Goblins All Gone

Tonight was the big night, as I'm sure everyone knows, when the witches and goblins and ghosts come out and prowl around, begging for treats!

But tonight was quite different than it has been the last so many years in that we had a mere 17 kids come around, all decked out in their imaginary finest.

Usually, we've had at least twice that number and often well over that figure too. Perhaps it was the weather as it was misty, rainy, but thankfully for one small favor -it was warm! Parents at least didn't have to try to fit heavy winter jackets or even snowsuits over their kids in their costumes as has been the case on many a Halloween night in the past!

Because it is now November and with November comes Thanksgiving, I'm going to try something I haven't done for a long, long time here.

I'm going to try my level best to keep on track here and hopefully post something every day from now up through Thanksgiving day and I'm also going to try to put something in each of these upcoming posts for which I am thankful too!

And tonight -what is it that I am choosing in the being thankful realm?

Tonight, I am thankful that we had a warm evening and no concerns at least that kids would get frost bite while out trick or treating!

Nice job and many thanks to Mother Nature for being so kind and cooperative today!

Yes, the weather was less than desirable here as well. It was warm (60) but raining the entire time we were trick or treating. Not that we let that stop us. ;)
November already. Wow! Time is flying!

ah yes, days of thanks are upon us...and we have so much to be thankful for...the rain is moving out but we needed every drop we got today and for it I am truly thankful!

The Halloween weather certainly seemed to be gloomy all over the place. We'd had rain for a few days before hand. It stopped raining in time for trick-or-treats, but it was COLD!

I'm looking forward to your thankful posts.
