Midnight Madness ~ A Halloween Celebration

Our celebration began with a birthday party for both my brother and I. My birthday was just a few weeks ago, his, in a couple of days. We gathered for a party at my house. The menu included Bewitching Chili with Broomstick Bread Sticks. Frankenstein's Monster Toe Cookies and even a Festive Pumpkin Dip to start.

We both have sons, one 5, the other 6. Tonight as we watched them, we were reminded of what the fair was meant to be, what it used to be. We saw it through children's eyes again.

Lights were everywhere. The air was chilly and the smells of ciders, coffee and midway treats filled the air.

Screams of delight washed over our ears, whether our own or someone else's.

The light drizzle that soaked us to the bone didn't matter. Even after our toes, noses and fingers were numb.

Smiles were abundant, as were squeals of delight.

A cup of hot cocoa and some flannel pjs were all it took for a pefect ending to a perfect night.

Happy Celebrating!
