Gov.Chris Gregoire as Alice, and husband Mike greet trick or treater Jack Kesler, age 2 1/2 at the Governor's Mansion.

OLYMPIA -- One thing Gov. Chris Gregoire is likely to miss when she leaves office at the end of this year is Halloween trick or treat at the Governor's Mansion.

This year, Gregoire dressed up as Alice of Wonderland fame, husband Mike was the White Rabbit and various staff were characters from Lewis Carroll's books like Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee or the Queen of Hearts.

Kids in Olympia might miss it too. She gives out the big, full-sized candy bars.
