What do you think of when you think of Halloween? When I think of this holiday, I think of my kids. My two boys are too grown up now to participate. My oldest is 19. He’s got a full time job and my youngest just started high school. He has no interest in Halloween anymore.
But man the fun we had with those boys. My husband was always the one who took the boys out and me and our late German Shepherd, Ruby, would answer the door. Ruby would greet every single kid. She loved them and they always seemed to love her.
This year, we’ll be turning out the lights. Without our own little munchkins to get excited for, we’ve sort of lost our spark for it. We’ve also got two “door attackers.” Our ferocious duo, Misty the Lab and Tiger the Chihuahua. Any time someone comes to the door, Misty goes running, growling and barking. She’s not a very big dog, on the small side for a Lab, but she’s got a mean-sounding bark. She’s stopped people in their tracks four feet from the door. I don’t have the heart to tell them that should they actually come INside, she’d run the other direction. lol
|Miss Ruby Jewels. We miss her.|
But I have to admit the idea of having to deal with that every time the doorbell rings gives me a headache. So, we’re closing up shop and eating our candy! lol I know, bah-humbug, right?
But we had fun, back in the day. I remember when my boys were so little they were afraid to go trick-or-treating. Matthew, the 19 year old, would cry and/or out and out refuse to go up to some houses. You know, I miss those days.
Of course, once they got to be around 10 or so, the real fun began. Picking out costumes. Of course, with boys, it was scary stuff and ninjas. Adam was usually some form of a ninja and Matthew loved trying to scare people. My husband even got into one year. What started out as an inside joke ended up with him wearing a costume as he took the boys out. Scared some little kids that night I heard later. Some parents, too. lol
What about you? What are some of your favorite Halloween memories?
