Living way out of town we don't receive many trick-or-treaters. We usually only get three. Yes, three. One is the daughter of a couple of friends of ours and the other two are really young children that are friends of ours as well.
Since we only have three visitors...and it is so much fun to see how they are dressed since we don't see many.... we do things a little different around here.
I always have pumpkin cookies, cakes and squares ready along with hot apple cider and hot coffee for the adults. They come in, sit and visit, have a treat and when they head out the door, the children receive a trick or treat bag. The bags are really quite large and include a couple of little toys that I think they will enjoy.
So the pumpkin is ready .....but the baking has to be done yet. I won't bake until the day before or else Bob, Luke and Pasie will have everything eaten! This time of year is what I term 'the holiday season', as after Halloween is Thanksgiving, then deer hunting time and then Christmas so most of my time is spent in the kitchen cooking and baking or else I am decorating the house.
Busy times are almost here but I love them!
What do you do for Halloween?
Linda, please email me at tattoolady51 at hotmail dot com concerning the clothespin bags. Thanks! =)
