We could not have had better weather for Trick or Treat. It was a gorgeous warm and sunny day, the evening did not even get chilly until after dark. When I was a kid Trick or Treating in N.MI, temperatures over 32 degrees and no snow was perfect weather. Many Halloweens I remember Trick or Treating in my winter coat, which always covered the best parts of my costumes.
Wee One made a haul, especially at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. We only went to about 1/3 of the houses in our tiny community but he still filled 2 huge bags. Since our itty bitty town doesnt have a whole lot of trick or treaters, the kind citizens tend to give out huge handfuls of candy, good candy too. Not icky, stale, cheap, dollar store stuff either……..were talking Reese Cups, M&M’s, Sweetarts (my fave) stuff like that….Son #1 was a big helper! He walked Wee One to many doors. After about 45 minutes, he wanted to go over to his friend’s Grandma’s house and scare the other Trick or Treaters (they had a graveyard, prison, scary forest set up) I let him stay there until 8:30 (they had a small party afterwards) then I picked him up.
Wee One and I hit Auntie Alicias, Auntie S’s, and G’s. All 3 go all out for every Holiday decorating and Halloween was especially good this year at all 3 houses.
The BBQ/Roping was a huge party. A big success for the hosts. We did not stay long at all, barely an hour. I would have loved to have partied and roped long into the night but Trick or Treat took precedent over my fun.
If your wondering why our pumpkin was not carved…..long story there. Anyhow, I didnt trust my hurried self the last couple of days to be carving anything up……
