Halloween Recap

Happy November friends!  Can you believe it is November?  I know I can't.  How was your Halloween?  We really enjoyed ours.  Let's review, shall we?

From Mississippi I received this beautiful nieces the cat, the bumble bee, and Satan. 

She is 13, don't ask...I didn't.  She makes a very pretty Satan though doesn't she?

In Houston we had lots of trick or treaters.  It was so much fun.  I put dinner on to simmer...

...and then the husband and I sat outside on the front porch with our candy and greeted all the kiddos.  We saw lots of super heroes, lots of princesses and two of the cutest witches I have ever seen in all my life.

And then we enjoyed dinner.

Home made chicken and dumplings.  Yum.  And the best part...these are my lightened up chicken and dumplings and they are fantastic.  You can find my recipe in my Home Made Chicken and Dumplings post.

The only thing that could have made the evening better...if it was still cool outside.  It was pretty warm last night.  Sigh.  Maybe it will be cool on Thanksgiving.

Okay, who has heard of the site Dog Shaming?  I find it pretty hilarious.  I am not usually a dogs in costumes fan, but I saw one there yesterday that I thought was very clever.


Next year year.  LOL.

Your turn...tell me about your Halloween!!


  1. That dog costume is brilliant!!! LOL And your nieces are precious!! I bet they had a great time trick or treating. I know my girls did. :)

  2. you had a better plan than I did, we had to scarf down leftovers to beat the kids, eating AFTER would've been a better idea. love the dog costume!

    1. It was nice to eat afterward...I am glad I planned it that way. Idea for next year!


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments make my day and I do my very best to respond to each and every one of them.
