The REAL Way To Trick-Or-Treat

We took the kids to the church Friday night for the neighborhood "trunk-or-treat". My brother-in-law Matt and I continued my favorite tradition of Halloween: we have a little flashlight that makes noises. With the older kids, Matt would tell them “Say something into the microphone.” They were so distracted with that dumb little flashlight that I could reach my hand into their bag and retrieve a huge handful of candy and they wouldn’t even know it. I'm not exaggerating. An entire pile of sugar could be removed from their bag as they stared blankly at the flashlight.

I took a pillow case just for the candy we collected, and I got more in my bag than my kids got in theirs. We were mindful to make sure we were only taking candy from older kids who shouldn't have been trick-or-treating in the first place.

A word to the wise 16 year olds for future Halloweens: You will leave my house with less candy than when you got there.

You don't know me, but I found your music site from LDSmusicians group on yahoo. I just want to tell you, you are an amazing pianist. I really enjoy your music. I am pretty much a self taught soprano vocalist. I wish you could come accompany me or my choir sometime that would be so awesome. Congrats on all of your success, I can hope for that someday.

SOrry to invade your private blog. You a great blog too.
Hugs from Georgia,
