I miss trick-or-treating!!! Thank goodness my grandson will be old enough in another year or two.....I've been Halloween-deprived too long already!!
I'm not even kidding---I was the one who had trouble giving it up, because I loved walking around seeing all the decorations and the cute little kids in costumes, smelling the delicious mingled aromas of wood smoke and baking cookies, and kicking up leaves.
I let my kids go out until they were in high school; I never did approve of teenagers who aren't even in costume going around with pillowcases, begging for candy. I figure if you're taller than most of the people who answer the door, you're too old for trick-or-treating!
We do plan to decorate, though........I didn't do anything last year because I was sick and exhausted from my job at the time and depressed to boot, but this year we'll put out the pumpkins and ghosts, and dh and I are going to dress up as pirates:wink2: Yep, you can take the girl off the trick-or-treat trail, but you can't quite take the spirit of the day out of the girl.:wink2:
