Ghoulies and Ghosties



Actually, we had neither ghoulies or ghosties for Halloween. We did have twin witches and a Clone Trooper, though. Halloween is a little different for us since we live out in the country. Our kids have never been trick-or-treating from house to house but we do usually go to the trunk-or-treat at our church. Also, the weekend before Halloween is always the school's Fall Fest. These two activities provide us with PLENTY of fun and candy so I never feel like the kids are missing out on anything. Besides, even if we did live in a neighborhood I'm not sure that I would be real keen on my kids going from house to house taking candy from strangers. I know it was fun when we were little but the idea really freaks me out as an adult.

Too weird?

I like your way better...and no they are not missing out on anything at all! Even in the city...I don't know of many people who allow trick or treating door to door.

Okay...maybe I'm a horrible parent, because I took my kids door to door in our neighborhood. But I feel pretty safe in my neighborhood. Maybe I'm just naive...don't know.

We have one little community around here that we ALL go to for trick or treating. The fire station with their trucks and ambulances and the police department come too. It is a blast!

Sara- Of course you're not a bad parent!!!! You know many of the people in your neighborhood personally, that's different.
