I had fun tonight.....I have a porch that wraps around two sides of my house. I put the table and chairs on the side that is by the door. Then I sat on the other side - the dark side of the porch. The kids would come up on the porch, focusing in on the candy bowl....I'd jump out behind them saying, "AAArggghhh There Matey!" (I was a pirate). Scared the crap right out of some of them. I figured that someone would get mad at me - after all, it'* probably not politically correct to actually scare someone on halloween now, but it was a lot of fun.
When I was telling my folks about it tonight...my nine year old shook his head and said, "...I never knew I had such a mean mother." LOL!!
