Well Sarabeth wants us to share some Halloween memories...and the one that stands out the most is when I was around 7-8 yrs old and couldn't go trick or treating until I ate the cabbage my mom had cooked for dinner. I HATE CABBAGE!!!! I tried to get the cat to eat, bribe my brothers and sister to eat it, but nothing worked. I finally took my chances by throwing it away, but my mom walked in just as I got to the trash can. So back to the table I went. Well I wanted to go trick or treating but I wasn't about to eat cabbage, so I waited once again for the coast to clear, and I took off to the pot of cabbage still on the stove, and dumped my bowl into the pot...lol Well....I loaded up that night trick or treating!!! I still remember my costume...it was this green alien goblin blow up head thing...funniest costume, but I had the most fun!!!!

I'll be back tomorrow to share some pics of past Halloweens and maybe some candy also!!!! Who knows what I'll be offering and posting!! Hope to see ya hopping and joining!!
