Trick or Treat?

It's that time of year again when all the little girls and boys of the neighborhood get all dressed up and go out searching for candy. The parents love doing this because it gives them an excuse to taste test the candy to make sure there's nothing wrong with it....and they don't get one guilty thought at doing this. LOL I remember when Jenn was little and us taking her around the neighborhood. Half the fun was thinking up the costume that she would wear. Now she has 4 boys to get ready...good grief. She always makes them come up with their own out of what is in the house. She buys makeup and all that but the costumes themselves they have to put together. I think it's a great way for them to express themselves. Anybody can go out and buy one of those costumes at Wally World or Target....which are too expensive in my thinking.
I was just wondering if anyone of you had a great trick or treating story to share. Here's mine:
When Jenn was little, about 4 years old, we were down at my parents house and my father decides to get dressed up and go to one of our cousins houses and try to scare them. Well Jenn had her costume on (please don't ask me what it was because for the life of me I can't remember) and my father was dressed as a bum with a paper bag with holes cut out over his head. Well my cousin couldn't guess who it was because they weren't expecting a little girl to be there with such a creature. Also, if Jenn hadn't been along, my cousin would of gotten out his showgun and shot my father in the butt as he was running away. LOL Fun was had by all when Dad finally took off the paper bag.
P.S. that was the last time Jenn went trick or treating with my father...just too dangerous. LOL
As always, Barbara

We always loved to decorate for Halloween. One year, my husband got all dressed in dark clothes, and put on his army mask. It was this dark green thing that covered his face, only the eyes and mouth was open. Anyway, he stood very still, behind the tree in the front yard. As the kids would come up, they just thought he was stuffed clothes. But, when this family of 6 kids came along, he jumped out from the tree. The kids ran screaming, not just fun screaming, but scared to death screaming. They knocked the dad over so hard, he flipped into the street. I mean he really did a flip in the air. I was so afraid he was dead. But, he was okay, and came up to us, and said that, that was the best Halloween he had been a part of in years. I wish we had that on video, I know we would have won AFV
