Andrew my little prince did not want to wear a costume. He was a golfer, and wanted to go trick or treat as a golfer! So he was dresses like a golfer. Isn’t that sweater so cute? His little brother Zain was a spider, but I didn’t get to see him, because it was just too darn cold for him to be out on this very chilly night.


Davis on the other hand, wanted to be a robot. He had his 11th birthday yesterday. He is into robotics, and so his mother (Saadia) made this whole costume for him. She spent so many hours putting this together. I am telling you, I was stunned at how cool the robot costume was. See for yourself.



And here is Saadia, so happy that the day is finally done!


Had about twenty kids at the door tonight. Not a heavy deal. But enough to turn the porch  lights off at 8:30. Too old to sit and wait around. 😉

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    Oh wow your handsome grandsons have grown to tall. Davis is 11 now and it seem like yesterday I was reading your blog on Xanga and he was just a little guy who was snuggling with you to go to sleep.
    Looks like a fun Halloween for all.

    I love the photo—especially the last one. It rained tonight, so we had no kids.

  4. Wow! Your grand-princes had GREAT costumes! How wonderful and creative their mom is! 🙂

    i’m glad to say that halloween is NOT a common celebration here in indonesia, thus one doesn’t get to have people knocking on doors for trick or treating. what we do have, since halloween is becoming such an international excuse for a party, is halloween theme decorations at bars, restaurants, and gyms. seeing the staff at my gym, every single one of them, in scary make-up, was not exactly a motivation for me to feel excited about sweating it out for health. especially when the instructor of my class dressed like a vampire, cape and all.
