Its our first Halloween here, Jordan dressed up like a Werewolf and went trick or treating with his friends, whilst I was standing from afar to watch. Not may opened their doors, some did and he got some sweets, some money and a coke, he was well pleased that he's got his sweets. I thought it would be really big here as they are very Americanised here. It's a shame for the kids from the UK who have been used to it, perhaps next year I will throw a party instead.
We went out trick or treating, had about 10 kids all together, split into two groups, all seemed fine, came back with loads of sweets and some cash( Which i took for safe keeping you understand) My daughters best friend had never done it before , she enjoyed dressing up as a witch, the folks of Port Willunga were more than happy to hand over their hard earned chocolate!
Simon( Still trying to remove the green facepaint).
Glad to see to see i'll be able to do something with Alicia next year. I was working on hallowen (and no i'm not a witch) and she was going to her dads. Bought her an outfit, took it round thinking he could maybe pop round to his brothers and maybe a couple of people he new. To cut a long story short he refused point blank and said he was not taking her on the scrounge (my fault, i should have checked first i know, just thought going to a couple of people he new and even taking sweets himself wouldn't do any harm).
I can't even explain how upset i was then having to go into work and having to leave her crying her eyes out :(. All she wanted to do was spend her last halloween in the U.K with her dad doing something nice. Better stop going on now, something special will have to be done next year i think.
