We so love Halloween in this house. The expectantly knock-knock-knocking on neighbor's door. The wandering about in the dark with friends and other trick or treaters who are somehow instant friends as we share the black asphalt and the dark night together. And finally the counting and sorting and savoring of treats before the "aww mom" teeth brushing and bed.
We've toyed with the idea of hitting up one of those neighborhoods where people drive from all around to visit, we'd be some of those "drive-in" trick or treaters, because the candy is of the best quality and the houses sit in the neatest of little rows and are so very ripe for the picking. All things a nine year old boy must take into consideration when making his plan of attack. Do you have older little ones? Will you be driving to any sort of anywhere tonight?
Sean has been in bed with a fever all day, and I've so willingly tucked myself in right next to him. It may be our job this year to stay home to hand out candy, we'll see. The funny thing with these two little brothers here is that Tyty will likely come home from school, see his sick little Sean, and snuggle in right next to him. They are just sweet that way.
Perhaps it'll be a night for spooky(ish) movies and popcorn and snuggling. Perhaps.
