So Many Kids, So Much Fun
I’m so excited I have to share! Not that I expect any of you to be excited with me, but that’s ok :p
I was hoping for a big trick-or-treat turnout this year and thats exactly what I got. We almost ran out of candy and we definitely ran out of toys. I was a little sad about that. I love how excited the little ones get for the toys. Next year I will be prepared! I told the kids one toy only, but those little devils! sneaking extras before I could catch ’em and I didn’t want to tell them to put something back and make them sad. lol.
Part of my enthusiasm for trick-or-treaters comes from being childfree. I don’t want my own kids. I don’t even feel comfortable being around other people’s kids for too long, but I love giving presents. I like to see their faces light up and enjoy that brief moment of happiness without any of the awkwardness that would come from longer encounters. I am very very awkward with kids past the first, “hello aren’t you cute” greeting.
We didn’t have a lot of decor and I didn’t even have a costume this year, but I had wonderfully dramatic bat wing earrings, so that has to count for something, right?
And now, some pictures:
The treat table (candy, halloween dolls, halloween character paratroopers, candy corn playing cards, pumpkin checkers);
I had many more dolls, about 20 I think, but only a few in the buckets at a time.
Our minimal, but cute outdoor decor:
My bat earrings, because I love them and you should too 😉
