We love Halloween! Every year we do our annual neighborhood “thing” and this year I hosted. Some years it’s lasagna, other years it has been chili, but this year we went with a baked ziti, Caesar salad, garlic bread pizza and veggies. It’s fun to have everyone over. It is fun to get out the decorations and it is fun to see all the kids in costume.
The vibe was definitely different this year. All of the adults were sitting at one table and the kids were all sitting at another table. I was amazed and surprised at how “calm” all the kids were behaving. In the past, it was a sea of children – all shapes and sizes – screaming and running, acting all crazy and out of control. This year, they were sitting there, eating their food and actually having conversations, laughing and listening to one another. It was quite remarkable. Sadly, they are growing up. Regardless of their age, they still got into the spirit of the holiday.
