We're guessing about 60 here.
The little buggers roam the streets in packs and that makes it hard to keep count.

Had one cute little Imperial Storm Trooper come back a second time, with a confused look...
He made out pretty good!
Got enough sugar he is probably bouncing off the ceiling as we speak.

Would you believe our doorbell rang at 11:35 last night and even though we turned out the lights, hubby answered and there were 2 kids, around 8 and 10 and mom in the car waiting....what the #%$#?

We had the same damn thing. Sorry for the language but I live in Fuquay and some of those kids were SSSOOOOOO rude. I had a few tell me that they didn't like that kind and reached into my bowl to get a different kind. After that we turned out the light. What is wrong with parents they don't teach there kids any manners.

A whopping total of 2 kids at my place. Townhome community - very few children live here. I found it kind of sad. I miss all the hullaballoo!

Halloween was great in our neighborhood. We live in Sunset Ridge in Holly Springs. We are in the middle of the street so everyone stopped by our house. We had a rush of like 30 kids in a 5 min span. I was just tossing candy as fast as I could. Also, everyone was just sitting on their front porches watching the kids walk by. One house set up a big table in the front yard and a bunch of neighbors brought candy over to put on the table. So while all the adults chatted on the front porch, kids were able to come up and get candy from about 10 different houses in less than a minute. Oh and we took our dogs for a walk for about 15 minutes and I was pleasanty surprised to see that our candy bowls were still pretty full when we got back.

We never have had so much fun on a Halloween. Trick or treat began around 6 and we were done by 7:45! About 45 kids came to our house. It was wonderful!

They must have bussed them in from other neighborhoods. We had no less then 200 kidos come by. I went through 7 Costco bags of candy! Of course I was giving each kid a prettu big handful. But still, we don't have that many kids in our neighborhood. We also had some early 20 somethings. Come on now! I even asked one of them, "aren't you a little old?" He replied, "never too old for free candy." lol.

We ran out of candy and closed our door and turned off the lights and they still kept coming.
