Good Friday morning, my Christmas friends!

We trick-or-treated last night with Elizabeth and some of her younger cousins. Here's the Wilma Flintstone costume that Elizabeth made for herself:



I spent most of the evening impersonating Barney Fife, waving a flashlight trying to slow cars as they sped dangerously through town. Seriously, what are some people thinking? One guy stopped and, with a scowl on his face, said, "Are trying to stop me?" I said, "No, just trying to slow traffic because of all the children trick-or-treating." His demeanor became less severe, and he said, "Oh. Good idea." Then he drove off slowly.

I really need a badge.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Good morning MMC!
It's going to be rainy and windy today. The rain isn't coming down at the moment but I am hesitant about going out there for a walk. The dogs do not like the high winds!
I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween. I had a great time handing candy out. We had about 50 trick or treaters this year. I think we have less and less every year!
I'm so excited that it's November 1st. I can't stop thinking about Thanksgiving. I'm going to start working on my menu plan!
My husband finally decided what car we will be getting. I'm kind of sad to see my truck go but I think I will like the crossover. I will have the new car by tonight.
Not too much planned for me today. Typical day of chores. I need to figure out what I'm going to cook next week and then I will go to the butcher. I'll do the rest of my food shopping tomorrow.
If I have time I will run to Target for a few things too. Maybe I'll check out their Halloween clearance!
I hope everyone is well and has a happy Friday!!!

Elizabeth is beautiful, l love the costume!
I know what you mean about the drivers, people can be so inconsiderate. I have three teenage drivers and I told them over and over again to be careful, go slow and look out for those trick or treaters. Actually I tell them to be careful and go easy every day. It's scary.

I'm watching the local news and they said Lay's is coming out with chocolate covered potato chips.
Yesterday they were talking about Deep-Fried Twinkie Burgers.

Days until the Special Post Series begins: 7
ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!
(November really is special, isn't it?)
A week until the beginning of our Special Posts? Yet another reason to look forward to Friday!
