I admit, this is one of my favorite holidays, and not just because we get a ridiculous number of trick-or-treaters raiding the house for candy every year. We’ve had a run of amazing weather lately, and the trees in our neighborhood have grown up enough to offer some lovely fall colors–I especially like the ruby-red on our front yard tree.
I also love the costumes. Jeff and Tim like to tease me about dressing up as a princess every other year. I’m not alone, though. We get a lot of princesses, and I’m predicting that we see a few Batmans and Avengers this year. Just a feeling.
So, we’ve got flickering, blood-red lights draped on our front porch, skulls by the walkway, and some glowing eyes to put in the window. I’ve already had some caramel apple cider, although I haven’t had anything pumpkin-flavored yet. Have to remedy that.
It’s a good time of year.
