What costume did you see more yesterday? Did your college students dress up? Did you sample your candy for quality before or during the night? ;) What time did you have your last trick or treater? The hit costume here seemed to be batman related. Even saw a batgirl with yellow heels! My boys went as a frankenstein and capt hook. I live down a long pine needle driveway with oaks and Spanish moss so we don't get trick or treaters. Our neighborhood has a hay ride so I took our snickers to give out there. I had rice krispy treats I made at home if anyone showed up at our door for my husband to give out. No one came.

No candy here. I decided to not pass it out this year. We get literally hundreds of kids here, they arrive by the carload, and the doorbell rings constantly from 5:30-8:30pm. So I decided to turn off the lights this year for a break. I could hear lots of voices on the street but it was nice and peaceful inside the house!

Due to dh being at MBA class (5:30-9:30 on Wednesday nights, and no, they didn't reschedule) and me being laid up, I chose to just watch the Halloween movies on AMC.  So yes, I have ALL the candy left, but then we're usually lucky to get a dozen kids.  It felt very weird to be alone Halloween night...

We have quite a bit left. I over bought!  Of course, dh has managed to eat most of the chocolate leftovers.  He said the rest of the stuff I bought is yucky, but I like it!  I'll send about 3/4 of it with dd to pass out in her classroom.

I didn't buy the candy until the day before, so no sampling.  We did get quite a few kids--I really enjoy seeing the little ones dressed up, like the little princesses.  There were a few funny costumes--like 2 kids came together & one was a banana and the other was some other fruit.  Then there was the kid dressed like peas in a pod, which was long & made it a little hard to get up the stairs.  I did notice there were very few older kids this year.  and we didn't have much candy left.  My high school kid had his friend come over to watch a scary movie.
