Happy Sunday Everyone!
We are just days away from Halloween and we have some excited kids in our house. I finally stocked up on enough chocolates and candy to hand out to the trick-or-treaters thanks to Costco and their huge bags of the stuff.
The kid's costumes are ready and my son even suggested that they come back early from "treating" so he can help me hand out candy to the kids.
My husband and I take turns taking the kids trick-or-treating since someone must stay at our house and hand out candy. I am always happy to stay home and greet all the little ones that come out in their fairy and super-hero costumes. The first hour it starts to get dark is wonderful... all the little ones come to our door. It's the older ones that ring the doorbell later in the night that gets me annoyed.
What is a good cut-off for trick-or-treaters? If it's a school night I say 8:30 since my kids have to get ready for bed then and be asleep by 9pm for school the next day. Hearing the doorbell again and again is not great way of getting them off to Dreamland.
This year Halloween falls on a Friday. I am a little nervous how late the teens will be out. I think the official age to stop going door to door for free candy is when you don't need a parent to take you treating. Is that too harsh?
Well, I hope everyone has a great time and most of all a safe time. I hope there are more "treaters" out than "trickers"!
Now here is my week in review....
