Halloween is such a fun holiday! I just love the energy with the costumes and the festivities. This year we have a bonus, it’s on the weekend. Steve and I have been traveling for the past month. We are looking forward to reconnecting with friends and family on this Halloween weekend.
Our festivities will start Friday, some friends are coming over for dinner and Steve will be introducing his new cocktail, the Halloweenie – tini. I will be warning our guests to indulge with caution, this one will creep up on you.
On Saturday we’re going over to see the Grandchildren in their costumes and trick or treat with them. We chatted on the phone the other night and they are so excited. Eleanor is going to be a Banana, Elizabeth is a Peacock and Estelle, the baby, will be Minnie Mouse. I’ve not seen them in a few weeks and I’m really looking forward to hanging out with them and seeing their costumes. I found some photos of last year and they were adorable. Never fear, as the proud grandparent I will be posting pictures to Social media on the big night.
I’ve prepared a Halloween Basket for them of Clementine’s and other orange fruits, hoping to inject some healthy options amongst all of the sugar they will be inhaling. After the Trick or Treating with the kids, Steve and I will wander downtown for the festivities and to see the parade of costumes in downtown Annapolis.
What plans do you have for the weekend?The weather will be glorious, here at least, and we are looking forward to making some memories. I hope you are too. Remember, Table Talk is a conversation, so please share a story below, or on Facebook!
