I'm the Halloweenie, I Suppose
I'm not a fan of Halloween so to speak, but I do like a good reason to get dressed up and look like someone other than myself.

Last night we went to Festival 31, an alternative to trick or treating and festival sponsored by our church. I decided this to be the appropriate occasion for me to don something silly and dress up like the kids. Clowning has always held fascination for me, so being a clown comes naturally. Here I am after the festivities last night, in which I could barely stand after pacing the asphalt for 3 + hours:
Close UpWith my silly JD Green, just clowning around . . .
(he actually went as a hunter in head-to-toe camouflage)
The girls did attend, too, but they quickly discarded their homemade costumes in favor of pajamas soon after arriving home. The mama was so consumed with the clowniness before leaving that she forgot the camera for the festival. Oh, well, the memories are etched in my ever-fading memory, I guess : )

My favorite comment of the evening came from JD Green,

"Mama, can we make our costumes again next year? It was much more fun than just going out and buyin' something at the store."

How that warmed this frugal wannabe's heart right to my little tightwad core!

JD's haul.

Libbyline's color-coded cream of the crop goodies.

Sweetcheeks' like-minded and completely segregated stash.

I just thought this was funny as I looked around the living room at how my three so differently handled all the treats they received last night.

Unfortunately for them, the entire mass of it headed to a community box this morning in which they will each be able to take two pieces of candy only when the mama deems it worthy. "Hahahaha," she cackles.

Maybe I wasn't such a clown after all. : ) So glad that's all over.

Now we can head onto my favorite time of year. Thanksgiving!
