Week in Review: Halloween Edition

by Kay Lynn

Jack O'Lantern

We don’t get trick or treaters since moving to our gated community a few years ago.  Not only is the gate a deterrent, but there are very few kids in the condo homes here.

I miss seeing the fun costumes even though there is the benefit of not having to worry about candy.  Been there, done that!  Maybe next year I’ll go out with my grandson for his first time.

I didn’t have a roundup last week due to hosting the Yakezie carnival so settle in for all the good reading today!

That’s the one thing I will miss moving back into an apartment complex; the trick-or-treaters! And my husband curling up into a ball in his leafy suit scaring them as they exit our gate. 😉

Bit late here, thanks for the link :). I am sure it will be very fun to go out with the grandson after the break of a few years.

Thanks for the mention!

We got hardly any trick or treaters … neighborhoods go through transitions and maybe many of the kids in my neighborhood are starting to feel they’re too old to trick or treat. I wish they still came … at least then I wouldn’t have a bowlful of candy in my kitchen.

Mandy, one way I would deal with leftover candy is to take it to the office. They’ll eat anything:)

Also, I buy candy I don’t like — skittles.
