Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! This is the first year I will get to see little Trick or Treaters at my door and I couldn't be more excited!

I remember one Halloween my mom made me a Darkwing Duck costume to wear. She still has it too! I doubt any kids would know who Darkwing Duck is now, but I used to love that cartoon. I think the only time my mom really sewed was to make Halloween costumes for my brother and me. It is a little sad to be an adult and not get to go trick or treating anymore. But I am just excited to bring joy to the trick or treaters as I get to hand out candy.

What fun traditions do you have for Halloween? I love decorating the house and of course carving pumpkins. Our front porch has five big pumpkins and two small pumpkins! My brother and I used to sit on the side walk in front of our house and carve our pumpkins. Sometimes he would cover himself in the pumpkin goop and run around the yard, and he was probably in middle school! But it made me laugh and he always tries to make me laugh.

My favorite thing about carving pumpkins was sprinkling cinnamon inside the pumpkin and lighting a candle to make it glow. The smell was incredible! My mom would turn all the lights off so we could really see them and my dad would make scary noises.

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween!
