My Halloween night this year was looking pretty grim, mostly due to the fact that it fell on a Wednesday. I didn't have a costume prepared or anything...pretty lame, I know. It's just, the holidays (yes, I'm considering Halloween a holiday) are kinda lonely and not as fun without Chad around. This is the 2nd year in a row that we have missed spending the holiday season (which of course is our favorite time of year) together because of deployments. Therefore, I was considering staying home and watching a movie, maybe serving candy to any little critters that just happened to fall upon our front porch step...but I didn't do either of those. Instead, I gathered up my grungiest (is that a word?) gear and posed as a hillbilly. Although... I have to be true to myself (and you) and admit that being a hillbilly isn't really that much of a stretch for me & my family (we're pretty close to white trash, if you know what I mean) :). I then headed over to my sister's house to help out with their 2nd annual Haunted House. It just so happened that she had an extra "Jason" mask lying around, and my hillbilly outfit kinda matched...so, a wan-a-be Jason I was.
With a perfect hiding spot in front of the black light & fog machine, I accomplished scaring the living crap out of quite a few children. They would round my corner and I would "RAAARRRGHHHHH" in their faces with my glowing mask & a lot of intensity. I was pretty scary, I'm not gonna lie. haha. We had about 60 people come through our Haunted House, which I think is a pretty good number, considering some were too scared to tempt their fate and just opted out for candy instead...Pansies :). Anyways, I was glad that I decided to participate, although my voice today feels otherwise. It was a good Halloween & we had some great laughs (plus, I got to eat some candy & that always makes things better :)!hehehe)
