Tomorrow is Halloween, and I've been looking forward to it for an entire year! See, I love being home on Halloween giving out candy to trick-or-treaters, but for the last several years I've lived in condo/townhouse communities that don't have many children so I/we haven't had any (or extremely few). Either that or I went to a party or had Bible study that night or whatever. This year we are in our new house in a very family-oriented neighborhood and are anticipating several. It was about this time last year that we were visiting this neighborhood frequently, checking progress on the house as it was being built, meeting with the loan officer, going through the model home for measurements and decorating ideas, etc. and as we drove around we noticed that many of the houses were decorated for fall/Halloween. It made me excited for this Halloween, knowing that we'd finally live in a neighborhood where we'd actually get trick-or-treaters and be able to hand out candy. We even carved a pumpkin for the first time in years. So, tomorrow night we'll be handing out candy, watching "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" and horror movies and eating popcorn (and candy!). Can't wait.
