this is the time of year that i get really nostalgic. well..let's be honest, i always get nostalgic. but, there is something about halloween that brings back some pretty dang sweet childhood memories.
i remember this halloween.
i remember feeling adorable.
i remember abi as a baby, dressed up as a bumblebee i think. i adored her from the beginning.
i remember trick-or-treating with my pops and his fake plastic cheeks, i always thought they looked so real.
i remember the anticipation of wearing my costume to school and being in the drigg's halloween parade.
i remember coming home to a wooden cat with glazed doughnuts on the tail.
i remember going to the barker's house for chili and scones and just wishing we could get out and trick-or-treat.
i remember my mom's big halloweeen makeup box, the smell of it.
i remember dave and joe going to halloween parties instead of trick or treating and thinking that was so crazy.
i remember going to haunted houses and just crying my eyes out because i was so scared.
yes, halloween is a great time and i am so grateful for the memories my parents and family created with me.
can't wait to create fun halloween memories with my little ones someday.
life is sweet.
