So Monday was Halloween…not enough Trick-or-treaters gave us a surplus of candy this year. That is not a good thing for my ongoing tonnage-loss efforts. But the yearly fun thing about Halloween is a friendly competition done between OFB TR and his daughter, and my OFNi, Tara.
Each year these two go at it with a knife, pottery tools (I assume), and a few candles. They have themselves a pumpkin carving contest…just the two of them.
And each year my OFSIL Sue sends pictures to the family for an online vote as to determine a winner. So I’m told, the loser is supposed to buy the winner a bottle of Crown – and apparently they are on an IOU system thus far.
Every year we get these fun times for sure. Thanks for sharing your talents yuze guys!
Halloween is one week from Monday. I’ve got half a bag of candy ready to dole out…come on by. I usually have candy left over each year. Last one here gets the most (and best) candy!
With my street address I need to go prowlin’ for a couple of pumpkins for craving get kids to the door. Little did I know when I bought this house years ago that location-location-location needed to be considered. My street is the primary in-n-out for everyone and homes on my block are only on one side of the street – not a bad setup really except the for the day, or maybe it’s just for the one frightful night in October.
Kids, it seems, already have a shopping savvy in them wanting to work both sides of a street for their free candy. So it is the Jack O’Lanterns that get trick-or-treaters to my street, and has them excited, or scared walking up to the door.
The many years of doing 8-12 funny, scary, crazy pumpkin cravings for Halloween night with FD and FS were suddenly paled in comparison to a “Top 10 Halloween Events” watched on, of all things, The Weather Channel last week (follow that link above for a bit of craziness celebration).
