Trick or Treat?
Friday, as you know, was Halloween. Husband and I were pretty excited to spend a fairly quiet evening at home passing out candy. I got a great deal on some yummy candy - oh about 100 pieces in two bags. We had a pretty good showing last year. I thought we would almost run out this year since the day was on a Friday. We didn't carve a pumpkin but we made sure to turn on lights to let folks know we were, indeed, home. Neither one of us are super into Halloween but we like to see the little ones all dressed up. I thought that the little ones would be around about dusk and the older kids after dark... anticipating a slow down around 9:00 PM.
Yeah... so what I thought would happen was very different from what ACTUALLY happened.
Our first trick-or-treaters came at about 7:15 PM (about an hour after I thought they would start) and we had two very excited princesses on our patio. I was excited for the parade to start.
Little did I know that would BE the parade. Two little ones all night.
Unfortunately, I opened the bags of candy to put in a festive bowl. So, now we are stuck with all the mostly chocolaty goodness... darn. hee hee!
On the upside, we got a kick our of making my tummy into a little pumpkin at 30-weeks.
