Why I Love Trick-Or-Treating in Happy...

Last night I was again reminded of how blessed we are to live in our little community. Here are a few reasons why:
  • You don't have to get out at every house with your kids for two reasons. 1. Everyone knows them. 2. You'd never finish trick-or-treating because you'd visit too much.
  • My kids received candy from some of the same people that used to hand it out to me.
  • If you do get out with your kids, you can almost bet you'll walk away with a piece of candy, too.
  • When someone opens the door, you hear, "Come on in here."
  • The first year T.S. went trick-or-treating, a friend of ours opened both hands and gave T.S. a choice--candy or a golf ball. T.S. chose the golf ball. He's gotten a golf ball from him every year since.
  • I came away from one house with new crocheted pot holders.
  • Sadie was sad that we, "couldn't stop by Roberta's this year." How often does a 9 year old remember that a 90+ year old passed away since last Halloween? You could never leave Roberta's house without a sack of candy and a hug/kiss. She always wore bright lipstick, too.

wow that sounds wonderful! I really enjoy halloween, it has only just started here in the last few years and it is great to see all the children dressed up.

Your blog is so interesting, your town sounds a lovely place to live.

Spicy--Thanks, we love living here. I didn't know that Halloween was a "new" thing over there until I read your blog. Very interesting!

Jen--Josie would have had a ball. There's a lot to be said for your neighborhood, too.

Laura! It's so nice to meet you via your blog world! Wanted to notify you that YOU are the door prize winner over at QDT! Thanks so much for commenting.

I'm assuming you found us through Amanda Sanders. I don't think we've met... though I have been to Happy, TX before! I lived in Lubbock for about 12 years or so. I love Texas & miss it so much!!!

Looking forward to more posts!
