Are you going trick or treating tonight or staying home to pass out candy?
This is one of my favorite treats to give friends and neighbors. 2 cups of peanuts and 2 cups of candy corn mixed. So easy!
I have fond memories of trick or treating as a child. I think we had bags just like those in the above picture. Remember when- we were not afraid to go trick or treating just about anywhere? the scariest costume we had was a white sheet with 2 eye holes? plastic masks which hurt if the string was too tight? barely being able to breathe through all that plastic? sticking out your tongue through the plastic hole? (ouch, sometimes sharp edges) people giving away unwrapped things like carmel apples or popcorn balls? the end of safe trick or treating when hearing of a razor blade in an apple?
Our neighborhood is rated in the top 10 safest in our city but of course, we still check all the candy before eating it. Expecting tons of trick or treaters. I've already spent $30 on candy and am thinking I need to buy more.
Update- Good news is our computer savvy friend retrieved all of our photos from our crashed computer! Hopefully we'll never have that scare again. Mrs. T and I didn't complete decorating her house. Several of her fabrics did not arrive. Will post pictures when it all comes together.
When the boys get home from school today we will carve out a jack-o-lantern to light up the porch for our little guests. I always enjoy seeing all the cute costumes. At the end of the night I will go through my boys' bags and take out all the chocolate. Lucky me! They don't like chocolate.
