If it weren't for the blogs I read, Halloween would probably have passed me by. With all the talk and lovely inspiraton for Halloween celebrations we've decided to join in. The boys are very excited. Last night I had a play around with some pumpkins. Tonight we will be ready to go. We have a bowl of treats ready to hand out and we will have some orange balloons on our gate to let neighbours know that we are receiving ghouls and witches.
Halloween is not big in Australia so it's slim pickings for those children who want to go trick or treating. In our little corner of Melbourne those houses taking part mark their gate post with a Halloween decoration to draw the children.
Our middle son has a sugar intolerance so any treats he collects will quickly be confiscated - poor Tom. So I think the giving out of treats at our door will be the fun part for the boys.
