READY FOR THE TRICK OR TREATERS


HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I know that some of you don't like Halloween (and I respect your opinions) but it's always been a fun holiday for me. As a child I never associated it as a time for anything other than dressing up and going "trick or treating". I know that I had so much fun and remember my mother and aunts fixing all kinds of neat treats for kids. It was the ONLY time I remember seeing them make popcorn balls. When my children were young, Halloween was just under Christmas as a time they looked forward to coming. I'm sure those who live in subdivisions have MANY trick-or-treaters, but living where I do there isn't a huge amount. I can always count on 10 or 12 coming by. I'm ready and love pretending that I don't know who they are when my doorbell rings. I made cookies and have tons of candy ready. Hope you have a fun and safe Halloween!!

When I was growing up the little lady on the corner always made popcorn balls for Halloween. Your cookie & candy treats look yummy! Enjoy the evening.

Growing up our neighbor ALWAYS brought over popcorn balls. I've decided I'm going to make some this year, I do love them!

We live in the city now and get loads of trick or treaters-I love seeing the kids all dressed up.

Have fun,
Robin~♥

Dewey and Defford would always give me cornbread or a dill pickle (homemade). These were my favorite things in those days.
