Happy Halloween

I just need a reason to celebrate. Anything really.

The Husband was working away from home and that left Tara and I with Halloween celebrations to organize. I wasn't keen on going trick or treating in the dark without The Husband. Turns out that Tara wasn't keen on going out either. She said she doesn't like going door to door asking for sweets. Fair enough.

I decided to do what I do best - organize an impromptu mini celebration at home at short notice, with only one target audience to please - Tara. Saying that, it doesn't take much to please her.

We watched a Halloween movie, played ball outside, (it was warm today), made some paper decorations in the evening and ordered a Halloween special pizza meal deal for dinner. When it was dark we turned off all the lights in the house, disabled the doorbell (sorry kids!), lit candles, and decorated Tara's playroom at the back of the house. We had a good time. As if on cue a firework display overhead made our day feel extra special. We hugged each other and shared a special Mummy-Daughter warm moment to put away in our memory banks for the future.
