Harry Potter, Miz Bumble Bee and G.I. Joe Ninja are ready for the big night. The kids had a lot of fun going trick-or-treating in their Nini and Papa's neighborhood (which is much more inviting than ours). They even got to go through a haunted house, which was a homemade treat right down the street. I had to stay at the house and help pass out candy since my Achilles tendinitis is still not healed. That was fun, too.
My dad shared a funny story that happened about ten years ago on Halloween. A group of kids came trick-or-treating and one boy was suspiciously bent down when Dad answered the door. After he closed the door, my dad turned around to find a little kitten in their living room.
So the next time the doorbell rang, he chose a cute little girl and said, "Have I got a special treat for you."
The princess excitedly answered, "Really?"
My father handed over the kitten. "Here you go," he said.
The child was so excited. I bet that was a Halloween she will never forget...and neither will her parents!
