Around 5:30pm the kids started showing up and quickly I realized . . . I may run out of candy!! I tried to balance making dinner and answering the door while Luke worked late.
But even after being creative in stretching the candy out we ran out of all sugar by 7pm. When Luke came home he ran to the store but by then we’d been without candy (with the lights out) for an hour!! So now we have candy and no trick-or-treators. This may be contributed to the rain as well.
Luke told me he found out at work that our neighborhood is THE neighborhood to go trick-or-treating in the area. Oh well, lessons learned.
For now I think I’ll enjoy “The Great Pumpkin” (Charlie Brown) and eat some chocolate!
