It’s overcast outside. The clouds are dark, gray, and heavy over the orange-tinted trees.

It is what I think of as a perfectly bootiful Halloween!

Tonight, Princess Buttercup will dress up in her Halloween costume and join her spooky buddies in a candy-grabbing frenzy. Of course, we’re all Southern, so it will be a very polite scenario. Lots of parents will be in the background calling, “Say ‘thank you!'” and “Don’t walk on the grass! Use the sidewalk!”

The “Boo” pumpkins in the photo is a creation from my friend who owns and manages Rabbit’s Nest Florist and Gifts: http://www.rabbitsnestflowers.com. (The display is on Rabbit’s Nest Florist and Gifts’ FB page.) I haven’t been in her store yet, but I’m dying to go. She posted her design on her Facebook page, and I called her this morning and begged to use it for my blog. I’m tempted to shirk my writing and go on over and buy it!

Anyway, Happy Halloween! Hope you other parents won’t get too full of candy that you take from your kids’ Trick-or-Treat bags as “parent tax!”
