Happy Halloween Everyone!
Happy Halloween Everyone! I'm trying something new this year. This year I'm not buying candy, no I'm not a grudge when it comes to Halloween. It's just that every year I get less and less kids coming to my house to collect it. My neighborhood has changed over the years; so much so that this year I'm taking my kids to a friends house to trick or trick.
Last year was a disaster. You see there are a lot of senior citizens in my neighborhood. So even though new young family have moved they are out trick or tricking as well so nobody is home to give out candy. My husband and I took turns every year walking with the kids so their was always someone home to give out candy. The younger family today (wow that made me sound old and I'm not) don't do that. They all go out as a family, wich is nice BUT: They leave theirs lights off and no candy on the stoop. Sucks for the neighbors kids!
So this year I'm taking my kids out of the neighborhood to a friends house a few blocks away where there are tons of kids and families. My kids are really looking forward to it and I am too. I get to socialize with my friends just like they do. For me, it's a win win situation. They get more candy and we both get to hang out with our friends.
So Have a Happy Halloween! And make sure to stay safe, travel in groups, and get lots of candy!
