My fun Halloween 2010
On Halloween morning I woke up and got out of bed. Then I ran down the stairs and went into my grandma's room saying "Happy Halloween!" to her. I saw the candy and I knew I wasn't supposed to eat it until later. We couldn't find the candy bowls to put the bags of candy in so we had to put it in a basket. I started to get a piece of paper and pencil to count how many kids came to the house. I put on my astronaut costume. No kids came to the house until at least 2 PM because it was on a Sunday. It was a nice sunny day that day, perfect weather to go trick-or-treating. A few kids came after that but then we didn't get any more kids. I knew they would not come because they were busy giving out the candy. I didn't get upset because I knew that someone would come soon and if they saw me upset or taking my costume off like last year, they would be sad. About an hour later more kids came and we were still counting kids. Dad asked if I wanted to go trick-or-treating yet but I didn't want to go yet because I thought it was a little early to go. Then dad said if I go later, then it would be too dark and they will run out of candy. So we went trick-or-treating. Dad took the video and we got to the first house. I said the magic words, you know what they are "trick-or-treat". I took some candy but not a lot. Then we went to some more houses down the block. We went around the block but I wasn't ready to go home yet because I didn't have enough candy. But dad said like always "you never have enough" but really I do. I understand what my parents are trying to tell me. Yeah, yeah just always "don't get too much candy blah blah blah and all that other stuff". I decided to go to my own house just for fun. We continued going trick-or-treating and I was getting a good amount of candy and going to a good amount of houses. On one of the houses I met one of my old teachers. She said feeling surprised "hi Matt, I miss you, how are you". I was surprised too and I was a little scared. On one of the houses I thought of a joke as of my astronaut costume "I guess I just landed on planet candy". Dad told me that my joke was really funny. He said "good one Matty". It sure was a good one since it was Halloween. Soon I was getting enough candy and I was ready to go home. We went home but at one of the neighbors' houses, there was a dog barking at me. I got a little scared. The man gave me some candy and we went home. When we got home, grandma told me that there were 4 kids that came while we were gone. I showed grandma my bag and she told me that she saw someone that looked like me. I told her that it was me. Grandma was so surprised. Then dad told me that we were going to the office to fax some copies of my dad's work. Then we went to the House of Spain (a restaurant where one of my dad's friends work) to do the bank thing. Then we went to my dad's other friend's house to get more candy. After that, we went to get pizza. Then we went home. When we got home, I asked grandma how many kids came while we were gone again. Grandma said that 2 kids came while we left again. Then I found out that 32 kids came this year on Halloween. Last year 51 kids came. Can you believe that? Then I went up to bed and dreamed of being a pumpkin. I had a very fun Halloween this year! I hope next year will be even more fun.
