well, except on Halloween) and his statement last night was, “364 days of the year, I dress to fit in. Tomorrow, I’m dressin’ like I want.”

It is that time of year again. It is a time for teens, and adults, to be children and play dress-up.  This is truly one of my favorite holidays.   When I was a girl, mom would stay home and hand out treats and dad would drive me, from our rural home, to Griffith, where the houses were close together.  He would park at the end of the block and watch me go up one side and down the other.  When I got back to the car, dad got to check out the candy and I got back in the car for the next block.

 

It is amazing how everyone is a friend on Halloween.  I was Trick or Treating in a different school district and I always discovered a kid or two to run and laugh with. Including the year I met that awesome Zorro.  What’s not to love?  There’s dress-up and pretend, being out after dark, being let out of your own yard (for me that was a big adventure) and there was candy; specifically, chocolate.  

 

The two boys left at home, in my house, had never “done” Halloween before they moved in with us.  They were really excited about the school parties the first year they were here and ended up Trick or Treating. EMT boy won school award for the scariest costume.  It was a strange mix of mask, green fake fur and such.  I thought it was kind of funny and so did he.   It is accepted for teens to trick or treat in our town.  Of course, I think the homeowners have decided it beats the alternative. 

 

These guys though, were like two little kids their first year here.  Any time I found a cheap costume, I started picking them up.  They now should have (I say should as at time the stuff is all over the house) two rubbermaids of stuff:  phony teeth, makeup, chains, hooks, wigs, capes, and the whole deal.  After that first Halloween, we went to about four stores and picked up a bunch of sale stuff.  It was their absolute favorite Christmas gift.  Every once in a while they will still just surprise us, in the middle of the summer, when they come up the stairs in mask and costume.

 

You know, it’s a great escape.  I hope they never outgrow it.  Laughter is one key to good health and if we could all retain that playful attitude we could enrich our lives and those around us.
