For the past 6 years Dale and I have thrown a Halloween party on the Saturday before the 31st of October. It’s something we’ve really enjoyed but this year we aren’t doing it. I was on the fence about this year and had been struggling to come up with a theme and just wasn’t feeling it. For one, I think my creative juices are just … partied out. There was Patrick’s graduation party back in June and Jessica’s baby shower last month. For another, there has been a lot going on since August with hospital trips and extra time away from home – time that might normally be spent readying and decorating for a party. And finally, the last straw, I found out that the woman who I always hire to help me in the kitchen wasn’t available. Boom. The end. No party.
I’m not sad and we’re actually going to a party at Tom and Anne’s instead and I think taking a year off will give us renewed energy and creativity to get back at it next year. I am, however, reminiscing about my favorite costumes we have worn for the past few years so today, for Three on Thursday, I’m sharing the top three.
Halloween 2016. I was the Undead Librarian and he was Santiago from The Old Man and the Sea.
From 2015, The Undead Saloon party. Dale was Custer and I, well, I had a hard ride on that overland trail.
From 2014, The Scary Circus featuring The Ringmaster and Creepy Clown. This remains my favorite of them all.
Dressing up for Halloween is so much fun, I just love the chance to be someone else for a little while!
