Treats or Tricks
By Mary L. Bushong
  

1     Alissa and her younger brother David barged through the front door of their house and stampeded to the back bedroom where Mom was getting Josh up from his nap.
 
2     "Mom!" the brother and sister chorused together.
 
3     "We're in here!" Mom called as she cuddled a sleepy baby against her shoulder. She looked up at the breathless girl and boy who bounded into the doorway.
 
4     "We have decided what we want to dress up as for Halloween," said Alissa. "I am going as an Indian girl and David is..."
 
5     "I'm going as a ghost!" broke in David, as he glared at his sister.
 
6     "Those sound like good choices," said Mom. "I know what Josh is going as, too. He's going as a pumpkin!"
 
7     Alissa and David laughed.
 
8     "We will be a very funny looking group!" said Alissa.
