Halloween On A Temp Basis.

So, we have been living out of suitcases for well over a month. And I mean really living. Work, school etc. That’s a long time. Just the same we gotta keep on with all this living don’t we? There is nothing we can do about that.

Still, I was kicking myself for not preparing the kids Halloween costumes long ago and having them packed in our cases waiting for wear. I have forgiven myself and realized that there is only so much planning ahead a gal can do sometimes. The kids have forgiven me too because we have pieced together some cool costumes from clearance isles and discount bins and a cardboard box on the sidewalk labeled “Boy Costumes-$10.00 and under…”

“Hey! I have boys!” That is exactly what my frazzled-Halloween-panicked brain said as I pulled over. Add a marked down costume makeup kit to the mix and I ended up with some happy Trick-Or-Treaters.

Yup. We already went Trick-Or-Treating and we are going again tomorrow. We went downtown for the local business event which was fun and crazy. Right up the kid’s alley. The small town feel and neighborly hellos that went on all around us were right up this mama’s alley. I hope someday soon, I will be greeting my neighbors and catching up on things as well. This is my town now too right?

Each day it feels more and more so.

Now, from the sweetest “Mother Nature Fairy” in Kodiak and the zombiest Darth Vadar ever and from my peppy but insistently scary Ghost...

Happy, Happy Halloween!


  1. I'm glad you got there safely. I can't wait to see more pics of your new scenery!

  2. Thanks! We are busy taking pictures that we can't wait to share. I also can't wait to get our computer so I can catch up in the blog world, I miss it. Happy Fall!
