Alex and Cider were excited waiting for the trick-or-treaters.
Alex's excitement wore off quickly when my pumpkin got the most compliments. Thank you Martha Stewart! I had seen this in her magazine years ago and had always wanted to do it. I figured this year would be the year.
I filled in a couple of times for Alex to hand out candy. For the most part, I was impressed. The kids were not as greedy or rude as they had been in the past. The parents weren't asking for candy as much either. At the end of the night, Alex came in and showed me what one of the trick-or-treaters left in his candy bowl. It was refreshing to get a blessing on such a greedy night.
