Welcome to our house, on Halloween night! It's rainy here today, a bit windy but definitely no snow. A nice change and hopefully it will mean we'll see more kids this year than we have the last few years. I'm so excited our little guy, B, can go out in just his costume without a heavy snowsuit and big boots. His first real Halloween where he understands the idea. He's so excited about trick or treating later!
I "borrowed" these shots from my blog post in 2011. But this is is exactly how our house will look tonight, except that our Scarecrow behind the chair is bigger, with a blue shirt and the pumpkin might have a different carving. We still need to do that but we only work this morning, then we're off for the rest of the day. Lots of time to set up the last few items and then carve our big pumpkin!
At dusk, we light our candles and
let the glow lead the kids to our front door.
Inside the house, kids have lots to look at!
Our little collection.
Sadly, Celti will not be at our door this year, wagging her tail at the little creatures who come to our house. We miss her every day but this is the one day that we'll truly be aching in our hearts, as we open our door to give out candy but our little Celti will not be hopping out on to the step to say "hello"!
Wishing you and your family a safe and
