Gratitude Sunday–Holidays

Gratitude Sunday

As part of Colline’s Gratitude Project, I would like to say how thankful I am for holidays.  Halloween is just around the corner and I dearly miss the days when my children were still home getting ready for Trick-or-Treat.  I loved carving pumpkins and all the fuss that came at that time of the year.

Everything about the holiday in our home, had to do with family.  With five kids it was always fun to dream up costumes that we could do ourselves.  It took many days of planning and brain storming to come up with ideas that the kids really loved.

Halloween 1991

We always had someone who wanted to be a vampire (Tabitha), or the walking dead (Amy).  Billy lucked out that year and got to dress up like the Cracker Jack guy.

Even our all black Pomeranian, Pu-Chai, got into the holiday.  One year, Tabitha made bat wings we attached to the dog.  He proudly went Trick-or-Treating with the kids showing off his wings.  No matter what, we always had fun.

Even today, my artistic daughter Tabitha still loves to dress up and attend Halloween parties.  Her Mexican Day of the Dead costume is dead-on!  (No pun intended). Smile  I plan on giving out candy on Halloween night.  What do you do to celebrate the holiday?

Thanks for creeping by to see what scary things I am up to.  I’ll see you again,
