Happy Halloweensie!

Here's my entry for Susanna Hill's Sixth Annual Halloweensie Writing Contest...

A Busy Week

Sweetsie Spider and Grateful Ghost gazed out the attic window at the moon.

"Remember when Trick-or-Treaters visited us on Halloween night?" asked Sweetsie.

"Nobody comes to our neighborhood anymore," replied Grateful, "We could fix that. Here's my idea!"

On Monday, they raked leaves.

Tuesday, they washed windows.

Wednesday, they swept the porch.

Thursday, they made cinnamon donuts.

Friday, they carved pumpkins.

Saturday, they made treat bags.

Sunday, they heated apple cider.

On Halloween night, some sweet first-graders noticed Sweetsie's brightly lit home. "We've never stopped here before," said Colton. The friends filled their buckets with fun treats.

Sweetsie and Grateful smiled, thankful for another Happy Halloween.

What a sweet story, Suzanne! All yours? Or did you get a little help from those first-graders? :) Love how Sweetsie and Grateful applied themselves to fixing and tidying and making their house inviting, how you worked in the days of the week and the chores, and how their hard work paid off in trick-or-treat visitors! Nicely done! Thanks so much for joining in the Halloweensie fun again! (Oh, and cinnamon donuts? I'll be right over... :) )

Lovely how Sweetsie Spider and Grateful Ghost were able to entice the trick-or-treaters to return to their house for Halloween!
