Trick-or-Treaters Go Green
A friend of mine, her husband and son came to our house on Sunday evening, Halloween, donned in bright green costumes. Tim is a tall man so in his Jolly Green Giant costume he was amazingly authentic. Stephanie was Mrs. Jolly Green Giant and the little guy, Jake, was the cutest pea pod I've ever seen.
Jake's costume was purchased for him by his grandma but Stephanie created Tim's and her own. I was honestly over joyed when I saw them at our door. Other than the totally green family's visit, our Halloween evening was rather quiet. Many of the families in our neighborhood have children who've grown up and moved away. We're lucky if our doorbell rings a dozen times on Halloween evening . For several years now, I buy candy that Lon and I like so any remaining won't be left in the pantry to harden and eventually be thrown out.
My personal favorite candy treat is fun-size Three Musketeers. What's yours?
