Halloween Eve

What do you like to do for Halloween?  Do you dress up?  Mr. Giggles and I love Halloween and we used to have parties every year.  We had so much fun.  Most of the time we would have them at our lakehouse which has been the location of many many parties over the years starting when my Mom was younger.  I have heard so many stories about parties they had at the lake. . . .the haunted trail, outstanding costumes and just lots of fun had by all.  We also used to have parties at church every year and one year we turned the classrooms in the building into a haunted house.  It was so much fun and I think that everyone from church was there.  As we have gotten older, things have changed as they usually do.  We don't have parties anymore because it got to where our friends weren't able to attend because of their kids.  This just makes us aware once again all the things that we are missing out on because of not being able to have kids.  I am sorry if this sounds whiney but it just really makes me see what I am missing as I see and hear what all of my friends are doing tonight.  Anyway, I hope you are all having a good evening.  I am getting ready to head to bed to read and listen to a scary movie!

Today my Aunt and Uncle came up to visit and to help my Dad put in the beautiful front door my Mom had picked out for their house.  They got it put in and it looks awesome.  I had planned on taking a picture of it this afternoon but I forgot.  I really wish she could be here to see it.  This afternoon I did get curtains hung back up in the guest room at my parents house.  I think that I am going to have to get new curtain rods because they painters messed up one of the ones that Mom had used.  I hope to be able to find the quilt that goes on the bed in that room soon.  We put one on the bed but the one Mom had on it looks much better.  Anyway, I will try to get a picture of the door so you can see it and see what good taste Mom had.
