Halloween 2012

 I was worried that we wouldn’t have any trick-or-treaters. So I put out Jeni’s ceramic pumpkin with a candle in it. It is on the porch steps.  I couldn't find any matches but I looked up in the bedside table in the spare bedroom and thank goodness there was a match book in there.

I also carved a little pie pumpkin and put it on the table by the door.

I had 3 bags of fun size candy bars. Butterfingers, Snickers and Nestle’s Crunch. I have 3 left. YES! That is about 70 bars.
I will leave the lights on for a little longer. Maybe till 8 and then blow out all the candles and keep the rest of the candy. 
While I was getting supper for Dad, Mom was in charge of the door. If she saw someone on the porch she was supposed to ring that bell. My it is loud! But it worked.  

First Halloween with trick or treaters for many years.  The farm hardly ever had any.

One mother was waiting for her kids and walking her standard poodle. A big white one with a lion cut around her face. I said “Nice dog” and she said “It’s really a Lab”. It took me a minute to figure that out. Too funny.

My favorite girl costume was a black handlebar moustache.  My favorite boy costume came as a leaf pile.

Mom made me give her one of the leftover bars.  She took a Butterfinger.
