Halloween Surprises



Ok, this is definitely the week for unexpected treats. We just got 3 more packages in the mail- 3!!! These ones were from my Dad. I can just see him at Wal Mart, getting really excited as he picks out Halloween stuff to send to us. Can I say cutest Dad ever?

We got one box earlier today. Inside I found picture frames from JoAnn (my Dad's new wife), and 4 boxes of my favorite Halloween treat- Pumpkin Delights!! So much for my goal to lose weight before the Holidays...






Then this evening we got another knock on the door. It was the same UPS guy, with the other 2 boxes. Inside we found tons of Halloween decorations and candy. The candy is for the little ankle-biters who come knocking on our door on Halloween (but we'll see if it lasts that long). I am really excited about the fake spider web stuff, and Kurt really likes the skull. Which I named Morty.

I love my family. I've been missing them like crazy. Halloween is the start of my Dads favorite time of year (which lasts through December). Last week everyone out in Utah went to a Haunted Hayride thing in Thanksgiving Point. And I'm sure pumpkin carving, haunted houses, and scary movies are on the schedule. Then when its closer to Halloween, they will all get together and watch Arsenic and Old Lace, a black and white classic. It's a tradition in our family. They will eat doughnuts and drink cider and munch on my dads Pumpkin Seeds. Without me.

I'm not sad to be in Pittsburgh. But I sort of wish that my family would decide to follow me again- like they did when I moved to Utah. Until then, I guess I will just have to enjoy the packages.
