Getting Ready





Pumpkins and bats and leaves on the wall
waiting for ghosts and goblins to call.


Everyone knows they want a sweet treat.
I had to find something I won't eat.

  1. Did you?
    I would have to resort to peppermint. Or ginger. And if pushed would consume them too. Sigh.

    1. I'm okay with this stuff...candy corn, ring pops, fruit chews....if it's not chocolate or chips I'm really not tempted.

  2. My downfall is Almond Joy. Most kids don't like them and there are usually some left for me. That is always my plan.

  3. I'm waiting for the day before. I like your strategy. I guess I shouldn't buy peanut butter cups, then.

  4. That's the challenge for me--there are candies that don't tempt me...none of them are chocolate!

    1. There you go then...just don't buy chocolate. I'm going to feel like such a big gyp handing out this stuff but at least I won't be tempted.

  5. Luckily it isn't a big thing around here, but it's catching on in the suburbs that have a lot of school age children.

    1. It's a harmless holiday and lots of fun for the kiddies....for some of the big kiddies too.
