We had a first tonight. Trick or Treating while there is snow on the ground. I have to admit it was interesting to walk the neighbor in a costume with the white stuff on the ground. I did realize tonight I am not cut out to live in a cold climate that could have snow every Halloween. I was frozen by the end of the night. I think my 4 year old did better than me. The cold didn't seem to effect him at all. Confession when I was younger I wanted to live in an apartment building in NYC. I thought it was the coolest thing to be able to wear a costume without having to wear a jacket. I know. It does sound weird but I hated always having to think about coats and layers. Most people would dream about living in California. Not me. NYC. Anyone else?

I'm dreaming of a white Halloween......

What, you've never dreamed of the white stuff under your orange pumpkins? Never thought how fun would it be to go on a wagon ride in the snow? Never thought of playing let's see who can trip over the pumpkin that's hidden in the snow? Ever wonder how in the world are you going to fit a snowsuit under a costume? Or saying to the kids no running down the street because you might slip on the black ice? Me neither! Nor do I ever want to think about this stuff again. Mother nature, please keep the white stuff to yourself at least until Thanksgiving. I love watching the high school Turkey day games in the snow.

Believe or not but they are were sand cherry trees. I'm not expecting them to come back in the spring. Bummer. This storm really did a number on things. Some of our neighbors lost their electric yesterday and were told they won't have it back on until TUESDAY! Not acceptable.

Bummed.....sort of

We have had so many plans today. First we were going to do the movies. Followed by trick or treating. Then a costume dance/contest. Did I mention everything takes place at an outdoor mall??? Or the fact we are getting snow today? It actually started snowing 2 hours ago. It's not sticking to the ground. Yet. I am totally bummed. Bubby was looking so forward to the Halloween fun. I'm watching the snow fall and fight the urge to play Christmas music. Guess this means playing in the snow later. Best part.
