Are you all familiar with booing at halloween? I first saw it in South Carolina a few years ago. Someone will "boo" their neighbors by sneaking around and ringing the bell and before running away unseen, leaving behind a treat of some kind with a poem and a picture of a ghost to display outside your home (so others know that you've already been boo'd).
Well,We were boo'd last week. Twice. Totally my fault - I didn't put the ghost sign outside right away. My sneaky neighbors dropped one off during the day, in the middle of kid-chaos time, before afternoon naps. So, the package just got put aside until I could explore it later. Well, later hadn't come yet, and during dinner, our doorbell rang again, and we had been boo'd again!
So, the good sport that I am, I went ahead and got 4 packages together to deliver, and Georgia and I had big fun delivering them to our unsuspecting neighbors!

This is a picture of just one of the awesome boo gift packages that we received! The contents of both were amazing! Full of goodies like banana bread mix, cake mix, frosting, cupcake liners, halloween sprinkles, candy, light up necklace, candy necklace, cinnamon coffee and MORE!! Yum!

Here is a picture of one of the boo packages we put together. I visited the dollar spot at Target for the cute buckets - I got ghosts and pumpkins - and filled it with things like notepads, dish towels, candy, and other yummies!

Several of the teachers at school used to boo each other's classroom. The kids always thought it was so much fun. I really should do it in our neighborhood.
