In the four Halloweens that we’ve lived here we’ve NEVER had Trick-or-Treaters. So this year, even though I had a coupon for free bag of anything, I decided to purchase nothing.
And yes, as one would only expect, the kids showed up – in costumes, no less! Luckily I had stopped by Trader Joe’s earlier in the day and picked up some 100-cal packs. Granted, I won’t be the favorite house on the street, but it’s better than nothing. At least the parents will have something to snack on!
I was so bad at the giving out thing that I totally forgot to comment on costumes! Man, see what comes from hiding from trick-or-treaters for the past ten years?
I guess next year I go back to buying a bag of candy and hope the Griffster doesn’t devour it like he did our first year here (it was an entire back of Reese’s mini-cups – tinfoil and all!)
WooHoo!!! My first official NaBloPoMo post!! Let the games begin! 😀
