Halloween Fun
Halloween Fun

We LOVE parties, getting together, celebrations, traditions and just having good, wholesome FUN!  Halloween can be scary and sinister.  However, we have chosen to join in and participate without the evil or terror aspects that so often is a part of this holiday.  Here are some of the things we did this year.  I would really like to hear from YOU what you did to make Halloween ‘friendly’ so we can all have ideas for next year! Halloween Traditions

Continue for more great ideas and pictures!

Here are some pictures from parties and places we have been this season to have fun.  I apologize to my sweet daughter in law Ashley.  I don’t have any pictures of her in this collection because when we decorated cookies and did the fun party at my house; for some reason the pictures were over exposed and I don’t have one of them with her decorating the cookies…I’m very sad about that:/    To all, I hope you enjoy the pictures and thank you so much for being a friend to A Mother’s Shadow, me and my family.

The Grand Kids Halloween Time

 When I asked my grandkids what they wanted to do at our family Halloween party, they said decorated cookies and one grandson said he wanted to Bob for Apples – so we did!

The train ride is always a favorite

We also took my mom Connie on an excursion from the rehab center she has been staying at after her hip replacement.  My handsome hubby ‘danced’ with her.  I had a blast hanging out with mom at Gardner Village at Witches Night Out.
