The Spooky Old Tree

When I was a kid I loved this book... my mom only brought it out during the month of October.  She and I would sit on the couch in our festively decorated living room-- reading by the light of Halloween candles and hanging lights.  The story scared me half to death... and I still remember how anxious I was for those brave little cubs.

It made my night when I came home this evening to find my baby sitting on the couch with my mom... in a VERY festively decorated living room, very well lit with Halloween candles and hanging lights... reading The Spooky Old Tree.  And by the looks of his face, I'm going to guess the book scares Deacon as much as it used to scare me...

Sometimes I wish Blogger had a "like" button like FB does. I would totally "like" this post. :)

I love that the tradition continues!!

Strangely, this book was one of MY favorites too. I knew we had some substantial things in common.
