I think tomorrow is the first day of autumn, but I put my decorations out last Friday because my grandchildren were coming to spend the night. They are like their grandmother and enjoy the fall festivities. I love autumn. Halloween and Thanksgiving are two of my very favorite holidays. As a young girl, my mother always made my Halloween costume. In fact, she was a very accomplished seamstress and made just about everything I wore. I always went trick-or-treating with my good friends, and we had so much fun getting to dress up and of course, that yummy candy, too. On several occasions we went to our school carnival where we did the cakewalk, bobbed for apples, "fished" at the pond for prizes, and went through the haunted house. Many times there would be a fun movie on tv Halloween night such as, Ma and Pa Kettle, Francis the Talking Mule, Abbot and Costello, Spanky and Our Gang, or The Three Stooges. On Thanksgiving, we would always have a big family feast with cornbread dressing, turkey, and my mom's delicious pies. I have never tasted a chocolate cream pie or a coconut cream pie as good as my mother made. Then, we always watched the football game afterwards. Our tummies were so full we could hardly move. But, later on, those left overs were even more delicious than ever.
Thank you so much for dropping by for a visit today. I always love it when you do. I am wishing for you many autumn blessings and a wonderful week!
