Thinking About Halloween

Many grandparents look forward to seeing their grandchildren in their Halloween costumes. I have many wonderful memories of taking our children trick or treating when they were young, including the year my 80 year old grandmother went with us! She had never been!

Another memory from those years is the house we would go to where the lady always gave my children fruit. Yes, it was a healthy snack but the last thing they wanted was a banana! They were sweet and always thanked her but when we got back to the car they gave me their fruit.

Our favorite house to go to was an elderly lady who adored our children and made them ham and biscuits and fried pies. Now that was a real treat!


This is a blog hop! Link up and leave a comment! Do you ever sneak your favorite treat out of their bag? Come on now, be honest!

    I am set for Halloween – have a basket full of costumes (for pretend play) that we can choose from – depending on Halloween weather (it’s rained the last 2 years here)

    When my kids were little, i used take an item or two from their bags.

    I love the day after Halloween as all the candy is 1/2 at the store.

    For my grandson’s first Halloween, I wanted to be responsible so I handed out raisin boxes. I’ll never make that mistake again. It’s candy and fun all the way now.

  11. I look forward to seeing what people dress up as for Halloween too! Have a fun one this year!

  12. What a wonderful memory of your grandma going with you, Teresa! Thanks for sharing with us at #OMHGWW, hope to see you next week!
