Dick Purtan & Purtan's Pumpkins!

So here it is… the big Halloween Weekend!  I know today’s a big day for parents and grandparents as they head to school to watch the little ones parade around in their costumes, then of course comes the big event - Trick or Treating on Sunday night.  In keeping with tradition, once again this year I’ll be handing out soup.  It’s been so successful in the past… the kids really seem to like it.  And as an added surprise this year I’m switching from Chicken Noodle to Chunky Beef.  (It gives the kids more protein).         

We’ve got quite a mix in our family this year - Jackie’s son Charlie is going as a magician, Jessica’s sons Preston and Jack are going as Mario and Luigi from the Super Mario Brothers Video Game, JoAnne’s kids Lauren and Adam are going as a piece of pizza and Iron Man respectively.  And in keeping with the food theme, Jill’s daughter Julia will be a Hot Dog and her brother Matt will provide dessert by going as an Ice Cream Bar.  

As for me, I’m still undecided.  I’m either going to go as Frankenstein or Monica Conyers.  Actually, I think I’ll go with Frankenstein.  After all, I don’t want to scare the kids!

AND NOW, THE DRUM ROLL PLEASE…
