The kids had a great time out Trick or Treating. Please and Thank You's were used. Lots of candy was given. Most people could not resist this little witch's charms.
(Iron Man, not Ron Burgundy ;) )
I was a bit dismayed at the lack of people participating in Beggar's night this year. We were the only house on our side of the road handing out candy for about a mile. Once you got off the main drag only about one in five homes had their porch lights on. I was sad. The kids still cleaned up, but I walked home a bit disappointed. One more thing - who gives out old fortune cookies? Really? At first we thought it was a cute idea," Oh look, they found a really original thing to hand out!" Oh. no. Those things were stale! Who hoards the free cookie they get with their dinner to hand out to kids? Karma is a female dog, my friend. End rant now. On to our new tradition.
We will be having candy pancakes on the morning after Halloween from now on. Wow they were soooooo goooooood.(Yes that many O's were necessary) All I did was add chopped Reece's Cups and Kit Kat's to my favorite pancake recipe. Serve with whipped cream and you have heaven. The Reece's pancakes had that wonderful salty/sweet quality and the Kit Kat's had a nice crunch. Don't make a whole lot of these - a little goes a long way.
Now for the pictures for the grandparents.
