    Default Night Owl Halloween Party!

    Happy Halloween Night Owls!

    First extra prayers for all of our forum members in need and some special ones to keep a close watch over our Supreme Night Owl Cyndi!

    My Brenna and Joey took Lil' Peter, Kora and Lillyana trick or treating at their friends tonight. The first time we didn't all go together. We had a whole 2 little goblin beggars because it started raining around 4pm and hasn't stopped. When the kids all came back here they were soaked head to toe. A Zombie, Dead Cheerleader (don't tell her she was a zombie, she doesn't like zombies) and a baby blue sea horse.

    Hubby and I had a whole 3 hours to ourselves for the first time since Lil' Peter was born. It was a nice Halloween here.

    So how did you celebrate?

    Please treat others as you would hope others would treat those you love.

    Our weather was cool so we had a fewer kids this year. DH has always loved giving out the treats to the kids every year so I set his wheelchair on our front porch and put a quilt on his lap and made up a thermos of hot chocolate and we sat outside while the kids came around. He had a blast! It was so nice to see him smile so much.

    So now it's all quiet and I'm going thru my Christmas Craft files as the coordinators of the Support Day group Chuck attends has asked me if I could assist with crafts for the clients that come there. I previously taught Sunday School for 15 years so have lots of stuff and I've come to really care for for the others that attend the group with Chuck. I think it will be lots of fun for me also.

    Otherwise, our custom for Halloween is to watch the golden oldie movies such as Frankenstein and the Mummy from the 1940's, just love those movies.

    I had a very lazy day.......kept an eye on the weather this morning. We had tornado warnings but thankfully nothing happened. We have had rain all day & it finally stopped about 5 this evening. So DH & I went out for pizza! We haven't had trick or greater here in about 25 years.....our road is too busy. But I did see two kids dressed like the Duck Dynasty people last night!

    When I was pregnant on bed rest Peter set up a chair for me, plugged in a heater and I passed out the candy to 78 kids. 4 yrs later I did the same for him when he was sick (had to wear a mask) and we had 74 kids. No other year had we ever had more than 50. It was a very special night for each of us. I think what you did for your hubby was great, I am so glad he had fun.

    A quiet Halloween night here too. We only had about 6 trick-or-treaters, not too many young kids in this neighborhood.

    Halloween has made me feel a little nostalgic so I spent part of the evening going through old photo albums, looking for Halloween pictures. I enjoyed my walk down memory lane. I sewed a lot of the kids costumes through the years. I made an adorable mouse costume for my oldest DD, she wore it when she was 4 and then each of her 4 siblings have worn it at some point as well. It's the same for the clown costume, the dragon, the angel, the bunny, the jaguar, the princess, etc. Lots of cute pictures. All of these costumes are packed away in the basement, just waiting for those grandchildren that I hope to have some day.

    Last night our son brought the 3 little ones over for their Halloween bags and treats; Tigger, a Pirate, and a Biker Chick! Seven months, 3 1/2, and 7. Too cute! They took the kids to a few friend's homes tonight. The weather has been cold and rainy, so there weren't too many kids out tonight from what I've heard. We live out of town, so haven't had any trick or treaters here since our kids were young when their friend's parents drove them out here. DH and I ate dinner and then watched a football game. I worked on a quilt top for awhile. Now I am just watching some things that I had on DVR this week; that usually makes me fall asleep.
    I sure hope all is well with Cyndi and her family; pretty serious and scary stuff. Saying a little prayer for their safety. That is all!

    After spending a day at jury duty and finally getting called (!!!!), I came home, made a big pot of winter white chili and we headed out to Puyallup to my sisters house for the evening. She and her husband set up a haunted house in their garage and you should have heard the screams!!! I finally went thru during a brief lull and I can't say I enjoyed myself!

    Came home to hear our neighbor had just come out of kidney transplant surgery, so that was an added treat!

    We were on the other side of the bridge for Em speech therapy appointment, so we headed to Mom's for trick or treat. It was nice. About half of the homes had their lights on, and were the long time residents of the street. It was nice to catchup with them for a few minutes. We went one street over and can tell that they don't get many visitors either. One guy was loading Em's bag and his friend was like, "Give her some more! We hardly ever get anybody down here!" I made him stop with two man-hand sized fist fulls.

    She had fun, and Daddy will eat most of her candy.

    My cold is making progress. I feel like doing more than just sleeping. Hopefully I'll get some stuff done around the house tomorrow! The carpet is in dire need of a visit by the vacuum!

    I'm going to go tuck the red dinosaur in bed, and head there myself.
    Good night all!

    DS wanted to greet the Halloween Trick or Treaters which was OK with me as I have been doing it for 53 years. I went out shopping at the Dollar Store. Spent quite a bit of time choosing 10 different coloring books for my grand nieces and nephews. Family is too big to exchange Christmas gifts but I like to have a little something for the little kids when we get together early in December. Last year it was a Christmas mug with packets of hot chocolate. One year I also gave the parents a little gift of home made jam and one niece in law dubbed me Aunt Jam!

    DH had a class until 4:30 so afterwards we met near Joann's where I was going to use the special Halloween coupons for a little something for my Secret Pal. That didn't work out as I took the envelope with my food shopping list and supermarket coupons and not the one with Joann's. DH and I had an early light dinner, stopped at Costco where I rode around looking for some new dinner ideas but left with a book and a box of mini doughnuts, doughnuts are very tasty. We caught the last of the Trick or Treaters when we got back, still have enough mini chocolates left to keep all 3 of us happy for awhile.
