How many for you?:ghost:

Tonight we went to SILs neighborhood (she moved a couple of months ago.) Nearly every house had their lights on and each house was giving plenty of candy. It is outside of town far enough that there aren't a huge number of kids--too far to walk from town or the school. Most of the houses tend to hand out treat bags instead of just a piece or two like they do in town where they might have 50 or 100 kids. Just guessing by the people I saw walking around the neighborhood, each house probably had between 15 and 20 kids. SIL had 8, but she walked around with us for a while before she turned her light on.

We had the neighbours from #1 in afterwards (our 3 kids go around together) and I cooked chicken nuggets and chips for the kids (so they'd have something less "mucky" to eat than just candy) and chicken curry (from a jar of sauce) for the grown ups. We had all only arrived home in late afternoon from weekends away and dinner hadn't really been thought about in either house.

Way up this year.

SIL called she ran out of candies too, she ended up giving granola bars and small bags of cookies after she ran out of candy. She had to close the lights too.

Lots of spidermen, batman & superman for the boys. Witches & princesses for the girls. Dniece was the only Indian I saw.

i only had 1 this year. i think alot went to the church. i have alot of candy to eat. yummy!!!!!!

AND.... I put Halloween decorations outside.... during the month of October. PLUS.... we have a wonderful "street party" from 3:00 to 6:00... so the kids are already in their costumes.... and outside with their parents.... ready to start trick-or-treating!!!!

We live in a newer community, two years ago, I had bought enough candy for about 100 kids (the norm in our old neighbourhood) we had 10 tricker or treaters, last year I bought the same amount since the neighbourhood had more than doubled over the year and I got 30. So this year, I bought enough candy for about 60 trick or treaters and we ended up having over 100!!!

It was nice to see all those kids running around having a great time.

We had 5 here in 3 groups. Last year it surged up to 8 so we are down in numbers. No one had any really cute outfits. All were in cars who were just stopping at houses that had porch lights on.

We took DS2 to 4 homes to see our neighbors very early (about 5:45) - he was more interested in petting their dogs than treats and he and I were home to answer the door by 6. DS6 and DH continued on to about 8 more houses and came back with a TON of candy...people were basically giving out handfuls in anticipation of a slow night.

We usually have about 150 kids. Last year…. less than half that many.

We live in the northern most corner of the city and are surrounded by construction, so not sure if anyone will bother coming this way.

Our neighborhood doesn't seem to have many kids, but I will have lots of candy - just in case.
