Happy Halloween

The year I moved into this neighborhood, I invited to a baby shower for a woman on the next street a few days after Halloween.  Since the neighborhood was new construction, we all moved in at approximately the same time and were "new neighbors."  

I thought that a baby shower was a perfect way for us to get to know each other.  I remember talking to some of the women that night and saying that I had really "screwed up" on Halloween.  They seemed confused and asked "What does that mean?" 

I exclaimed, "I forgot to hold back any Mounds!"  

The next day, my doorbell rang and my neighbor Mona was standing there with a small Ziploc bag full of Mounds.  I have loved living here ever since.

Wishing you a Happy Halloween!
