Do you remember when you were a kid and Halloween was the most magical time! It still is for many adults being able to dress up in your fantasy costumes, have parties decorated in full fantasy and cast with magic. At our house part of the magic includes passing out candy to excited children running around in their costumes, eyes light up, waiting for that handful of candy. The magical treat for us is seeing all the wonderful costumes and happy kids. Even our daughter Sammie loves to pass out candy it is half the fun for her. We usually pass out candy for half the time and run around the neighborhood the other half. We leave a bucket of candy at the door when we leave and hope they only grab a handful~ and what is great is I think they do as when we return there is always some candy left in the bucket. So if you have time to create a journal page today or this week our prompt is "Magical" you can draw an illustration, write about your favorite magical time as a child or maybe the party you went to last night & what made it so magical~ For anyone that celebrates Halloween have a safe and magical time~
What is your favorite part of Halloween? What is magical to you?

  1. Hi Theresa,
    Hope you had a Happy Halloween! For me the most magical part of Halloween has always been the moment that we light our carved pumpkins and see how they look all lit up on that first dark evening. Going out to Halloween festivals or parades all dressed in costume is a close second!

  2. We did Stephanie. I did Sammie's makeup she was a vampire, went trick or treating and we also passed out candy. Earlier in the day we went to the pumpkin patch~ Next year we will have to try and carve out some pumpkins with cats on them!

  3. Halloween is always a fun day. I loved dressing up and I still do. Thank for sharing your magical moments. :)
