Josie’s Halloween Costume…Funny or Scary?


JOTS FROM JOSIE: “Hi friends, Happy Fall! I’ve been thinking about my Halloween costume. Should I be funny or scary? My best friend Blackie says I’m already scary! Blackie doesn’t like Halloween, but I’ll get him to help me prepare, like make delicious snacks. Visit me next week for tasty Halloween goody recipes! Love, Josie.” Remember to buy my book, “A Big Halloween Surprise”, online at: or Quote from Josie: “Sharing good snacks with friends is fun & healthy.”
