flash fiction friday- it's that time of year again

Every Friday write a short story, poem or prose of 55 words
no more, no less and then report it to the g-man!!

"witches and warlocks, goblins and ghosts
time will see who likes my children the most

the treasure they hunt, the sweets they request
will drop in their buckets if properly dressed

 with great expectation they'll go door to door
chanting the phrase they learned years before


here you go g-man i am all ready for the haunting weekend!! we have the wonderful college hill area to go to and i am excited to see all the decorations this year!! my little witch and vampire will be working the beat around 4:30 in beautiful 70 degree weather!! can you believe it is fall?!?!. we have been uber busy i will try to check on everyone tonight as best i can, but the dishes are not done and i still have one more pumpkin to carve!! Haley as a doctors appointment in the morning and it is "A's" 17th birthday tomorrow. i know i have not been a good blogger buddy as i have not checked up on everyone. but i will try to catch up sometime tonight or tomorrow!! have a great holiday i will post pictures next week!!

Such a fun time of year. I love watching the kids scratch themselves and adjust their costumes that really do look uncomfortable.

Hoping my 3yo will put one the mickey mouse costume he requested but now turns up his nose at.

Nice rhyme.

Happy Halloween

Very apropos. I love greeting all the little ghosts and goblins who come to my door.

We don't get trick or treaters at our house, guess not a lot of kids in our neighborhood.

Great 55!

Have a safe and happy halloween!
