What a Treat!

The boys so enjoyed their evening of trick or treating. It was Stuart's first time. He was so amazed that you can just go up to a neighbors home and say "trit or treat" for candy. Dave and I decided he only needed to do about 5 houses in our cul de sac while the older ones raided many more. It is always a delight to see the kids after they have come home with their loot. They each dump out their candy and salivate over the sugar wide eyed in amazement. No training was needed even for Stuart. He would go upstairs to his room then locate to Carter's room and back downstairs dumping and filling his pumpkin container for the twentieth time or so. It was comical. Every year Carter and Cole divide their candy then trade. The hottest item this year was the gummy worm that looked real. Cole traded but decided he wanted to relinquish finding out that Carter was going to take it to school to gross out the girls acting like it was a real worm that he was going to digest. Cole wants to gross out the girls as well. It was decided that the worm will be cut in half. School is half day tomorrow so it will have to wait till next week. Oh the life of boys.

Did I ever tell you about the fake snake we had? It would appear in the most lovely places (panty and pajama drawers, pillowcases, in a jacket, etc). Hmmmmm it would always be in my stuff not Dave's. I hid the snake for good reason. I am not sure where it went. Great grandma Johnson had given the snake to Carter prior to her death. She had found it. I tell you it was very real looking. Kinda creepy. I might surprise one of the boys sometime soon with a new snake. Most likely with Carter as he is the jokester of the home. Gotta search for it at a store.

Here's to good memories.
