This year was a bit different than last year.
The ‘bit’ that was different?
Was that we didn’t trick or treat.
For the first time, ever.
See, Chris was supposed to go out of town and be gone all weekend.
And the thought of trick or treating, in the pitch black darkness? With seven fearless, costumed, small people?
Left me shaking in my boots.
And not a whole lot leaves me shaking in my boots.
So, weeks ago, I’d made a deal with the kids. Instead of going out for candy, we’d hunt candy, safely and snugly, at home.
Which really worked for me, for lots of reasons.
So, we got a bunch of mini-flashlights.
And a whole lotta candy.
And let the kids loose to hunt the candy we’d hidden all over the house.
In the dark.
Dressing up in costumes was a last minute decision.
Asher brought out the box o’ Halloween stuff and the kids had free rein to pick any and every combination of get up their little hearts desired.
Which made for some interesting outfits.
Another reason that staying in really worked for us this year.
Eventually, we did manage to get around to dinner.
Definitely secondary to a whole lot of candy consumption.
Homemade pizza caused a few of the kids to drop the candy.
If only momentarily.
First ever Halloween staying in?
An unqualified success.
Hope your Halloween was wonderful, and safe, too.
