Halloween just isn't quite the same for parents when they become empty-nesters.
Gone is the drama and tribulation of acquiring (or making!) costumes. The debate about how many houses may be visited. Excited conversation about how many pieces of candy may be consumed before bedtime. The sugar-influenced "crashes."
Ah, I miss those days. But really, it is fun nonetheless.
Our Halloween highlight was the arrival of some young visitors, children of a friend and colleague, pay us a visit Halloween night. (Because they are in costume, we won't identify them.)
We even received a performance for our donation of candy!
