Getting Ready for Tricks or Treats

Halloween at our House

Well, we finally found a couple of pumpkins for our porch, and the little scarecrows are ready to greet the kids.  We have to leave as much room as we can on the porch because it crowds up with anywhere from 5 to 15 ghouls at one time.  So, over the past few years, we've downsized on the decorations.  And we have our Grandson Shawn (Scooter, etc.) this weekend, so this could be very interesting.  Our plan is to take him to just 3 or 4 houses on our street and let him look at some of the other goblins along the way.  But it gets so crowded with cars and kids walking around that we'll have to be extra careful and really hold on to him.  And later, maybe he'll help me pass out candy and pose for some pictures.  And then, in a day or two I'll have to close the vault on my Halloween memories, until this time next year.

Here is a little Halloween poem I scribbled out a few minutes ago while dodging Shawn and his trike!  I just wanted to leave you with a few last haunting tips- OH, and, PLEASE be safe tonite.  If I get a chance, OH, but probably not-have to go to work tomorrow and tonite will be so busy...

"Do You Believe?" 
The spirits are stirring-they're anxious to leave.
And spiders are working-on webs they must weave.
Do beware of the goblins-OH! What foul they do heave!
Watch out!  The Witches are brewing, on this Hallow's Eve!
