Happy Halloween...............

Halloween to me is happy memories - memories of three little girls and their trips around the neighborhood, the different costumes we made, our Halloween party where our dog ate all the props.  Then there was the one where the girls were all gathered around a candle having a "séance" and Brenda snuck outside and scratched on the window screen.  Have you ever heard 15 hyperactive girls all scream at the same time??? My ears still hurt to think about it. 

Memories of when I was a little girl and Mother loved to help us get dressed up for the big night.  We were usually gypsies and got to wear lipstick and go through Mother's jewelry box and adorn ourselves until we were dripping with "jewels".  Paper mache (!!!!) jack-o-lanterns with real(!!!) candles.  Horrors! I remember trying to keep mine burning in the wind.   And the masks that never fit my face so I always had to look out of one eye hole.
  
The laughter, the fun times all gone now.  The only thing left is the memories and they can be taken out, dusted off, smiled at, chuckled about and enjoyed for another year.    Diane
