Halloween Tradition

 

Well not really sure if we can call it a tradition BUT it’s something we’ve done for two years in a row! It’s getting close to becoming a tradition I guess.

For the last  two years my neighbor and close friend (I know, how lucky am I) sit in my front yard and pass out candy together. We chat, laugh, and oh and aw over all the little cuties. Although this year we had lots of older kids  (teenagers) sans costumes.

Kent I laid down a ground rule for our future children. We’re cool with them trick-or-treating as long as they want but they must ALWAYS wear a costume or we won’t let them go. It sounds mean but I think that’s the price you pay as a trick or treater. You get free candy and in return the passer-outer (do you like that) gets to see you dressed up! It’s only fair!

Ninja even got in on the action. He was a bubble bee and a mighty cute one at that!

Oh Mrs. Marsh May (that’s my nick name for her). She calls me Kendra Lou.
I just love this girl to pieces! She is such a special friend. I don’t think I could have picked a better neighbor myself. I know I’ve said that a million times but it’s true!  

It was fun dressing up! We felt a little like superstars. We had our pictures taken with random strangers and the kids excited to see the costumes. I guess my costume was a good choice because the elementary kids are learning about Cat and the Hat in school right now. They were all excited to tell me about it. 

 

I think I’m going to be a Disney princess next year!

Ps…..The Cat and the Hat costume was browed from Mrs. Marsha May. It was her Halloween costume when she was in the 7th grade! Isn’t that neat! I wish I would have hung onto some of my old costumes.

  1. I LOVE your costume!!! Ninja looks adorable too! I have great neighbors too. We all sit outside & hand out candy & totally agree with you about the costumes. We had so many rude kids with pillow cases that weren't dressed. Annoying!!
