Treat. Definitely Treat.

Whooo-boy, we had a ton of little people visiting last night! My neighbors the Lizard Queen and her hubby, The Marmot and JanusGate spent the evening at our place, and even with our unified candy ammo (which was considerable, let me tell you) the LQ had to make an emergency run for more candy, because they just kept coming...As opposed to last year, when I got stuck with three bags of primo chocolate I was forced to eat...(sigh)
I think the porch decoration and the little lamps The Husband wove into the peach tree on the corner made all the difference. Or our neighborhood just had a large influx of young families moved in, I am not sure. But we had them ringing the bell until about 2130. And most of them wore costumes !
And here's what I noticed: there were these groups of about 8 kids age ranging from 4 to 10, accompanied by 2 teenagers of about 15-17, who were acting so totally responsible and neat, it was a joy to see. "Come around here, John, you already go your candy, let Lisa get herss." "Say Happy Halloween..." "Zip that jacket up, it is chilly." Wonderful!

All in all, it's a pity The Husband missed the evening (he was teaching). We had such fun!

Finally...someone who had tons of little ones!! I miss the days when the whole neighborhood was out in the streets gathering treats and visiting with all the other people on the block.

Though we weren't home this year, we were celebrating our new home, there weren't any little ones out in our new neighborhood either. What a pity! :-(

Glad you had fun!

You should have seen the one in the little red suit with the stubby black wings flopping behind him as his dad carried him on his arm...or the adorable pumkinhead with her orange jumper with Boo!ghosts all over it...Yay!

Oh too cute!!! Hopefully next year there will be more residents in our little neighborhood so we will see some ghosties too.
