I'm hiding from the trick or treaters. We haven't had any for the past few years, so I didn't think to get in any candy. So far the doorbell has rung three times.

Happy Halloween to all!!

Enjoying the trick or treaters, we have had about 20 thus far but it's still early. Letting the daughter & dh hand out the candy, I will be less tempted to eat it. It's fun to see all of their costumes.

Handing out candy here too. Our subdivision has had a recent influx of families with kids in the last couple years. I think we had about 20 T or Ts so far, after many years of having 2-5. Most came early, so I think we're done now. And it's Survivor night!

Note to self: bring the mummy back inside.

I always have the same four trick or treaters. They are so cute! Ages 7, 6, and twins are 3. They are the neighbors-live at the end of the street. We knew the mom when she was a little girl.
But, that is all we get. :(

We got twin Tinker Bells, about 3yo, adorable! Our oldest T or T was a throat-slit nun, bleeding down the habit, sick but funny! He was taking his siblings around, with his mom.

We live in a condo complex and see a lot of kids. Families drive in from some of the less desirable areas of the adjacent town so their kids can T or T safely. We ran through two hundred pieces of candy before the night was over and had to shut down.

Our grandson comes every year to T or T in our neighborhood. He made a good haul tonight.

Turned the lights off as we never get any TorT's...of course someone knocked on the door. We just didn't answer. No candy here. I had fun at work though...the pre-school across the street always comes over in the morning and then two classes of 10 year olds. After 5 PM the facility employees bring their kids in for TorT in the hallways, the residents love it. Then a big party in the main dining room for residents and staff with their kids. Fun times.

I have seen kids trick or treating at malls. Do they do that other places?
