October 31st has arrived again. Seems to come a little faster each year. Halloween is a fun time in our house. Looks like we are going to have two vampires this year - a popular costume from what I can tell. Which reminds me, I still need to sew the capes.
Our school is participating in a great program this year. I had heard a little about it last year from a sister who lives in a different state. If the kids bring in their candy from trick or treating, they get their name in a raffle and the candy gets sent to the troops overseas. Ingenious for all kids to limit how much candy they eat but especially helpful to those kids with diet concerns. They can still have fun collecting and then give a lot of it away to the troops.
Have a fun day even if you are too old for trick or treating. Put a pumpkin face on a sandwich or a pancake and remember what it was like to be a kid.
