A Glimpse of Halloween '09

The snow melted, the sun came out, and the moon rose up almost full,

a perfect Halloween was in the making, as I went to fill the treat bowl.


As the kitchen filled up with smells of spices and treats,

Mommy made "Pumpkin Gooey Cake," for later to eat.


Daddy put on costumes, but nothing too goofy, a Jester and a Clone Trooper

as the streets filled with all things spooky.


With cold fingers and toes the kids made the neighborhood rounds,

with giggles and shouts and energy in abounds.

As the moon lit our path we drove North and into the trees, steadying for the biggest treat of our Halloween Eve.

Over the gravel and around the bend, we soon delighted in the decorating of Amy, my "all things fun" friend.

(Nicki, Heather, Shawn, Amy (our fab hostess), Vicky ( the scariest dressed of all... a middle aged housewife!)

With "most" every one decked out in their wicked best, who would win the prize for the best dressed?

With midnight looming and young boys yawning, we departed for home with a new day dawning.

And I fortunately woke up with not a rhyme in my bones, but thanks for suffering through.

Our sincere thanks to The Fullmer's for the festive and fun-filled evening!!

  3. Bonnie, thanks :) Always so good to have you here!

    Gitz, by the time I figured out I had started rhyming, I was half way through and then my sluggish brain just wouldn't stop. Hard not to be fun with such fun people to hang out with :)

  4. Looks like everyone had a fun time. Hey, no snow!!!!

    If you want any info on "trunk or treat" events just google it. My daughter's church also does a similar event in Duluth, MN (minus the cars)called harvest party. I'm glad churches do alternative halloween parties for kids.

  6. I'm sorry about the deletion, Vicky. (Leave it to me to come in here and 'goof' up your comment section with a "Deleted Comment"....sigh...but I had tooo many typos in that one to leave it. Soooo, I'll try again. :))) )

    Great blog!!...and you are a terrific middle aged housewife...(you look younger than middle aged my friend!)
    I think that it's neat that we looked at that same moon last night....all the way down here in the South....we gazed at that same beautiful moon. (It was exceptionally pretty last night.)
    Life is good.
    It looks like all of you had the best time. Love the smiles. It's what the world needs more of. (Pardon the preposition at the end of that sentence...some sentences just SHOULD end with them!)
    Hugs and smiles to you from Jackie
