Of course I had to use a photo of my beautiful daughter in her costume for dress up. This year she was a pumpkin witch. I made part of her costume this year... don't get too excited it was just the tutu part of the skirt. In the photo it is a little messed up because she was doing cartwheels in the front yard.
When I was a little girl, almost every house handed out candy and there were hundreds of kids on every street. While taking my daughter around our neighborhood, we were able to trick or treat about 10 houses... certainly no more than 15... and I would say that there were no more than 30 kids total that we passed. I find it sad that my daughter will never know what Halloween was when I was a kid. Kids nowadays miss out on so much.
Anyways... Candy. She did get plenty of it and some good stuff too... not just tootsie rolls and bubble gum.
Ever since I saw the movie "The Birds" many years ago, it always creeps me out when I see large gatherings of birds. Flocks like this have been gathering on these particular telephone lines for weeks now. I wasn't really thinking prompt when I snapped this photo obviously taken from inside my truck but I couldn't think of any better photo to use for spooky.
The peak of color in my area was this past week and we had some of the most beautiful orange, red, and yellows. I love fall.
