Costumed Requital

Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,Voices whisper in the trees, "Tonight is Halloween!"- - - Dexter Kozen

The things I absolutely love about this season...

*The creepiness lent to even the most ordinary things.

* Seizing the opportunity to conquer one's fears.

*The way all of God's creatures seem dressed for just such an occasion as this to walk among us in all of their finery.

*The absolute giggle inducing, tingle in your cheek sort of sparkle in the air.

* The way we are inspired to rewrite the classics

* Menus infused with the bounty of the season

* All the Krafting and Kooking that's just for fun...just for memory's sake...without all the pressure of having 97 presents neatly wrapped and adorned and completely overthought.

Be sure to check out Julie's Hump Day Hmmm, this week, as it is also about this divine season.

Next week's Counting Mercies is:

Alphabet Soup- 26 things using consecutive letters of the alphabet that make your day. Get Creative!

I had such fun this weekend, decorating the house with Isaac. Tonight we're carving the jack-o-lanterns and I can't wait to see his face when he reaches into that squishy gooey mess for the first time.

Fall is my favorite season indeed. The smells, the crisp weather, the activities - all wonderful :)

That little doggie is about the cutest thing ever!!

Very cool pictures. I wanted to be more into Halloween this year, but I guess I'm a bit preoccupied.

cute kids!

and thanks for the link. I really should have put a disclaimer on that post, I didn't even think about it. I didn't WRITE either of those (although I did adapt the Hooky Spooky quite a bit) but I found them on a public use website.
