Rachel's Halloween

Ramona here. My daughter LOVES Halloween. She can't participate much, but she loves the dressing up and the sounds of lots of kids visiting and laughing. We always dressed her up for school. Two years ago, she went as the Gothic Prom Queen. There's a spider web woven into her hair, and in true Rachel fashion, the fake tattoo on her forehead wound up on her rear before the day was over.

We would also deck out her wheelchair for the holiday. Here you can see some of the strange stuff we'd add to her tray. What you don't get the full effect of is the blinking and squeaking bats, and the dancing Frankenstein who sang "The Monster Mash." And a good time was had by all...

Loved seeing the photos of Rachel in costume! Looks like she enjoys Halloween!!! I always did, too!

Rain this evening. Very few kids at the door, which means I'm left with too much candy...that I'll be forced to eat, of course!

Rachel looks stunning. We had quite a few kids. Candy almost gone.

Bet she loves to dress up and see all the kids coming to the door.

She looks SO COOL! Like Debby, we have way too much candy left. I'm hoping everyone eats it quick so I don't!

Wow! What a cool costume, Rachel! I'm glad you had a good Halloween : )

We live on a bcak street, so we don't get many trick or treaters. 4 kids and 4 adults this year! Plenty of candy left!!
