for years we lived in the country and pretty quickly i learned not to buy any candy or at least none to give out. we had no sidewalks and even though our road was a little over a mile long there were only a handful of houses. not exactly trick treating territory.
now we live in town and i picked up a bit over 20 bucks(!) worth of candy - about 250 pieces. i figured we'd have a little left over to treat ourselves. um... no. does anyone else get tons of trick or treaters? is this just the norm? or am i now in halloween hell having to make up for all those years of not having my door bell ring every 3 minutes?
i realize i am sounding like a halloween grinch and i don't mean to. it was actually a lot of fun. the little ones are just adorable in their princess and pirate costumes. one mother came to the door with her 7 month old baby in her arms. the baby's round cheeks had whiskers painted on them - so sweet. mom took a few milky way bars. i figured she deserved them.
i hope it was a happy halloween for you all!
