I told the boys after they did their trick or treating, they could pick out 5 candies to eat and then if they wanted, they could leave their candy on the doorstep for the Great Pumpkin who would leave them a present.
Oster was very skeptical, but he did it. Since the Great Pumpkin didn't plan ahead, he left them money instead with a note. And ironically enough, our neighborhood real estate agent also left a note with a cute little scarecrow on our front door, so when Oster found the letter from the Great Pumpkin, he also discovered this gift from our neighbor.
He said, "Mom, the great pumpkin didn't come, it was a witch".
