Happy (belated) Halloween every one! Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays... you get to dress up, you don't have to buy anyone a present, you don't have to begrudgingly spent time with your family (unless you like your family, that's cool!) and you get candy! I had planned to get this posting out yesterday right after our Halloween was over, but with kids, you know how it goes.
Dave and Edie carved the Jack-o-Lantern together. Edie ate a raw pumpkin seed. If she suddenly becomes very round, I'll know it germinated.
Dave stayed home to hand out goodies to our visitors, while I drove the kids into town to Trick-or-Treat with Edie's best bud Nathan (and his momma and daddy).
In true Upstate New York fashion, as soon as we started walking through the neighborhood, it started to snow. I'm glad I bundled up those kids nice and tight! The firehouse welcomed families in for coffee, hot cocoa, and donuts, but best of all, to warm up!
We headed back to Silly Goose Farm, and stopped in to our neighbor, Mrs. Duffy's (aka Lorraine) house. Her house looks like a magazine, and she even let the kids take a baby pumpkin home with them. I was hoping I would get home and all the goodies would be gone, but we didn't get a single Trick-or-Treater! So, now I have batches of homemade Halloween classics here, hoping I can pawn them off on my clients in meetings with them this week. Also, I will be preparing for an out-of-town conference over the weekend and into next week, so I thought I'd share my recipes for these treats. You'll have to stay-tuned to see what's in store (Oooooo... more Halloween suspense!).
I hope you all had a great holiday! Tell me, what did you dress as, and what is your favorite Halloween treat? I'd love to know!
