smashed up Rockets... YUM! I'm closer, send 'em over in a cab.

It's a dismal year so far.... not a single kid at my door yet. I knew the kids around here were all growing up, but this is awful. I might have to move. I get the biggest kick out of the l'il gaffers all dressed up and googly eyed for treats. Even my own girl child has left the neighborhood to go and rake it in elsewhere. /sigh. Guess I'll have to wade through all this candy on me own this year.... *bigger sigh* munch munch. /sigh. munch munch. It's Rockets and mini wonderbars for supper I guess.

Oh, she's doing it all wrong. A neighborhood with few treaters tends to give it away in handfuls at each door. lol

Have you noticed that few people seem to really care at all about the costumes now though? I'm getting kids who just threw a cape over their jeans and t-shirt, and expect candy. Damn I feel like a grumpy old woman, looking at these kids and thinking 'put some damn effort in!' But then at the same time, my kids haven't gotten any comments on their homemade costumes. It seems so different from when I was a kid, and you had to basically stand for inspection at the door, explain what you were, talk about how you mom made it. *sigh* those were the good old days... 20 years seems like such a long time.

YiPPeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Had my first trick or treaters. And you're right, they got mitt fulls of candy, just in case I don't get any more! hahahaha

They were dressed up, but I've noticed it's the younger ones who really go all out. The last couple years my daughter has waited until the last minute to throw something together out of the tickle trunk downstairs.... she used to drag me to value village and we'd go the whole nine yards... I'd dress up too, even if I was just staying home to hand out candy.

Ah yep, the good ol' days.....

Yeah BUT for me, part of the good old days was feeling guilty for being selfish. Rotten old nuns.

Here kiddies. These are UNICEF boxes. They are for all of the poor starving children in the world. Anyone want to help the poor starving children in the world? All the little hands go up. Well here ya go then. One for you and one for you...

Now you take these boxes out with you and all of the good people will put their change into the box and that will ensure we feed those less fortunate than us. Won't that be woooooooonderful. Chorus: Yeeeeeeeeees sister!

Oh and one other thing, don't forget when you take the Unicef boxes out with you, you mustn't collect candy too. We'll give up candy this year and offer it up for those less fortunate, won't we?

Quietly: yes sister.

I considered eternal damnation, said screw it and left the damn box at home. Never did look back. !@#$%^&

My son is reusing last year's costume... a 'dragon suit' consisting of green pants, green shirt, green toque, with beige felt horns and red felt back scales sewn on. Fits over warmer clothes, and the toque keeps his head toasty... perfect little costume.

My daughter is a cat.... black angora toque with a pair of black ears, whiskers drawn on, black mitts, shirt, pants. We took a pair of black tights, cut the legs off to make a tail out of, cut the feet off to slip over her shoes so she's TOTALLY black, and then used the breifs part to tie the tail too so it comes out the top of her pants. A totally no sew costume, that cost me roughly 20 bucks to put together at Army and Navy... cheaper than some of the paper thin costumes that rip right away, and most of it can be worn later.

I love doing their costumes. lol.

I always took both - back then the parents had a bowl of candy and a bowl of change in readiness for all the charitable tricksters.... Horrid nuns. hrmph.

My kids took their Unicef envelopes along the last year that that was how it was done (it's now done before Halloween, since so few kids trick-or-treat), and I told them a similar thing (even though it was public school).... ask 'if you'd like to give money instead of candy, we'd appreciate it'. They came home totally jazzed... "Mom, everyone said we had to take candy too!!!" lol.

I've had 3 more - things is lookin up! They've all been decked out too! yaaaay.

I have to tell a story about my ex hubby .... he was never really into the spirit of pretty much any holiday... but one Halloween, he was informed by the kids and me that this particular year he WOULD be joining us trick or treating and he WOULD be required to dress up. All our attempts to help him put a costume together were rebuffed, so at 5:00 on that Halloween evening, he began to assemble his costume.

He took a garbage bag, cut holes out for the head and arms, put it over his head, smeared something sticky ( I forget what - maybe honey?) all over the bag, went out to the back yard, and rolled around in the leaves. The kids and I watched with increasing mortification - hoping against hope that he had a plan for pulling something amazing together with these antics.

Once done covering himself in leaves from the back yard, he pronounced his costume finished.

"What are you supposed to be?" we all chorused.

He replied... "The Creature from the Black Lagoon... of course!"

oh but wait.... it gets better...


about half way down the block, on about the third house or so, the wind picked up, and brought with it a stench most foul. Thinking it was something coming from the yard we were standing in, we quickly moved on.

So did the stench.... in fact the stench followed us for a couple more blocks - occassionally waning, but always returning with a vengeance....

Finally, I realized where it was coming from.






The dog doo doo that was stuck to the garbage bag with the leaves.



That story has been retold almost every year by my kids - ok well , maybe once or twice by me too.... he will go down in history for that costume. hee hee gag hee hee

My seven year old daughter was a black cat this year. It is NEXT to impossible to buy the components for such a costume without them being tramped up in some fashion. I loathe to think what this stuff will look like when she's in highschool. *sigh*

We bought about $30 worth of candy and had maybe 60 kids show up. I was kinda bummed since it was my first time shelling out. I was hoping for better results... and to not have so much damn yummy chocolate left over.

Ha ha, well I emptied the chocolates last, because they're my fav.

My boyfriend was out of control. He just kept buying stuff. We even had a couple of cases of pop designated for older trick or treaters, and thirsty parents. It was rediculous
