We don't do Halloween
We dont really have any soapboxes to stand on, we just dont do halloween. Actually, I can distinctly remember our first halloween after we got married. We were in our new house in Leo and halloween was not in the plans. As the trick or treating started, we turned off all the lights and hunkered down inside of our dark house so that nobody would ring our doorbell. And, the shameful part is that when they did ring the doorbell, we didnt even answer the door. How weird would it be for us to answer the door of a entirely dark house. Anyways, halloween is just not our thing and it was not on our radar as they dont really do Halloween in Jamaica. So yesterday, we were reminded that it was halloween and the issue came up at the supper table. We discussed it around the table as a family and then in 5 minutes, we had each kids costume ready and a trip to Erin's, our neighbor, planned. I ran ahead to warn her and to offer her candy in case she had none. The kids were ready and Erin was willing. So, our "little mommy," our "baseball player," and our "Jamaican farmer" were ready for their candy conquest and they were victorious. How cute is that crew?
