Halloween Puppy Card for my Son
Isn't he the cutest? I coloured him with my Bic markers and added a "furry" brad to the spider's body. I wasn't raised celebrating Halloween but I do enjoy this holiday :) although I very much try to keep it on the side of "cute and fun". I have a story to share with you ... my first Halloween in America was not as exciting as you would think - I walked around the neighbourhood with the children and let me tell you that some people go all out with their decorations lol. Being a weenie by nature, I cut my kids' trick or treating short and locked myself in my home. I thought the whole country had gone mad and possessed by some kind of evil! I could see me having nightmares for the foreseeable future! :-) Of course I soon realized that it was all done in the name of "fun", but I didn't find it very funny at the time, especially when my neighbours started telling me about all the possible dangers involved in the candy that my children had gotten. Needless to say, I spent the rest of the evening going through their candy with a fine tooth comb. It went a lot better the next year and the year after that and it didn't take us long to get into it too :-) The only thing I miss now is that my kids are both too old for trick or treating - I wish I could turn back time, but then don't we all?
