I know it’s early, but I can never wait for Halloween.
For years I made costumes for the kids, bought candy, waited, waited, waited, and finally .. it would be time for the costumes to come out. I baked big dinners for Halloween night, or put on a crock put stew, so we could eat quickly, getting ready for the big night with ghosts and goblins around our door, holding plastic pumpkins or old pillow cases for candy.
And now, all these years later, I have to admit, I think I was probably the one who loved Halloween most of all. Because now the kids are gone and I still urge my husband to go hang out halloween lights on the front porch, put a big orange bulb in the light fixture next to the door, and always, always buy far too much candy, in advance.
Yup. I’m the culprit here. Some things we can’t quite leave behind.
