Trick-or-Treat! Sorry Kids, There’s Nothing Left For You to Eat

26 Oct

Of all the reasons to get excited about owning a new home, I have to admit that having trick-or-treaters come to the door on Halloween was at the top of my list. As a kid, I always loved getting all dressed up in my costume, and once I was too old to trick-or-treat, I enjoyed handing out candy at my parents’ front door. But a long stint in apartment life has left me longing to hand out morsels of sugary goodness to the neighborhood children, and this year I’ll finally get my wish.

Well, maybe. A Costco opened up near us last weekend (more on that later), so Husband and I thought the perfect purchase for our inaugural trip would be Halloween candy (you gotta buy it in bulk, right?). We wanted to make sure that we stay in the good graces of our pint-size neighbors, so four 5-pounds bags of candy bars later, we walked out of Costco ready for this weekend. However, once I heaved all of the candy onto the kitchen counter, I made a comment to myself about possibly overdoing it.

Apparently, that was all the invitation Husband needed. The next day, I noticed a small hole had been cut in the corner of one of the bags as if a mouse had gotten into it. Once I found wrappers in the trash can, my suspicions were confirmed. And you know what happens when you give a mouse a cookie – er – candy bar. His wife is going to want one too. And every night that has been our dessert after dinner. If these kids don’t get here quick, it won’t be the ghosts and goblins that are scary – it will be our waistlines!

    I made the mistake of dumping our into a big pumpkin and it is literally about 3/4 gone from Matt and I sneaking pieces. The sad part is that neither of us are eating it in front of each other but we know we are both sneaking it!! Haha!!
