This year Halloween was low key in our family. It's like an every other year kind of thing for us. We did the school carnival on Friday night and trick-or-treating last night. I had been thinking the past couple days that I wanted to show our kids what trick-or-treating was like for me as a kid. It's hard being out in the country and having the houses spaced so far apart. But then as we went the rounds, I realized that because we are out in the country, people give A LOT MORE (and better) candy than those in a subdivision. Also the kids (and you) stay warm because the only way to get around is to drive. We went to 15 houses and the kids came back with a little more than half a bag of candy. Three times as much as the number we went too. So in the end, it was easier, faster, and better. I better stop thinking that the grass is greener in the other field.
P.S. I am going to start early on next year and it will be fabulous!
