candy countdown


Diana Card's series of Halloween paintings have put me over the edge and I am lost in candy-filled thoughts...

I confess...I am obsessed with trick or treating and thoughts of the candy pouring in next Saturday...Thankfully I have kids to legitimize my incessant ringing of doorbells and I live in a town where it is big to do.

When I was little my sister Vickey was the Queen of Halloween and must have felt much the same as I do now...16 years older than me, she dragged me house to house for hours and then we hauled our loot home to weigh it on the scale.

I wish I could remember a pound count, but I can't; it's lost in a haze of childhood memories so thick I can brush them away with my hand and confused in the tussle of candy wrappers and sticky chocolate hands. And I suppose, Vickey, this is all your fault!

Annie, Michelle...I still haven't grown up...Bellerose at Halloween was heaven, and perhaps Warwick just might be the same for my little ones.

As ever, I will be sure to blog about Halloween in Warwick after the merry night has come and gone...in the meantime I will be pining for the sea of Hershey's miniatures, Mary Janes, Tootsie Rolls, and those cute little square Snickers sure to roll in...

My little one would give her eyeteeth to participate in a Warwick style Halloween! (Frankly, she could ACTUALLY give them, since they are in a jar somewhere around here...)

It is so sad when she's cursed with a mom who suffers from HalloScrooge-itis. Which really hasn't changed from Bellerose days... Well, candy notwithstanding ;) Oh, and save me the Special Dark bars!
