We break all the rules when it comes to Halloween.
- Carry a flashlight....we don't.
- Don't go inside the houses....we not only go inside, but sometimes we sit down at their kitchen table. They usually always take a photo of the children in their get ups.
- Don't wear masks that can block the childs' vision.....hahahaha. One year the two boys went as headless men and they had boxes on their heads. They could hardly see a thing...and it was hilarious!
- The parent must check all the candy before the children eat it....my kids are nibbling at it the whole time they are trick or treating. The homemade fudge is amazing!
Another couple was going to be away for Halloween so they gave us a 3 1/2 lb. bag of candy last week. I didn't know whether to thank them or just cry when they handed it to the kids.
The only down fall is the part about getting in and out of the van so many times. I remember the tragic night as a child when my wings got caught in the car door.
Driving with the 7 of us in the van is a little trying at the best of times. But on Halloween night, it's just unbearable. So, I drive for the first round of houses and then come home and Terry takes them for the second round.
I have so many wonderful Halloween memories with the kids and the neighbours.
But really....for the kids, it's all about the loot.
