Quilt With Us


Happy Halloween! I cannot believe that it is Halloween and the last day of October! Reading that some of you have snow…WOW!

I enjoy Halloween very much as does my husband…that might explain the $186 he spent on candy yesterday! Yes, that is a 1 in front of the 8! We saw my niece at the store and she was laughing at our cart because she said it looked like a cart the store filled to attract customers to buy the candy. One lady actually started digging through it as we stood there talking. My husband, very protective of his stash said, “Hey, go over there and get your own, they have plenty”! LOL!
I must share my least favorite trickster and my most favorite treater with you ( as I hear a child right now at the door telling my husband…WOW that’s a butt load of great candy!)

My least favorite - a young couple walking around with a Baby, a real little Baby in a stroller no less, who most likely is not on whole food yet let alone candy! The husband stayed at the bottom of the drive with the baby in stroller while the wife made her way to the door with the little plastic pumpkin in hand to “trick or treat” for the baby! Yeah right!

My most favorite treater - a young girl (about 10) dressed as a cow pushing her disabled friend in a wheelchair, trick or treating for her friend too. She very politely asked if I could please give her some for her friend because she cannot climb the steps to ask herself. She pushed that wheelchair up every driveway and through the entire neighborhood! I asked her where she lived; it was about 8 blocks away! That’s a friend and a wonderful young girl!

We have a lot of candy left this year. I heard that some dentists are paying kids $1 per pound for their Halloween candy. They will send the candy to our troops overseas. I'm trying to find a participating dentist to take this candy off of my hands - but I'm not selling, just want to give it away! We have friends and family over to eat & see the kids every year, we love it!

I relate to your least favorite, but I didn't take any candy. I'm small 5' 1/2" and then only about 95 lbs and every Halloween, I use to dress up as a witch when my kids were little until a few years ago. The first few years, I went early to the neighbors houses and trick or treated. When I wouldn't take any candy and told them why, they asked how they would know me when I wasn't dressed up. I told them the same size, but with dishwater blond hair. Silver grey now. OH, did I have fun!!!!! Now, we hardly get any kids here now, so I just buy the kind of candy that I like. I do get to eat almost all of it. I don't buy $186.00 worth, Just about 4-5 bags. Cold out, but no rain and that's suppose to start later this evening. Happy Halloween.

We went to our son's and handed out candy so they could take the boys out. The 4 yr. old came in and he kept wanting to give his candy out to the kids that came after him. it was cute. Cold night with flurries!

We've had your least favorite at our door more than once. My favorite treater story was one of our neighbors, a local policeman with three young children. He and his wife were out trick or treating with their children and another friend, a single mom with four or five of her own. He had the youngest, a toddler, in his arms, carrying her and talking to her about all the things they were seeing, while he held the hand of the next oldest, a little boy. The others were clustered around too, sharing their friends' dad. I knew that he had worked a long shift, and within a very few hours would be on duty again--but that was an act of loving kindness if I have ever seen one.

I can relate to your least favorite story. We have adults dressed up who come and hold out a pillow case which is usually half full by the time they get here. I love your favorite story. That little girl has a big heart to want to push her disabled friend or family member around on Halloween to get her treats. Bless her little heart.
