One Halloween Night


October 22, 2008 by WITS Houston

I like the holiday Halloween because I get lots of candy! My mom won’t let me eat it all. I have to save it and eat just 2 pieces a day.

On Halloween I get to dress up. Today I’m a goth princess. My aunt had the black dress with the black hat and my mom made my jewelry. My little sister dressed up as a rock and roller. We only had the shirt and the wig so we had to add the eyelashes, the make-up, and the safety pins.

Tonight we’re going to a football field where they’re having a carnival. There are a lot of bulldogs in my neighborhood so it’s a little scary on Halloween because they might chase us. When I was six, I wore a long dress and boots and I kept tripping while I was trick-or-treating. I think tonight will be fun!
