    I get about 12 at my house. At my parents' house--they live in a much bigger neighborhood than I do--they used to get 75+ but in the last 2 years, the number has dropped to fewer than 20. Sad, really. Halloween is my most favorite holiday.

    Ima.......yikes! Teens. :rolleyes

    We live in a neighborhood with lots of kids, so we buy 4 bags of the mini's and when they're gone, we're done. Then we bring in the carved pumpkins, turn off the porch and living room lights, and hang out in the family room. When we first moved here 16 years ago, there were only six houses on our street. We bought one small bag of candy, and were shocked to see vans pulling up with dozens of kids spilling out.......we were sorely underprepared that night.

    With our daughter being a sr. in h.s. now, Mr. Rose and I are coming to hard realizations.....this will be our last Halloween with her living at home. I'm fine.......really I am........

The only time I ever remember not having children come by was post 9/11.....the streets were deserted.
    Party? I'm on my way!!

    I usually get around 50 or so...I hate when the older kids show up, no costume, nothing. I'll have to try the disguised rocks!

    I do love seeing the little ones all dressed up, they're too cute!

    I'm the candy hander-outer. We moved into our house two years ago... on Hallowe'en. Let me tell you, the stupid questions we got that night! "Oh, did you just move in??"... my response should have been "Nope, we chose to decorate our house with a bunch of boxes and we always have a moving truck in the driveway!" I made sure to have candy on hand though for the kidlets. We had about 25 that night and about 30 last year. I give out handfuls to the kids, I figure it's one night!

    *Warning* Thread Jack ("trick or treat" has me thinking of Halloween stuff to do)


    Anyone know how to extend the life of a carved pumpkin? They end up being so gross after only a day.

    Now, back to the topic.

    Wow, Duxxy, I admire your courage. I'm surprised you didn't find a burning bag of feces on the doorstep.
