Happy Halloween

What are your Halloween plans? Are you dressing up?

We will just be passing out candy to the neighborhood kids. Those kids that actually come to the porch that is.... we have some weird tradition in our neighborhood where everyone sits at the end of the driveway and gives out the candy... our driveways are NOT long!
There are actually kids that will not come to our home because they have to walk to the porch... they are lucky I don't make them ring the door bell...
Isn't that how it used to be.... "Ding-Dong"... someone comes to the door... you say "trick or treat" they give you candy... Isn't there somewhere that this was called "Beggars Night"... these kids are not begging.

Ok, well now that I got that out there...

I'm not a Halloween Scrooge, we do take part in festive things! B carved a pumpkin... a squash actually... it turned out awesome! Isn't he cute?

Enjoy your Halloween festivities... and please make your kids say "Trick Or Treat"!

The whole "I'm not ringing the door bell" or "I'm not going to that house since they aren't on the porch" crap DRIVES ME CRAZY!

Come ring the damn door and say trick or treat.

One year, I had luminaries out, lights on the house, the door all decorated and spooky and because our garage lights weren't on NO ONE came to our house. STUPID.

I turned them on and we got like 20 trick or treaters because we had them ring the door bell.

I just don't get it.

We for sure say trick or treat, Happy Halloween and thank you!

With the rainy weather we only had a few kids this year.
