Tipsy Tuesday (#286)

Most of us know how to keep kids safe while out and about on Halloween...

Tip #286

but do you put any thought into keeping your house safe for others that may visit you?
  • To keep homes safe for visiting trick-or-treaters, remove from the porch and front yard anything a child could trip over such as garden hoses, toys, bikes and lawn decorations. 
  • Check outdoor lights and replace burned-out bulbs.
  • Wet leaves or snow should be swept from sidewalks and steps.
  • Restrain pets so they do not inadvertently jump on or bite a trick-or-treater.
Now for fun, what was your all time favorite Halloween costume?

My first year living on my own, I was so excited for trick-or-treaters and decorated my front stoop. Kids tripped over my jack-o-lanterns all night. I learned to put them down on the ground out of the way after that!

My fave costume was probably the year I went as a pumpkin. Homemade costume stuffed with newspapers. Took forever to get ready, but man, was I cute. ;)
