Happy Halloween: Get Your Gnome On
Hope you had a lovely Halloween celebration! Ours was fantastic, it was the perfect Autumn day. After such nasty weather we finally got one day to shine golden as the sun.
Celebrating with friends, it was a day filled with good food, and stories - and sweets.
And I had a little trick up my sleeve...
Gnomes!! Billy, my sister Deanna and I were garden gnomes! Our hats were over 4 feet tall... and completely awesome. This year I decided I was going to test the waters and head out around the neighborhood with my candy sack. It worked! No one thought I was too old!
The first house we went to had this amazing gnome patch, so naturally we fit right in:) Ok so line of the night: We show up at a house, ring the bell, shout "Trick - or - Treat!!" and a couple ladies come to the door. The one that was probably in her 60's says with all sincerity "Oh, maybe these big kids would like a glass of our rum punch!" and the younger woman scoffs and says "NO! You can't give teenagers rum punch!!" We all looked at each other and laughed a good one, and then Billy pipes up and says "I'm turning 30 in January!" Hahaha! And THAT is the truth.
We may of felt a little silly at times, trying to trick-or-treat, seeing as how we definitely are WAY past the age, but my loot bag would tell me otherwise. The LOOT. Feast your eyes on that!
Hope your holiday was hauntingly amazing,
