How clever is this invitation? My sister Andrea makes the Halloween Party invites each year, and this year she may have outdone herself. I don't know how she does it. Most of us are quite familiar with the Ouija board, having had them when we were kids. I love the little magic triangle indicator, don't you? Underneath it is the address of the party, which I thought wise not to include, and the instruction "Don't be caught dead without a costume". Love it.
I am spending today getting ready for the Big Day. Halloween in my neighborhood is very serious. People bring their children from miles away just to roam the streets in my subdivision and collect candy. Last year we got 286 trick or treaters. I am serious. I counted.
So, preparations need to be made. 300 pieces of candy? Check. Decorations outside? Check.
Yes, I have an orange lighted spider web in my front window. I am that person. I am telling you, we go all out around here.
Table set? Check.
Grandpa and I are going to be on our own tomorrow to pass out the candy. My husband is working and can't make it home during the middle of the week. So, after a day of doctor's appointments, Grandpa and I will come home, have pumpkin soup, and position ourselves outside at a table in the driveway to greet the Halloween Hoards. Can't have them ringing the doorbell because Ozzie goes insane each and every time. We sit out there all bundled up, surrounded by candles and candy, and sip our tea and compliment all the children on their costumes.
So, just when am I going to finish my Halloween 1904 quilt top, you ask? Hmmm. Well, I guess I had better get going on that right now!
