Happy Halloween, or whatever you want to call it, everyone! We are not trick-or-treating this year, though we have never missed a year yet! Even when all three boys had Chickenpox, we hit the road dressed in scary long-sleeved hooded costumes and calamine lotion. Sharon and Mikey did arrive fully costumed, for a quick glass of wine, but I think Halloween was just too close to the long weekend and we are all partied out. Max even put on normal, matching cotton plaid jammies to go to bed. Not like him at all!
But this year, Sharon is not having her famous Halloween Party. And we are okay with that. The boys made a token "Awwww, but we wanna!" but not with any kind if oomph or gumption, so I know they aren't that fussed. Though Sam and Max did streak naked through the dark garden to holler "Dad says Skype him now! Urgent!" While I was attempting to have a conversation with Mum and Dad next door.
Does running naked through the bush with a torchlight, flashing your white bottom at your grandparents, count as a Halloween Trick? Please advise! Oh, and in case you were wondering, we don't expect any trick-or-treaters here. For that, we would need to go to town!
I love a good ghost story, don't you? Well, check these out! My favorite Bloggy Friends have written some REALLY good ones, and most of these stories are true.
