Trick or Treat!

I love trick or treat. :)

Last year I heard the tiniest knock at the door, so I opened it to see a little devil standing about 2 foot tall, with an even smaller ghost behind him. After some prompting from Mum, the little devil ventured 'Trick or treat?'
I praised his outfit and offered him the bowl full of treats. A mini-sized hand with little pudgy fingers stretched tentatively out and selected a bar of chocolate. The ghost was busy swinging on my gate and seemed quite oblivious to anything else, so I said 'Would you like to take one for your little brother?' Again the hand came forward. Then Mum said 'Are you going to say thank you to the lady?'

It was then that the little fella uttered the immortal words, 'Thank you My Lady'. Both me and Mum had to contain our laughter. It was the cutest thing in the whole wide world.

I wonder what this year will bring. Here's our stash.
