Yesterday we were surprised (and thrilled, actually!) to discover a bucket of Hallowe'en treats on our door step when we arrived home. The bucket looked like a jack o'lantern, but it was wearing a black cat mask. There was a note attached that read:
Am I a jack or a cat that has come to say "boo!"
All dressed up with treats for you?
Please fill me up with treats galore,
Then take me to your friend's front door.
Sit me down, then push the bell.
Run real quick so no one can tell!
As I move from friend to friend
Good Hallowe'en wishes never end.
Pretty cool, huh? We have no idea who it's from, although Amanda has confessed to having given our address to somebody (she refuses to say whom!) I bet a pumpkin spice latte will get her talking...
The boys had so much fun going through the goodies, and we are excited to be passing the bucket on to an unsuspecting friend in the next few days, all filled up with treats we've picked out and crafts we've made. So much fun! If you're reading this, dear "Boo-er"... thank you! And Happy Hallowe'en!
Boo update: Mystery solved!!! Merci, Erin and Eden!
