How was everyone's Halloween? Ours was good. When I got home from work yesterday one of the local news channels was a couple of houses down in the cul de sac. We turned on the news & they were live talking about sex offenders. WHAT??? Do we have them in our neighborhood? Dean assured me that no we do not. Apparently, he checks the website regularly. Who knew?? The story was actually about all the precautions you should take with your kids trick or treating & how sex offenders aren't allowed to dress up, give out candy, etc.
We went to a neighbors for hot dogs, chili & all the fixings along with brownies & of course lots of candy. A couple of us just brought our candy to her house & we had an "assembly line of candy" as one kid called it.
Halloween always gets me thinking about what parents are teaching their kids. There are some really rude kids out there! Not to mention the inappropriate costumes. I mean should a 10 yr old really dress up as a homeless person & carry around a sign that says "Will work for candy or beer"?? Then there are the give ups. If you're 15 & want to trick or treat can you at least come up with a costume? Saying you're an "LSU fan" is NOT a costume. OH & to the mom that came up with her kid & had a bag & says "this is for the one in the stroller" & when you look at the street you see a kid that's less than a year old. Really mom??? You're not fooling anyone!!
Oh & I how could I forget the kids wearing the white trash bags with the words "White Trash" written on them?? Can you say give up?? These kids took it to another level. Dean was across the street & they started to walk up our driveway. No lights are on because I'm 2 houses down with our candy. Dean hollers that there's nobody home. The kids continue to the front door & one of them opens my front door! WTH kid?? Yes, I know it's my fault for leaving the door unlocked but we're in & out & Dean was across the street. Well, Dean yelled at him & off they went.
I know I sound like a Halloween scrooge which I'm really not. The majority of the kids were cute & polite & said thank you but the ones that weren't really made an impression.
