There’s not much I like about Halloween anymore. As a child I loved Halloween because…like most children…I enjoyed dressing up…going door to door…the innocent decorations. Now a days Halloween has become Horrorween. There are not so many cute pumpkins and Casper's. Some of the stuff out there…even in my neighborhood is down right scary!
I have always enjoyed dressing up for Halloween. That’s about all I like about this day…I don’t even like to think of it as a holiday. For years before John came along I would dress up like SpongeBob, pass out SpongeBob candy & home made popcorn balls. I even went as far as to have a bubble maker & the SpongeBob theme music playing when the tricker-treaters would ring my bell. The kids always had a good laugh when they would see me – that’s what it was all about – why I would make a fool of myself!! To this day I will have the same kids come by and ask about SpongeBob…and the popcorn balls!
Now it is my turn to have fun with John…before he gets a chance to decide what he wants to be!!
His first Halloween he was two months old and I dressed him as a Tootsie Roll….and passed out Tootsie Rolls!
Last year he was a Hare…most appropriately…and I passed out candy in the shape of a carrot. ( Great picture-thanks LeeLee!)
This year John is Hitman Hare! I found some candy called “sour punch” – it looks like someone is getting punch in the face on the package! Everyone thinks Randy picked this costume but actually I picked it out. Randy and I both love boxing and watch it almost every Saturday night. I am going to dress up as the ring girl and Randy is going as Michael Buffer. Should be fun!
Hope you have a great Friday….and Happy Halloween!
