I am concerned that we won't have so many Trick or Treaters today because it is unseasonably cold here in Wilmette. We will be ready though, in the Halloween trick or treating hours. We bought candy as well as salty snacks to give away. Some children don't like candy or know their parents will take it away when they return home, so they are really happy to have a choice. Last year we bought some small presents also, but we found that food treats were the most popular. The best seller, ever, was little bags of Jay's plain popcorn. The children loved that! We would have bought popcorn, but unfortunately, we haven't been able to find that anywhere this year. We have some work to do to be all ready, so we will have a busy early afternoon!
