Can you believe it’s already almost mid-September? The kids are back to school, summers almost over and it’s getting cooler. Well, it’s getting a bit cooler here! The leaves on the trees will soon turn red, orange and yellow, lovely in their glorious flaming colors, then they will fall to the ground right around Halloween.
Yes, Halloween. It’ll soon be here, and if you enjoy celebrating the holiday it’s time to begin thinking about what kind of halloween costumes you and your friends or family might want to dress up in.
The last couple of years I haven’t done much for Halloween. Oh, we decorate our house. Some years we decorate more than others, but there’s always some decorations. We buy candy and treats to give out to the kids and occasionally we’ll dress up for Halloween.
I get a kick out of some of the kids Halloween costumes. They are so cute when they come to our door, often in groups of two to twelve! Yes, they do roam the streets in little packs, often with a parent or two in tow. Some kids are really shy and others quite bold. All seem to be quite pleased with themselves if you compliment them on their costumes.
I’ve noticed that some of the parents coming around with their children occasionally have infants with them. A few collect candy for their infants – which I don’t really understand since their babies are too young for most of the treats that are given out. Often when a parent has an infant with them on Halloween, usually while walking with an older child of course, their babies are dressed in infant Halloween costumes. I think those are the most adorable costumes of all. I’m certain that I’ve seen some babies dressed up as lady bugs and sunflowers. I love those costumes.
So what are you planning to dress up as this Halloween? Have you purchased costumes for your kids yet? Are you getting excited?
