Last night we had the builder in trying to fix our stairs. Richard was home, but on working still. The boys carved their pumpkins and then we headed out to grab dinner. While we were driving home (before 6pm) people had already started trick or treating. Why you ask? Because there was finally a break in the rain.
The temperatures we perfect yesterday, but it was far from dry. So I think as soon as there was any kind of break in the weather, people just said… go!
Well my boys had to come home and eat dinner, then finish prepping to go out. No worries, at least it was almost dark when they left. But, they both decided to toss their rain coats over their costumes. It was mainly drizzling, but there were a few patches of down pours.
Richard and I sat in the garage and handed out the candy. It was nice that the boys were able to join another group of kids their age and head out trick or treating.
Richard and I popped across to some of the other families who were handing out candy and chatted between lulls in the crowds.
We certainly do not get the huge groups we got in FL. We could easily have just used 1 Costco size bag and that is with giving 3/4 candies to each child. Oh well, the extras and all of Blake and Colby’s candies that they didn’t want was dropped off at their school today. Their school collects candy and other treats and makes stocking to ship off to the troops.
All in all, it was a good night and the boys had a blast… that is all that matters.
