How was the kiddie traffic in your neighborhood? My wife says that we got a decent amount of Kiddos (I'm in CA on business) in Westcreek, but less than she expected.

Same in Wildhorse. We suspect the DST switch from the last weekend in October to the first in November threw people off. Folks got started late and ended early when they realized that the kids had to get in bed for school in the morning. I think it thinned out the crowd.

But my Geico caveman costume was a big hit!

That is awesome! I especially like the yellow sweater.

I'm in law school, so all of our costumes were the epitome of law geekiness. We went to a bar and people just looked at us oddly, because normal people don't dress up as famous cases, our most terrifying professors and random legal concepts. But we cracked ourselves up, and that's what counts!

I can't believe not a single kid knocked on my door. I'll have to share the Snickers, Butterfingers, and Crunch Bars with y'all.

BUTTERFINGERS!!!!!!! I'll have a costume and be there in 5 minutes. Leave a light on. I bought candy that I would not have minded left overs. I don't have any leftovers. There's always the 50% sales tomorrow.

We had a moderate turnout here in AR. Our neighborhood is so new that I wasn't sure if we would have any. My wife and I had fun handing out candy to all of the kiddies!

I thought we were going to have a bigger turnout. I think our automatic porch light may have had something to do with it--motion-sensored. So if it was more than a few minutes between kids they just skipped us. Last year my son and DH were out there the whole evening "greeting" (read:scaring the crap out of) all the little kiddos, but this year my son opted to go and get his own loot. So now in addition to the huge bowl of Snickers/Butterfinger/Skittles mix left over, we have half of a Target shopping bag full. Not the plastic bag, the paper old-fashioned shopping bag with handles!! Now if I could just find the glue..........I'd go ahead and just adhere all that candy to my hips, thighs, and butt and save myself the trouble of eating it.

We had a record low turn out. One trick or treater. The Catholic Church/School up the street has a Halloween Carnival so I think most of the parents have been just taking their kids up there. If I still had small children that's what I would do. It's much easier and more fun for the kids. My niece and nefew came over and they couldn't wait to get through trick or treating so they could go to the carnival.

We had a really good turnout....ran out of candy too!!! Now that my children are older, I really enjoy seeing all the cute little ones all dressed up......I don't have to get the make up off them, try and get them to bed with the sugar high, and talk them out of wearing their costume to bed!!!! Just turn the light off:-)
