But too, it's really EXPENSIVE anymore to buy candy even if you get the huge bags.
Come on you two! Get candy and pig out on it!

(Sit in the dark and eat your favorite candy!)

Slapping forehead....Geez.. Must I do this for you!

(Not a bad idea......off to buy candy....)

I get candy to give out to our little goblins that knock on our door.

My dad gives out candy until they run out and then they give out pennies and such.

When I grew up, there was an older lady who got the most trick or treaters of them all. She gave out quarters every halloween, and was the most popular stop in our neighborhood.

I'm a Grinch where Halloween is concerned... not my favorite holiday.

Our neighborhood is small...49 houses. The few kids we have go to their church parties. We get lots of "outsiders" driving by, so we just shut off all lights and watch a movie. This year our son wants to go to his karate school's party, so DH and I will probably go to a movie or out shopping.

I can't vote. We are on a main road and get no trick or treaters. It's not fair!

I love Halloween. I give out tootsies pops, kit kats, reese cups, and M&M's. At least that is what I have bought so far. I usually end up giving each litlle Halloweener two or three peices of candy. I also take treats to each one of my classes. Sometimes my whole department will dress up and teach in their outfits. Maybe I will be Sarah Palin this year !

Btw, I have Snickers, Milky Ways and Kit Kats, all our favorites, just in case we have leftovers, lol.
