Due to the freakish storm that hit us last Saturday and the heavy snow that shut down power to over 70% of our town for a week, Trick-or-Treating was wisely postponed until this past Saturday and even then it was only allowed from 4 to 6 PM.
This was a smart decision because there are still downed wires and tree limbs across many roads.
Thankfully, we never lost power and had minor tree damage.
Our kids were excited to be able to dress up and knock on doors for candy. Our neighborhood is full of kids and for two hours late Saturday afternoon, there were ninjas, Darth Vaders, pilots, and Cleopatras on the run.
We walked the mile and a half stopping to chat with neighbors,
let little ones greet our Pup-Pup, take a few photos, and collect more treats.
They sorted their goodies and were allowed one treat before having a late supper. I made sure they all brushed their teeth really well before bedtime!
Three favorite childhood memories:
1. dressing up
2. having candy to eat
3. getting to be with friends doing the same thing
I'm glad it's over. Now, what to do with four bags of candy?
