Halloween Twenty Six Years ago

On a dark scary Halloween many years ago, we were painting our faces and getting ready to go trick or treating, when my mother went into labor.  She left me in charge of my two younger sisters and asked me to take them trick or treating.  I was so excited, but mom wasn't she said she didn't want the baby born on Halloween, which I still find funny.  I spent the night trick or treating with my sisters, then coming back home.   No baby came Halloween night, but we were about to have a new one in our household the next day. 

Tonight was fun looking at all the Halloween trick or treaters, brought back good memories.  Then there was some really strange ones that came too.  Been watching Prison Break, and Medium tonight, Mike's working late.  I'm beat.  About to hit the hay.

What a lovely memory.  Funny how your mom was concerned about having a 'Halloween baby' ... my mother was concerned when I had my son on the 13th !   Tina    http://journals.aol.com/onemoretina/Ridealongwithme

I'm glad your Halloween was fun.  Mine was boring this year.  I had no trick-or-treaters.
