Happy Halloween

Halloween Trick or Treaters get the candies

On top of Halloween being a family member's birthday, tonight
I was teaching my once a week writing course, and my students
had a test.  So this was a special day all round.

We set up a table on the front porch, with a big bowl of
candy, and Steven sat at the other side of the porch
and told the children to take two candies each.  At
the end of the evening, he went in to get something,
and when he came out some children had done us
the favour of emptying the bowl.  Excellent.

Happy Halloween.

You are so lucky to have children trick or treat. I love the costumes❣️ We get ready with our carved pumpkin and have candies (the type we can eat afterwards 😂) but we rarely get anyone. The children tend to get driven to the neighborhoods with closer houses. Everyone helps contribute candys for those areas that are overwhelmed

We are lucky Evelyn,

to have a lot of children on our street. And our house is across from
a school. So the Trick or Treat traffic is pretty busy here.
