I can’t believe it’s the end of October. As this post goes live, I will be in a truck, heading toward Ohio with 5 crazy monkeys along for the ride. I must be crazy! But, when family and friends live so far away, you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do!
We picked this weekend to head back to Ohio simply because of Halloween. I love Halloween. Not the gory, gross side of it, but the silly, fun, CANDY part of it. Where we live in GA, Trick-or-Treating just isn’t feasible.When the houses are half a mile apart, and each driveway is about half a mile long, you could do 2 houses and be pooped. Our first 2 years down here, we tried to be like the locals. Each year, all the kids head to town, dressed in their finest, and walk from table to table that businesses have set up, and get your candy. YAWN. (Oops. Sorry. Did I say that out loud?)
It’s just not what I’m used to. The best part about Halloween is getting all dressed up, and freezing your butt off as you run from house to house to get your candy. Sometimes you know the people, other times you couldn’t care less. You’re just there for the candy!
So, I’m packing up my crew and heading North for some good old fashioned Trick-or-Treating. And I can’t wait. We’re headed to our old neighborhood, and it’ll be fun to see our old neighbors again.
Our costumes are packed, and I’ll have Dorothy (Lucy), the Wicked Witch (Ashley), the Lion (Parker), the Scarecrow (Jace), and the Tin Man (Zander) along with me. I can’t wait to show them off!
Ya’all be good, and when I get back, I promise to have lots of pictures to show you.
And don’t worry – there will still be LOTS going on over here on the blog. I’ll make sure there’s something new for you to read every day while I’m gone. So, visit often. Lord only knows what you may read on here while I’m gone. And I won’t have internet access, so I’m praying everything goes smoothly!
Wish me luck! I’ll see you soon!
