For some reason, the media has not really reported much about the epic snowstorm that hit the northeast last weekend. Because of the inclement weather, many east coast kids did not get to go trick-or-treating, Kate’s kids included.
Kate lives outside of Philadelphia and thankfully has power after the storm, but those of us who live in Connecticut have been in the dark for almost a week.
Gosselin’s older two girls, Mady and Cara, did manage to engage in some Halloween fun, so Kate came up with a creative way to make sure that her sextuplets were included and still had some candy in lieu of actually going trick-or-treating.
Kate ran to the store and stocked up on bags of candy, and then her daughter Mady helped her to hide the treats in the basement so that the little kids could “trick-or-treat” down there after dinner. After they had hunted down all of the candy hidden in the house, the children set up a makeshift “candy sale,” where they traded their favorite treats amongst their siblings.
All of the parents in my neighborhood are trying to figure out how we can make it up to our kids who did not get to go trick-or-treating once the power finally comes back on. I will definitely be passing on Kate’s cute idea, and possibly doing something similar for my own son!
