Mondays Memories

Happy Halloween

I have had a lovely week my friends, the first part I spent finishing off some special photo frames to hang in the hallway that has been long overdue. My journal book had only 3 pages left so I needed to buy and cover a new one there are some beautiful ones at kikki.K and Typo but every so often I love to make and cover my own.
We had more Birthday celebrations this week our sweet little grandson, turned 7 years old, he is a gifted little boy who lives with Autism, he has an amazing smile that melts your heart and every day he teaches us something new. Our little man has progressed beyond belief, now in year 1 at school and although challenging he loves it, we are so very proud of him.   

The past few years we have combined his birthday with Halloween he enjoys dressing up with the family and going trick and treating around the neighbourhood. The funny thing is he like to do tricks for everyone instead of receiving the treats sometimes it’s magic or knock knock jokes, we have so much fun with him. So tonight being our annual Halloween party we dress up and wait for our usual little tricksters to come and visit us for an awesome scream of excitement and then we set off with our children and grandchildren for trick or treating around our local streets, I love these opportunities when you get to play like a child again.......let the fun begin!

I hope you had a fun Halloween did you get many little tricksters visit you

What a lovely tradition to share with your grandson Wendy :)
We didn't actually get anyone come to our door this year..infact the whole neighbourhood was pretty quiet.

We don't do Halloween yet I was still ready with a bag of lollipops in case we had anyone come knock on the door! I think that as years go on, Australia will get much more into celebrating Halloween, so I am sure my kids will be at the peak age to nag me to participate!
Gorgeous pictures, it looks like you had lots of fun! I'm glad you got to share that fun with your grandson too :) Grandmas are super important!

What a wonderful fun time you had! So did I, My son and daughter in law came over dressed as pirates with my grandbaby dressed as a parrot!! What a hoot that was. Then we all went trick or treating together. We had a few less people on the streets than previous years but still a nice group of trick or treaters came around.

All of the costumes look fantastic. Ben

Hi Wendy, loved the pics, Halloween is so much fun! I took my 4 little monsters trick or treating (while dressed as a witch with a black wig and pointy hat!). We had quite a few kids in our neighbourhood running around in costumes. My kids really look forward to it each year. We've still got witches and skeletons hanging up inside :) Have a wonderful day xxx

Wowsers quite the scary bunch!! The costumes are amazing. We did not celebrate, girls still a bit young and they were getting a little freaked out by it all. Thanks for dropping by. Look forward to reading more.x
