Trick or Treating...

After dodging zombies, witches and Black Swan ballerinas at work, I raced home to go trick or treating with friends.  I managed to avoid candy and chocolate all day-a miracle but not sure I could resist Meg's bucket full of chocolate sitting out for the night.  Her candy corn has been staring at me for weeks.  I used to LOVE candy corn...


Little Dorothy (Ashley) had a trip to the ER today and was sporting a new cast on her elbow.  Luckily, her sling matched her outfit and she was in great spirits.  Elizabeth was Minnie Mouse and was accessorizing before we headed out...


They piled into their wagon and we set off...


By the second house, Elizabeth got the hang of it and was having a blast.



I loved trick-or-treating as a child.  But, things weren't so diplomatic in my house.  My brother and I took the candy collecting very seriously.  We would survey our loot as we went and would alter our path if things weren't going the right way then, we would get home and dump everything out.  My brother would put his in a large bowl and tuck it away, inventoried.  I would, of course, eat my candy like a normal child and when I was almost finished with my bowl days later, my brother would bring his out and then torment me by eating it in front of me, never sharing.  Oh, childhood memories....

My favorite Halloween candy used to be the mini Life Saver packets and M & Ms.
