The candy rush is over–we only got about 30 trick-or-treaters, which I expected, so each kid averaged about 10 pieces of candy. Yay for them! Anja even was allowed half a fun size Twix as a snack after supper. She accompanied us to the door every time the doorbell rang, and was quite enamored with the costumed munchkins shouting “Trick or Treat!” She wasn’t scared in the least, but instead pointed at one child after another, saying, “That? That? That?” (It’s her way of asking “What is that?”)
A little after 8:00, we scrammed out of here and to Chipotle, where we waited in line with a bunch of other people (only for about 10-15 minutes) wearing tin foil items and got a free burrito apiece! Yay for us! I think this may become a new Halloween tradition–stopping for some Mexican after trick-or-treating.
On our way home from there, we stopped at Target and bought a clearance Halloween costume (and…uh…more candy) that should fit Anja for the next couple of Halloweens. Yay for Anja! And now we will have something answer next year when people ask what she will be for Halloween.
Another thing I crave this time of year is Home Improvement. I don’t really know why other than that Tim Allen always put together amazing Halloween and Christmas episodes. So now that Anja is in bed (over an hour later than normal) we’re going to cozy up and watch one. I can’t wait!
How was your evening? Spooky? Mundane?
