The Boo!




A childhood memory that our kids have is "The Boo". Mike grew up in Taylorsville and just down from his parents house is a neighbor that every October puts up a Halloween display. We lived with Mike's parents for a year when Katy was 1 so almost every night in October we would take a walk down the street to see what we named "the boo". Our kids have grown up loving this Halloween display. Once when Katy was about 2 or 3 a family friend took her down to see it and they were talking about each of the different characters and when they got to the witch and her brew Katy informed her that she was stirring a cauldron. Our friend couldn't stop laughing. She was so shocked that Katy would know it was a cauldron. When Eric was little he loved the Count Dracula. On Sesame Street Eric's favorite character was the Count so it was a natural favorite for him.

Mike's parents have since moved from that home, but we still made the journey out to see the boo this past weekend. We reminisced about the joy this Halloween display has brought to our family for many years. What a great memory!
