Viewing the art...a very grown up thing to do :)
Sunday I put up more fall decorations around the house (thanks to Kirklands 50% off sale) and then patiently waited for trick-or-treaters to arrive.
I waited and waited and finally the doorbell rang and I got so excited. Here was my first trick-or-treater.....
As I opened the door I started to say "trick or tr...." and then it was followed by "oh, it's you." Jesse felt bad that no one had come to our house yet so I guess he thought he was doing me a favor by getting my hopes up. He would not come inside either till I gave him a piece of candy, what a kid. We did however have about 10 trick-or-treaters. I was disappointed by the turn out. I blame the City of Bartlesville for not taking a "stance" on when Halloween trick-or-treating would be...DUH it should be on Halloween, right? However many churches had their trunk-or-treats that Saturday so I am guessing many parents wanted their kids in bed at an early time for school.
The question is what would/did you do? Allow your kids to trick-or-treat on Halloween (even if it is a school night) or take them on another day? I have my opinion, but then again I don't have kids :)
Another thing, what happened to kids saying "trick-or treat," "Happy Halloween," or even "Thank you" ? A little appreciation goes along ways. The (few) kids that said those things got a very generous helping of candy from me and those that didn't...well they got the banana laffy taffy that no ones wants. Wow, that makes me sound mean.
Let's end on a happy/friendly note, Happy Halloween!
