I used to get so excited to go trick or treating that I couldn't eat my dinner and all I wanted to do was get dressed and go out in the neighborhood.
|ET and the Witch|
I loved this costume. Don't I look the like the Wicked Witch from the Wizard of Oz? My green skin was a mud mask that hardened and tightened on my face as time progressed. By the time I got home, my face looked wrinkly. As I remember it was very hard to get it off.
When I was little I idolized Michael Jackson. It was the time of Thriller and we used to pretend we were the King of Pop or we were marrying him in the neighborhood. I'm actually glad I ended up with Luke and not him, but I guess that is another story.

I think my kids get just as excited about Halloween as I do and we've had so much fun. On Halloween, Front Street is closed off and Scituate harbor merchants open their doors for the kids to trick or treat. It is so sweet to see ghosts and goblins, witches, Harry Potters, dinosaurs, dragons and a whole host of other characters take to the streets.

One of my absolute favorite costumes was John as Superman (our favorite superhero):
|Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Super John!|
Last year John was a cowboy and Conor a chicken. I thought the two kind of went together. Here they are in the harbor by Joye. It was very cold and windy last year:
