We were still living in Liverpool when we became grandparents. We also gained a daughter-in-law who was born Oct. 31 so Halloween became a double celebration. Mike & Alex will always associate Halloween with birthday cake. Mike's first year of trick or treating was around our neighborhood.
kid's night. It's been years since I've made a Halloween costume. I was with Bean when she bought Sprout and Twig their costumes this year and I hope that they stop out for their first ever night of trick or treating.
I do have 100+ other kids at work each day who are busy talking about the upcoming parties that they'll be attending, the costumes that they'll wear and where they'll be going trick or treating. This year, at work, we're having a combination trick or treat - school bus safety event that I'm hoping will become and annual thing. It has me a little excited about Halloween this year. Who knows, if it goes well I may make myself a costume for next year.
This is the third in a series of Halloween memories.
