To be little

I really like Halloween, when I was little my folks really had fun with holidays and Halloween was no different. I almost always had one of the coolest costumes and I can remember what I was for a bunch of them... One year I was a roller skating cat. That year I was also in "My Fair Lady" at the old Promise Valley Playhouse.. I remember going trick-or-treating really late, after the play was over, but my momma was a trooper and took me until I was tired. I got to be one of the best witches ever.. I have looked for pictures of myself in that costume, but I must have been too excited to hold still. It was a huge head made out of foam. I think my dad stayed up most of the night trying to finish it for me... It was pretty amazing..In Washington, we went trick-or-treating with a neighbor (brother Fischer I think) and he made it super fun.. The last time I went trick-or-treating for myself was when we had Japanese exchange students. They had never gone before, everyone kept saying "aren't you a little old for this" Good thing we had a good excuse.. I was way too old but it was so much fun. So anyway, tomorrow we do all our carving, treating, and costuming.... I hope my kids love it as much as me... I still haven't taken their pictures in their costumes... Tomorrow....
