We Did It Again...

Yep, run out of candy again at 730pm...just like last year. You'd think 4 jumbo bags of stuff should be sufficient...Apparently our neighborhood had been discovered...and I always hand out the good stuff, none of this lollipop and suckers thing, I go for KitKats, Reese's', Twix et al., to the great delight of all trick-n-treaters.
So after The Husband placed the Halloween lamps strategically up front and we lighted the candles as well, we finished our dinner and settled in for a night of rather frequently interrupted computer gaming, because what is more appropriate for Halloween night than killing the undead on the screen with a well-placed strike of a paladin's holy sword, right? :-)
Well, it was lovely. Our street was filled with giggling groups of kids escorted by parents and older brothers/sisters, our doorbell rang every five minutes, and The Husband was glad he gave up the idea of dressing up with axe and green face paint as the Halloween Goblin because there were just way too many 3-4 years olds in absolutely adorable costumes who'd have had guaranteed nightmares from that. So he run to the store instead when our stock of candy got depleted, earning Good Husband points (tm) and more kids thanking us appreciatively. Later, JG stopped by with her AMAZING mask that she made--hopefully she'll put up some pictures at her blog, because that stuff was on par with some of the fancier stuff I've seen at the carnival photos of my friends from Venice, really. (Sidebar-before I die, I want to go there and dance in full costume at the Piazza San Marco...preferable wearing a mask JG made). :-)

We have about half a bag left that will see us through Christmas candy-wise I think. Yay!

Our street *did* get discovered this Halloween, ja? :-) Ran out of candy, too, and both JG *and* the Marmot had to make separate candy resupply runs while me and the Hubby did baby duty and give-out-candy duty...
