~Halloween Fun~


Last weekend was Halloween and JoJo got into the Spirit of this ancient Pagan tradition
Come to think of it now I know why as Latvijans we used to go to the Cemetery on the last weekend of October, light candles and sing and remember our Loved Ones......



We had a pumpkin candle to put outside and hopefully some Trick or Treaters would arrive......which they did thankfully



JoJo had plenty of treats for them and it just wouldn't occur to her to go Trick or Treating as she is of the giving kind and loves seeing the children in costume
So I thought to go with her costume I would make her up too



So did myself too while I was at it


Looking scary


This was such a fun Treat lol.........a green tongue and gluten free too so I just had to try it


Waiting


and waiting


37 children of all ages called by and 1 very happy JoJo!!!!!!

A fun time too and a serious one too remembering those who have passed on

Happy Weekend.......Dzintra xo

You two look so wonderful dressed up for Halloween!! It's great you had some trick or treaters come by and add to the fun. We didn't get any here, though I did hear some ghostly noises from a nearby party.
