Halloween is coming!

It is Wednesday! Halloween will soon be here! Do you have your little ghosts and goblins ready? We are so excited.

We will have a lot of trick or treaters, but this year I opted for quantity over quality. YEP, I am going to be one of "those" people. It is just that we easily have 200 trick or treaters on any given Halloween. I have bought bags and bags and bags(usually about 8 total) I always get chocolates the good stuff and give 2-3 pieces a child, I always run VERY close to running out. Not anymore!

I am not giving to anyone that comes without a costume this year and I am not giving to any one that is over 15 not T.O.T with a sibling!

I am giving twizzlers this year, I have about 400. See we have 853 homes in this neighborhood, (we are huge) so the children will get plenty. It makes me so angry to see unaccompanied children walking up and down my street with king size pillow cases so full they can't even carry them and NO costume! It just shows a lack of breeding and gratitude. Seems so greedy. Now that isn't the majority and I would venture to say that they DON'T live in this neighborhood. MANY people come and drop their children off here because we are so big. They come pick them up about 9:30-10:00 PM and that is just too late for T.O.T

Yes, I may be the Halloween Grinch, but I just can't take it! So in an effort to curb some of this behavior I am changing MY habits. After all, we should start within ourselves right? I may even start handing out Christian tracks instead of candy. As a servant to my God I am supposed to take every opportunity to witness for him. This is a time of year where people are coming to my home and I could spread THE WORD.

OK, so that is my rant for the day! Please forgive me, this just really irks me!

I am on my way to work at The Republican Headquarters for the night. Don't forget to wear RED on Friday and if your of the female persuasion RED lipstick on election day!

Oh shoot. I don't even own red lipstick. It makes me look WEIRD. But I will definitely wear red!

This is the first time that we have ever lived in a neighborhood. We don't celebrate Halloween really - the kids do parties with friends, or go to their grandparents business for Trick or Treat on Main Street - so I don't even know how much candy to buy. I sure don't want the stuff lying around the house so I am not sure what to do.

Work hard!
