welcoming trick or treatsters

it's almost trick or treat time...
mr. and mrs are out of the closet and
are hanging at the front door 
ready, to greet any visitors.

we live on a wonderful street... 
the sidewalks are well lit and the porches are wide and welcoming, 
perfect for little and not so little trick or treaters.

 we're expecting anywhere between 60 and 80 knocks on our door.
rain or no rain... 
the numbers have been consistent over the years.

only once, 
did i run out of treats 
and had to borrow from my children's loot.
(i think... the cavity count was less that year)

this might be the last halloween my children will be trick or treating.
one has already opted to help hand out goodies.

they are at the age when they no longer believe 
in the tooth fairy, the easter bunny or santa claus.
and somehow, they have figured out (on their own) the difference 
between good and bad chocolate.

either way, whether roaming the neighbourhood or handing out treats,
both will be in costumes, 
something they both love and will never give up.

so bring on the ghoulish games....
wishing everyone a happy and safe halloween !!!
