Perverts and Foreclosures

The girls are really excited about trick or treating this year. It is the first time we are doing it in our own neighborhood. According to the news, with a huge amount of house in foreclosure it may be a quiet Halloween. So when the houses are dark there is a good chance that it may really be vacant instead of people not wanting to give out candy and are just hiding in their house with the lights out. Also in the news, There are letting parents know that Sexual predators will have a pumpkin on their door with a NO CANDY written across it. So we are either going to be skipping houses because of the economy or skipping because of society. Actually, According to www.watchdog.com there are no known predators in our zip code.
Jeff is mad because I bought pretzels to give out this year, He thinks kids will egg our house in protest. I think he is angry that I didn't buy Reese's peanut butter cups which are his favorite.

Thanks for the head's up on the pumpkins... thankfully there's no sex offenders in my neighborhood listed either.

I agree on the quiet due to foreclosures. We have plenty of those here too.

I am laughing because I just purchased some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to hand out. Send Jeff to my house!

One thing I miss the most about Halloween time is going to the pumpkin patch and riding in the hay wagon to pick my pumpkin back in New England. Getting them from the bin at Wal-Mart doesn't feel the same.

I expect to get a lot of kids this year since there are not that many people left in my neighborhood either.
