When I was little I couldn’t wait to grow up so I could pass out candy on Halloween to all the little kids. Finally when the time came I had a big old yellow Tupperware bowl loaded with the best candy and I stood ready at the door of my trailer. I was so excited I could hardly contain myself.
I peeked out the window and saw a little girl around the age of two dressed in an adorable clown costume and carrying a plastic pumpkin to put her candy in. She was so little her mom was holding her hand to help her walk. I hollered, “She is so cute!” The mom said, “Thanks, this is the first time she’s ever gone Trick or Treating.” Perfect I thought, this is my first time handing out candy, it was meant to be!
She climbed up the three steps to my trailer door alone, her mother waited at the bottom. I went back inside to get the candy, I was so
excited I flung the door open too quickly and knocked her all the way down the steps, landing at her mother’s feet. She was screaming and crying uncontrollably as the mother tried to comfort her. I felt awful! I went to the bottom of the steps and dumped the majority of my candy into the crying clowns bucket, filling it up and then watched as the mother carried her back home. I then turned off the light so no more kids would get hurt. It was saddest Halloween ever.
I often wonder if that little girl still remembers that night because I sure do.
I made one of these cheese balls for a Halloween party my husband had at work. It looked disgusting but it was delicious and was a big hit.
2 Packages Cream Cheese
1 Package Bacon Bits
1 Envelope Ranch Dressing mix
Pastrami or ham
Take a plastic Halloween mask and cover with saran wrap. Mix all ingredients together and press into the mask. Refrigerate for two hours. Take out of mask and begin placing strips of pastrami or ham over the face to look like flaking skin. Use oives for eyes. I used plastic vampire teeth for the mouth.
My husband needed a costume for his Halloween party too so I picked one out for him. I thought he would do best with something simple he
could just slip over his clothes. I chose a banana because I thought it would be funny and as you can see from the man in the picture it is quite funny. Turns out it was way funnier than I thought it would be.
The costume was made for an average sized man but my husband is
tall, 6’5” so let’s just say the portion of the banana that sticks out was in an inconvenient place. He had to take off the costume off after a short time bccause people were laughing so hard he thought they might fall out of their chairs. He also feared someone might be offended by it. Can you imagine doing the write up for someone who felt "uncomfortable" in the workplace due to the manager's banana costume?! Too funny!
I’ll try to get him to put it back on again and I’ll take a picture so you can see it.
