>Happy Halloween?

>My hubby asked me last weekend if I wanted to buy pumpkins and a hay bale or some kind of decor for the front yard. Uhm, no. I’ve got mums in a hanging basket and an autumn wreath on the door. That, and the porch light will have to suffice to let Trick-or-Treaters know I’m home and handing out candy.

These days, with my kids grown and out of the house, Halloween means a night of ringing doorbells. And ringing doorbells means all three dogs will be barking most of the evening. Talk about a headache in the making!

I’d raid the liquor cabinet and make it a more enjoyable night, but I have to be fresh and ready to write, write, write on Nov. 1 for NaNoWriMo! Yay!!! Now that’s something I can get excited about. 😀

Later…now that the candy is gone. All five bags of it.

Yep, you read that right. Five (5) bags. All gone. Partially due to the fact that my dear hubby walked over to speak to the neighbors while I was inside getting a drink. He left the candy sitting on the porch and when he returned only a handful was left. There was a slew of kids that came by. Probably 70 or so. We were giving several pieces to each kid, but a few got the motherload.

I must admit, the rest were very polite and there were some interesting costumes. One in particular made me scratch my head – a toddler in a skunk costume. Why a skunk? Cheap costume? Kid farts a lot or has majorly stinky poops?

I guess I’ll never know.

So, how’d it go for you? See any fab costumes?
