Get ready for some fun because Halloween is here again. Yes, one of my favorite times of year is just around the corner. Children and adults will be dressing up in costumes and having fun. Children will be trick-or-treating and adults will go out to parties.
Nedra and Chad both have some plans of their own this year. Here is a recent conversation they’ve had.

Nedra:  So, I’m really excited because next week’s Halloween and it’s one of my favorite holidays.

Chad:  You know, my kids are talking about what they’re gonna be. And a few weeks ago they went to the big stores and there’s all these racks of witches and different types of, uh, you know, characters in the Disney movies. And my two year-old wants to be a sheriff with spurs and the nice big hat and my four year-old wants to be a witch.

Nedra:  What kind of witch does she want to be? Like, a goulish witch?

Chad:  No a pretty plain jane, uh, buttered-down witch, you know, um. kind of a mellow one. She wants to not stand out she wants to fit in with with her friends but she wants to be a witch.

Nedra:  And wear all sparklies like sparkly face, hat kind of white material?

Chad:  Yeah, like, she wants to be a witch but she wants to be nice.

Nedra:  That’s cool. I actually am dressing up too this year. I’m a big kid at heart.

Chad:  Oh yeah? I can’t wait to see what you’re gonna be.

Nedra:  All I can say is it involves fins.

It’s interesting how people’s Halloween changes when they have kids. When you have young people in your life to share the fun with, it can make adults feel young again.
Do you have any plans for Halloween? Is there any Halloween tradition you’d like to share with us? If so, please come to the Life Goes On message board!
Take care.
