James won't be here and we don't know anyone who has a Halloween party, so no party for me. We live pretty much in the country and have never had kids come, so I won't be buying candy. Our church has a little carnival and I might go help with that (of course I'll have to participate in the cake-walk a few times!). The purpose of the carnival is to keep the kids off the streets, trick-or-treating, but a lot of the kids come to the carnival then go trick-or-treating. Halloween was a big deal for us and our friends growing up in San Diego and Vista (North San Diego County).

That's rotten for you Barbara! We don't have trick-or-treaters either in my little pocket neighborhood so we usually go to the Zoo Boo or Fiesta Texas. Even Sea World has a Halloween bash. Like in your area, the zoo thing is to keep younger kids off the streets. My youngest loves it! This year I think we'll go to Fiesta on Halloween night because the older kids will be here and it's not too scary for the 5 year old anymore. There's also a great haunted house nearby that's open the whole month of October and a haunted hayride on the outskirts of town that we love. October is my favorite month.

We're not doing anything here. Anytime we plan a party nobody ever shows up.
I'll just take Billy out for trick-or-treating.

What do ya'll think about having a virtual Halloween party here the day after Halloween, which would be Thursday, Nov. 1? (Or it could be the day before or whenever.) We could post pictures of costumes or our Jack-O-Lanterns or our spooky decorations or our yummy Halloween treats. Also, we could post our favorite creepy ghost stories. It wouldn't have to be pics of this year - it could be any of our fav Halloween pics. Maybe this is goofy so if no one is interested, I won't be put out. lol

No party here. Buck and I will be handing out candy on our front porch, weather permitting. The last couple of years it's been warm enough to do that as long as we wore long-sleeved shirts or a light jacket.

We usually have a pretty good turnout for trick-or-treaters. We live in town and our street is in transition from older folks with no children to young families with 2 or 3 children, so life's picking up here.

I have to remember to buy plenty of goodies. One year we ran out and ended up scrounging for pennies an anything else we could find in the house. I'm considering ordering from Oriental Trading Company instead of "sugaring up" the neighborhood children.
