I can’t believe it is Halloween again. It seems as if we just celebrated it yesterday; or rather could not celebrate because we were moving. Can you believe that? We could not get a mover in the second half of October in 2010, except for October 31st, because no one wants to move that day. We, however, had no other choice; we had to get out of the apartment, so we got punished by not ordering them early enough.
This was the first time since we live in the States that we could not enjoy seeing all these cute kids wearing their favorite costumes, or seeing their excitement for the fun. Unfortunately, this year will be a repeat of 2010. We are not moving but we are not home either, so we will not be able to treat them.
From time-to-time I like to reminiscence about the “good old days”, when on October 30th our oven was working over time; preparing various baked “goodies” for the kids. You see those days we did not think that home-baked pastries can create problems. I guess you can say that we were naïve; nevertheless I still remember the fun we had in creating all these colorful decorations on cookies, cupcakes and chocolate confections.
Since we lived for many years in the same locations we were known as the baking ladies (my daughter and I) and kids were ringing our doorbell multiple times. They were sure we do not remember that they already picked up their sweets.
