Tonight we will go Trick or Treating at the neighbors. We will be going to about a dozen houses. You won't believe how much junk my kids will haul home. Many of the neighbors will only get a handfull of kids. I think part of the reason that they are generous is because they are able to be with so few Trick or Treaters, but I also think that it has become a bit of a competition! Who gives out the most candy, or who makes the best popcorn balls. Don't get me wrong, I really love our little community, I just think they are killing the kids with kindness! It's nice to see the kid get a little spoiled, but again, check out the loot above from just 4 stops! I hate to admit it, but although K will get to have some treats, most of her candy is going to quietly disappear as it has for the last 4 years - yes, she was given this much candy when trick or treating as a baby!
I do have to mention one neighbor though, who buys fruit juice & even bought Halloween board books for K when she was little.
