Good-bye, Halloween! Hello, November!
Packing away the Halloween goodies for another year... although there's still candy left in my pumpkin that needs to be moved somewhere temporarily...or eaten...
I had such fun yesterday on the Trick-or-Treat Blog Hop, reading other people's true life ghost stories and recommendations for scary movies, scary stories, and scary Halloween drink ideas! Hope you were able to hop around, too, and read some of the other blog entries!
I did go actual door-to-door trick-or-treating with my daughter and her friends, to two different neighborhoods: one in Chatham, where the block goes all out and hangs lights in trees and scary music and machine-made fog wafts along the breeze...there's even a traffic cop at the entrance to the neighborhood to help the little ones cross the street.
The other neighborhood was in my town of Harwich, and it was kind of dark and spooky. It went in a circle, too, but without the lights and music. Other bands of kids roamed the streets, but with less small kids and less parental supervision. The people answering their doorbells, however, were just as friendly (or more so in some cases) and the girls all had a great time with both experiences. And came home with tons of treats, which they emptied into piles on my daughter's bedroom floor and traded madly until parents came to take them home.
Speaking of treats, I owe a Treat in my blog hop giveaway. I used the free random generator at Random.org and the winner of the necklace is.... Louann Carroll! Congrats Louann! Please contact me with your mailing info and I'll get that necklace into the mail for you.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!
