Trick or Treat...Smell my Feet...Give me something GOOD to EAT!!! 

It was a dark and stormy night... well dark, cold and rainy, for sure!  It was TRICK OR TREATING with my little ladies!

We even got: "Mom & Dad, this is the BEST NIGHT EVER" with a "YEAH" to follow from the peanut gallery, also known as Kit Kat!

We got home, inspected our candy, whipped up some HOT COCOA (of course) and handed out one specially picked piece of good candy to each!  

Many more to follow!!! 

Sometimes it's the simple things...
