Spooky Satrday Night - Happy Place Challenge Day 20

Spooks and ghouls visited us last night - and yes I know that it is not Halloween until Tuesday night!

We were lucky enough to be invited to a "street festival" of sorts a couple of suburbs over by some very good friends.  What a great experience it was as an introduction to Halloween for the kids.  They all dressed up (there were 6 kids ranging in age from 3.5 to almost 12) and they wandered from house to house filling up their loot buckets.  Smiles all round... and way to many treats in their buckets.

It was fantastic!

Then, as if that wasn't enough, everyone rocked back here to have a "party".  My kids had decorated the rumpus room with bats and spiders and webs (and carefully cultivated dust) and the excitement was palpable.

The simple dinners really are the best.  We had a nice, easy BBQ after the kids had played.  They then watched "Scooby Doo 2" while we (the adults) chatted happily upstairs.  It was a great night.  M2 not in bed until after 10.00 - in his words "AWESOME".  Staying up late is so exciting when you are 7!

A great mix of friends and family, laughter and memories being made.

Today's writing is not my best, sorry if it is a bit boring, but I am tired after such a spooky night!  Thank you to everyone involved.  I think we just started a tradition xxx


  1. what is not to love about Halloween. So much fun.

  2. I was never a big fan of Halloween but I am joining in tonight, may have been the lolly factor that swang it for me - Free lollies yay :)
