What Halloween Means To Me

What does Halloween mean to me?

Memories.  Lots and lots of memories!

My version of "Swan Lake!"  
I was also wearing toe shoes!

We also loved to party back then!

Alex's first Trick or Treat. 
I made this devil costume out of his pajamas and boots and added a belt, cape and mask!
Didn't have a lot of money in those days!
Likewise, I made this costume too!
And we both made our own costumes here!
Now, see if you can guess what characters these are.
(I will give you some hints)! 

Sing, Christine!

You can't really see me now, can you, Elwood?

Would you like a piece of my wedding cake, Pip?

No, the "A" isn't my grade for my English paper on Hawthorne!

There is a cuckoo and there is a nest but it's unclear who the cuckoo is.

"No more wire hangers!"

"Fifteen men on a dead man's chest, yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!"

"Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art though Romeo?"

"I'm right here, Juliet!"

"Fiddle-dee-dee!  I can't think about this now. I will think about it tomorrow!"

I wonder how long I am going to have to live on this here prairie in this here little house.

Do you have a spliff, mon?

"I'm called little Buttercup, sweet little Buttercup..."

No one knows what this one is about, but he sure is cute, isn't he?

And speaking of cute, nothing like a couple of little grandsons dressed to ride the ponies!
Now that Hubby and I are older, and the kids are gone, and we don't live in a place where much trick or treating goes on, Halloween doesn't have quite the meaning it once did.
But we still have our memories!
Happy Halloween everyone!

  1. Did we dress up at the Lakeport Library?

    1. I can't remember. That was a long, long time ago but I would imagine we did!
