Can you tell who is who?
This year I'm kicking back and doing the candy handout while dad takes the kids trick-or-treating.
None of us liquor swilling moms will be taking the kids out this year. I'll be doing the liquor swilling at home instead.
Hopefully no one will get lost like last year.
As for the candy collection the kids will bring home, I plan to let them pick out a few of their favorite pieces and trade the rest for:
Brendon: Baseball cards to add to his collection. There is a baseball collecting shop I discovered in downtown Manchester where we'll bring him.
Jessica: Some Littlest Petshop pets to add to the pile she has.
Jacob: A CD to play in his Racecar CD player.
There really isn't a need for the loads of candy they'll have tonight (what would I have said when I was their age?)
The costumes, the experience of going door to door visiting neighbors, and trying to figure out which friend is disguised in costume will be what Halloween is all about.
