Halloween Fun

I would say that on the Halloween front, I am somewhat in the middle of totally not celebrating and total blood and gore.  I love my scarecrows, my cute little witches and ghosts and my pumpkin (good for eating after decorating).  BUT I have never been one to do anything more scary than a witches hat or my homemade spiders that I hang in various locations around the house.  BUT I do love Halloween, or maybe it is that I love the Fall and so much of the crispness in the air, the squash and pumpkins, the oranges and yellows that I associate with fall I also associate with the coming of Halloween.

So I have my traditions--I have my cute decorations and candles.  I must buy mum plants and lots of squash to decorate with. I have a silly Halloween party CD that I play every year and have for at least 15 years now.  I love to take the night off and wait for the trick or treaters and cook something very fallish.  Now that we are out in the country, we don't get trick or treaters.  BUT my candles still burn and fill the house with pumpkin and spices, my CD still plays and lst night I cooked roasted vegetable jambalaya to meet the requirement of a "fall type" dish.

For those of you who enjoy Halloween and all the decorations and ghoul that comes along with it, we found the perfect street for you to stroll down, take in and photograph.  For those of you who don't go for that these pictures may not be for you.  I will say though it was fun to walk these several blocks, take pictures and see everyone that comes out to do the same.  One homeowner told us that they have 4000 trick or treaters every year here!  That's lot of candy!
