The pumpkins were carved, and the seeds toasted to perfection. The girls’ costumes were laid out, ready for them to don when they arrived home from school. The candles were placed inside the jack-o-lanterns, waiting to be lit, and the cookies and goodies for the evening’s festivities were baked and ready to be laid out. And then, we received a call from the school. Leah had been injured while playing mine tag.
After a trip to the doctor’s office and an x-ray, it was determined that she had broken her foot. Undeterred, Leah was determined to go trick-or-treating with her sisters. So, Brian got out the wagon and loaded her up and away they went to pillage the neighborhood, while I stayed home and
ate all the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups handed out candy.
After they returned, friends making the trick-or-treating rounds stopped by to warm up, roast marshmallows, drink hot chocolate and enjoy cookies and conversation.
|Cookies and s'more supplies, ready to go!|

|That looks like more fun than walking, anyway.|
