This year for Halloween my daughter has to go to school and take a test. She will have to miss taking Zander and Zayden out trick or treating this year. My wife will be putting on her witch costume and taking the kids out instead so they don't miss it. I will be at home dressed as a giant grape handing out treats to all the vampires and princesses.

I finally broke down the other day and bought the Halloween candy. I made the mistake of buying Whoopers, Reese's and Hershey's. Bad move. They went quickly among the family. I now have to scramble to find goodies to give to the ghouls. I found some old pens, keychains, condiment packages, moist towelettes, old diet energy bars and a few almonds. I am sure I will be the hit of the neighborhood with these. Have a wonderful, fun and safe Halloween. I truly love seeing the kids getting to stretch their imaginations for an evening. Happy Halloween
