I so enjoy Halloween. . . .actually I pretty much love every and any excuse to celebrate. . . .Celebrate what? Like I said pretty much anything and everything. . . .a party is a party and I love it! :) This month ~Halloween~ and it hits the top of my list. I was trying to put a finger on the reasons why I love Halloween so much. . .it really isn't the costumes . . .believe me it's not the costumes (the kids are killing me with their costume selections this year) and it's definitely not the candy. The only thing I can come up with is Grandma Barrett's BIG Halloween Bash. It was amazing ~ I am excited just thinking about it. . . tons of family. . . good food. . .lots of laughter. . . and a kick a** Haunted House. I'm not exaggerating when I say that it is better than any formal Haunted House I've ever been to. I love the nervous feeling I would feel every single year without fail. . . .I mean come on . . . .I knew my dad. . . uncles. . aunts . . who ever . . .were the monsters, but they were so real and it was so scary. I love the constant and I mean constant screech of a scream from every young girl (I think a few of the boys as well). . . I am just loving writing about this. I really can not do these parties justice. One year Tim scared the neighbor lady so bad she actually died! We had to hide the body for weeks... ok, maybe not but I'm getting in the booo zone! I am being totally honest when I say that I want to be able to throw parties like Grandma Barrett and create amazing memories for my babies like my Grandma Barrett did with Halloween for me. Grandma and Grandpa if you ever read this . . . we love you and you are in our thoughts regularly. We don't have an unforgettable Haunted House yet. . but we have some fun things in store for the Watson Kiddos this month. Stay tuned. ..
