Tonight was trick or treat night in our neighborhood. Z went as Mater from the Cars movie. M went as Spiderman. Most of the kids go out early in our neighborhood so we decided to wait 45minutes after the start time and then go with the kids (leaving a basket of candy at the door). It worked out pretty well because by the time we left the neighborhood was getting quiet. The kids got a ton of candy because people who had over bought candy wanted to give it away when they saw things slowing down. We carried plastic bags so the kids could empty their buckets when they got full. The buckets tip over easy and both kids were having a hard time carrying them once they started to get full. I think emptying their buckets into plastic bags that we carried also resulted in more candy for the kids.
We’ll let them enjoy it for a week and then start giving it away.
Happy Halloween everyone!
