halloween, this year...

I want to wish you a Happy Halloween!
but..
I'm feeling like the Scrooge of Halloween.
BOOhumbug.
One is cleaning her room, and the other is working on a science project. And if these tasks are not completed soon?  No treats, no tricks, no argument.
I wish I had just put my foot down and told them they were just too old to go trick-or-treating... but I never got around to it. I only hoped that no talk of it meant they weren't planning on it.
And I'm wondering... if the pumpkin carving, or lack there of, is going to have the same outcome.
I'm kind of longing for the days where there were no questions, no wondering... just last minute creating.

But I guess, if their projects are completed, there will be plenty of that last minute creating...

My girl went to a party Friday night so it's not even on our radar tonight. And the porch light is OFF. And you thought YOU were a scrooge? LOL

Love your Halloween mask! I also know you enjoyed your walk down memory lane! The pictures of the kids from yesteryear are priceless! Hope their work was completed in time to trick or treat!
