So... I really don't much like Halloween... never have been into the scary or gory kind of stuff and really don't like the focus on blood, death, etc. as we unfortunately see so much of that in the real world and I'd much rather fill my mind and heart with things that are beautiful, good, uplifting, encouraging, etc.
BUT... the one part I've always enjoyed is getting dressed up and so it's been fun over the years helping the kids come up with costumes!! We don't do the typical and in fact, my son's "claim to fame" is that he concocts his own "one-of-a-kind-never-been-seen-before" type costume!! Last year he was an orange crayon all triggered by an orange hat he found and this year, can you guess it????
And my daughter was a "Teeny Bop Rock Star"... all her own clothes actually except the shoes which were a fabulous Value Village find at only $1.99 plus the wig!! She is just way too cute!!!
And my other favourite part of this least favourite holiday of mine??? You guessed it... the chocolate!!!! Now chocolate is definitely sweet, good and very uplifting and so THAT is what I choose to focus on!!!
