I was at the twins house and we had about 100 or so maybe. They come in big groups.........

Summering had on her witches hat with attached braids that flipped upwards and a bow!!!

There was dry ice machine outside with various spooky things........Fun

My boonie area gets no one. I always head out of town to hand out candy. Then also, I don't bring

any candy home!!!

We'll bus down there next year too, if the kids get candy and the parents get Coronas.

We had about 20-25 kids here in Westside. Bummed I didn't get to go out trick-or-treating myself with my toddler, who crashed at 5:30 after a very busy Halloween day.

Sign me up for that bus trip too!

Only about 25-30 kids here in Jefferson Heights. I'm used to going through 5 or 6 bags of candy when we were in Danville. There we had foot traffic and the "riders" who, I think, made it a goal to go everywhere in town to get candy without dressing in costume (maybe a mask, but everyday clothes!!)

Everyone was in costume here and, I must say, they were very well-mannered!! Lots of "pleases" and "thank yous" said at my door!!

Now...what to do with all this leftover candy?? Well, everyone has to have a goal, so...

oink oink!!

All the kids last night were in costumes & well mannered also, EXCEPT for the last bunch...they were about 7 or 8 y/o & ran up, took handfuls of candy & ran back down the driveway w/o a "trick or treat", a "hello" or a "thank you"!!

Their parents were in the street at the base of our driveway, so I couldn't resist yelling out "YOU'RE WELCOME" at the top of my lungs so they could see how "wonderfully" they've raised their kids!!!

Paul and JG...LMAO!!!

As for Halloween...we didn't have ONE kid...not ONE!!! I'm really bummed. I know our homes are really spread apart on my street, but there are several kids on our street and we figured we would at *least* get them, but nothing! Now I'm left with a ton of candy :::tears open a kit kat:::::. Sighh...
