Will you be taking your 2/3 year old trick-or-treating this year?  If so, will it be the traditional door-to-door type or will you participate in a trunk-or-treat (or something similar)?

We have a decent sized neighborhood that has a decent amount of kids, but hardly anyone gives out candy and its discouraging at times!  But I don't want to have to go to another neighborhood, and we live outside of town, which means we'd have to into town to find a neighborhood to Trick or treat at, which I feel weird about doing.  So the little ones and I will go around our neighborhood, hit the dozen houses out of 3-4 dozen houses that are there and be done with it.  It ends up being the perfect amount for them as it is, just get scrooge-ish about it some years.

Wow! I'm surprised that with so many kids in the neighborhood, not many hand out candy (and FWIW, I'd probably feel weird going to another neighborhood too)! Although, you are right about it probably being the right amount for this age. We'll take the boys out this year too, just around the neighborhood. Last year Landon only lasted about two short blocks and then he was done!
