Trick or Treat Commentary



Knock 1: 5 kids ranging from 7 or so to 2 years old. The toddler was a blonde curly-top with no costume, and after she got her treat she stood and looked at me for a minute, and then said "bye!" and left.

Knock 2: 1 little boy by himself. I think it was a King Kong costume or something. His mom stayed back on the sidewalk.

Knock 3: 2 girls, 2 boys. The toddler looked at my bowl of Play-doh and said "where candy?"

Knock 4: 1 little boy with his mom on the sidewalk, dressed in a black robe with a green face. He initially took a pink Play-doh and I said "are you sure you want a pink one?" so he chose a black one instead.

Knock 5: A gigantic dice! The boy was with his grandpa and he was probably 9. He could only fit one hand out the side of the huge cardboard box he was in, so I had to help him load up his bag.

Knock 6: A very cute 6-year-old Snow White.

It's 8:30. We haven't had many goblins, but I think I'll close up shop. Total for the night: 13.

You have us beat! We only just had our 2 neighbour girls come by. I guess our little access road is too dark and scary.

I like your idea of giving out toys! very smart!

I actually thought we'd have more, since we live on the edge of an apartment complex. That's OK - 13 was just fine. And fitting, too, for Halloween!

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that although I don't post in LJ anymore or comment on your journal very often, I'm still reading it. I'm always so amazed by your craftiness.

I'd like to commission you to knit another stocking for us for Christmas. Two years ago... maybe three, you knit Chris and I stockings. We love them! We'd really like a matching or coordinating one for Chelsea. Do you think this is possible?
