Happy Halloween!!

Halloween has always been one of our favorite holidays.  ALWAYS.

I just painted the living room walls and am getting ready to update the Family Picture Wall with new frames and different photos. I came across this Polaroid of Terry and Laurie which brought back so many memories of past Halloweens.

Over the years it has been our tradition to dress in costume to give out the treats, then to friends house to prank.  Sometimes it was a simple costume like this with Terry looking through their window to scare them. Maybe we left a picture of us on their door know with a cryptic note leaving them to figure out who visited. We never went the same place two years in a row.

Today, I visited here .  Oma was remembering and gave info on Beggar's Night which I found really interesting since we went out on Beggar's Night when I was a kid, but I didn't know exactly what Beggar's Night really was.

What are some of your childhood memories of this night?  It's changed so much over the years.  Everyone is more careful these days with good cause. It seems to me that we were able to enjoy the night a little differently when I was young.

Happy Halloween! I hope there is a good scary movie on tonight!!
