no boos here......

we don't
Halloween here
always hated it
of course when the kids were little
lots of inventive costumes
pirates were the most favoured and the easiest
lots of candy lots of screaming and running around
tricking and treating around the neighbourhood
on foot or mostly in the back of someones truck
with me at the wheel driving at 2 mph
when they got older it was
3 mph so they could run and jump on
really safe and sound
but hey
it was Halloween
so you did dumb stuff
the last one I remember was when son #1 dressed up in a dress of mine
asked me to make him up
style his hair
oh and did I have some girly shoes he could borrow
after that
it's all a blank!!!!!!
he is a handsome man
he was a beautiful child
a cute woman he
so anyway
tonight the lights will be dimmed and the drapes drawn early
and even if someone comes
which they haven't done for ages
we will not
" be at home"
 hu hummmmm!!!!

Teresa asked me to show how to do the
double knitting I mentioned
so I will post that later
I started doing it this morning

and got into a right old silly mood
as a second

hootie cutie came into being

oh my so many pretty eyes....

silly we can do
in spades

peek a boo...
I see you....

me too...


Papa can you hear us?????

OK I'll get myself together and be back with some sanity
need to do a lot of editing with the photos as the light is
there is no light....
so I'll see you later maybe

Hi Marilyn, I heard some places got 13-17 inches of snow. Amazing! your little hoot owl is just the cutest. Love how you are just able to whip something up. I'm just trying to keep up around here and then get very grumpy when I don't have "me" time! :/ Hope your day is great. Tammy

Noooo, don't be back with sanity - I love this! You make me laugh. I just realized something today about Halloween. When I grew up we didn't have it, it has arrived here quite recently. (And I hate it too!) But as you hear about American kids dressed as pirates, pink bears and whatever, the only thing you see here is devils, witches, ghosts and vampires. If it isn't scary it isn't Halloween. I'm glad my kids didn't want to go this year. But I would have loved to see a picture of your son (or should I say daughter?). We had a costume party in church once, and almost every boy came dressed up as a girl. One uglier than the other. Except for one guy. As my husband puts it: "He was scary 'cause he actually looked great!" :D Think I will end my novel here... ;) Hugs!

One year, the boy next door came round to play with my daughter on Halloween. They dressed up as witches and wizards and went back to knock on his mother's door. She didn't recognise them and told them to go away!!! It was only his dog that recognised him, and stopped his Mum from shutting the door on them!
