I've only bought one of his costumes and that was a fireman. The most difficult one was Joseph's Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I bought the video for me to enjoy and he got hooked on it when he was 6 or 7 years old. I know I have pics of it somewhere. I'm still going thru pictures. I really enjoyed making them, but he doesn't treat or treat anymore.

my husband used to put out a pumpkin with a speaker in it. then he would wait behind the drapes. he would talk to all the kids. it made us laugh to see how many kids really got into it. specially the very small ones. they would talk back. he would say" do u like pumpkin pie?" most would say yes, then he would say " boo hoo, you ate my friends" that was pretty much for those over four. we had such a good time, the best group to scare was the cocky 11 or 12 years old boys. husband would let out blood curdling yowels and watch them fly off our porch. for that group also he would dress as a monster and come out from side of garage and scare them.

i miss it and i very much miss my husband.

We have never had a trick or treater in all the 36 years we've lived here. We all live 5 acres or more apart, if they did come they would probably ask for water. Or maybe directions!

I fondly remember trick or treat when I was a kid. My mom made all my costumes. They were always very creative and I was frequently invited in for pictures, cider and doughnuts. Those were good times.

That was then and this is now. We now have the days of drugs and razor blades in apples, our kids should not take from the treats till checked and teenagers that come to the door with no costume at all and scoff at you if the treats are not good enough. At least that is what we get here. I would love to see some little kids in adorable costumes and enjoy the day for what it used to be. Sorry, not really smiley.
