A ghoul party

I hesitated posting this post.  With all the ones suffering from Sandy.  But here goes.  My DIL put this party on for her 6 and 9 year old little girls a couple weeks ago.  I didn't post all the decorations mostly just the eats.  My DIL is so creative.
Goose looking sad.  Her BFF didn't show up.  She did decide that her other friends were there and she could still have a good time.  She is going trick or treating tonight as "It's raining cats and dogs".

Hope and her BFF, my Doodle.  I don't get the ghoul zombie thing, do you.
And her is Doodle with my DIL.  (Not Doodles' mom)
She put this party together while her mother was having surgery for cancer.  We can sure use some prayers for her.  She has tonsil, throat and neck cancer.  She had breast cancer 10 years ago.  At least 50 lymph nodes are involved.  She has already been readmitted to the hospital after her surgery and dismissal.  I can't even imagine how painful this has been.  I have known her since before our kids dated....and that was when they were in the 8th grade.  We share Hope and Goose.  We have been together for baby births, birthdays, soccer games, school plays and on and on.  She will have a long road of chemo treatments but  she is a long way out before they can even start.  Please pray for Karen and her family.
With the happenings from the storm and this going on, I am not excited about Halloween.  Sometimes we have to move on for the kids.  I know that they still feel the same about this holiday, thank goodness. 
So whether you celebrate this holiday or not, I hope that your day goes well and isn't too SPOOKY.

I'm really impressed by your daughter in law's creative talent and keeping focused on her kids at this difficult time.
I really feel sorry for her mom 's suffering and for your daughter in law. I'll link up to heaven in prayers for them and the family and the little grandkids.

With so many devastations i really don't feel like Halloween this year and didn't took my decorations out of the big tote. On the bright side, my Halloween cleanup will be done in time this year.

Dear Debby, Your DIL did a great job, so many touches I'm sure the kids all loved. My great niece was a zombie too...Yikes, not for me. God bless your DIL's Mom, please send her our best wishes and prayers. Take care my friend, I know you will make things special for your little sweethearts, you always do. Love, Penny
