For this round, Judy and Paola wanted us to share our views on Halloween.
Do we celebrate it? If so, what's our favorite part ?
(eating candy is NOT an optional answer...lol)
Please share one (or more) of the following suggestions :
a trick, a treat, a recipe, fav. costume, fav. decoration, fun times..etc...
I have always enjoyed Halloween!
When younger, my costumes we always put together with what was on hand - I remember being "Jack be nimble" on year - wearing my mother's dressing gown and carrying a candle.....I also remember making popcorn balls with my aunt and shining apples with my neighbor. Those truly were the 'Good Old Days'!
Since Kyle was born, the tradition has been to Trick or Treat throughout my FIL's neighborhood. When we lived in the apartment, his friends always came with us and now that we live in the 'hood, he goes with his friends that also live here.
Last year, he was a zombie:
This year, he and four of his friends will be the Teen Titans (will update you with a picture when it happens).
Since I loved the kit that Paola sent, I went to town with projects and created not only a card, but a couple gifts as well!
