As we rushed out the door this morning to try and make it to dance class on time, my youngest yelled out in almost hysterical excitement. “We’ve been Boo’d!”
This fabulous little package was sitting outside our doorstep in the frost, just full of treats and a sweet little note of explanation.
The phantom ghost has come to town
To leave some goodies that you’ve now found
If you do not wish a curse to fall
Continue this greeting, the “Phantom” call.
And leave it there until Halloween.
This will scare away other Phantoms in town
And make sure other Phantom goodies are spread all around.
Second, make two treats, two Phantoms, and two notes like this-
Think of your neighbours who may have been missed.
You have only one day to act, so be quick!
Leave your treat at two doors where the Phantom hasn’t hit.
Deliver when your neighbour is out of sight-
Let no one suspect you, try as they might.
Be quick, be quiet and be sure not to be seen!
Come share in the fun of a a great Halloween.
So now it was our turn. We get to Boo the neighbours! After much discussion about who our neighbour would be, I dove into my stash of goodies courtesy of the Hallmark Press Pause Panel.
We grabbed some candy from inside my “Hocus Pocus Treat Presenter” (love this creepy little box that dares you to take candy when you open it), added some toys from the dollar store, and topped things of with a couple of adorable Halloween cards. How did I not think of giving Halloween cards before? They are some of the cutest I’ve ever seen.
With our “boo” kit complete we were ready to slink off into the night to do our dirty work. This is much more fun then you can ever imagine. (of course as I sometimes do, I may have taken things a wee bit to far) The girls and I decided to dress head to toe in black. We got our criminal on. Drove to our victims house, and parked just down the street. I turned the SUV off and sent my children…giggling, into the dark night. They tiptoed up to the marks door, hands clamped over their mouths to try and stay quiet, dropped their package, rang the door bell and ran like hell. Well as fast as two little people laughing like crazy and tripping in the dark can run.
Operation Boo. A great success.
