TONIGHT is the NIGHT to SPOOK!!!

To SPOOK or go BOO someone that is. For those of you who might not be familiar with this practice - here's the low-down. You wait til dark, then pick a neighbor to ding-dong-ditch - BUT you leave behind some Halloween Treats and Trinkets. The person that got BOO'ed then puts a sign in their window or on their door indicating they've been BOO'ed (which the Spooker provides - I made several BOO TAGS and included them in the box) and then refills the box with their choice of Treats (or TRICKS!!) and passes it on anonymously to another neighbor.

My kids love doing this each year. I have started making a BOO Box each year to pass along. I usually stick to the same format and just change up the decor a little. We try to keep it anonymous. The kids love trying to guess who got who. We just need to help Isabelle, my youngest daughter, keep her mouth zipped!! Today at school she already told several neighborhood children we were going to BOO them!!
