Treats

Tonight we have Play-Doh for the trick-or-treaters. We did it last year as well, and we had enough to carry it over until this year.

So far (it's 6:30), nobody has been to the door. And when I went out to light the jacks, they were already moldy! Sheesh. I'll keep this open and record who comes.

6:47 - Two boys sorta dressed up, probably about 10 years old. One of them had a batman mask on. Batman grabbed a Play-Doh really quickly, but the other took awhile to decide what color he wanted.

7:07 - An older boy in a scream mask with a scythe. His dad was standing right next to him.

7:08 - A superhero and a princess, probably around 5. They were too shy to say trick or treat but they both grabbed Play-Doh excitedly and leapt back down the front walk (well, the superhero anyway) and yelled thank you.

7:12 - Five kids - a football player and... four other people dressed in dark clothes, heh. They were excited to get Play-Doh.

7:12:30 - The sixth (I think they were all siblings or cousins) in the group, a witch with googly antennae. When she saw what was in the bowl she yelled "awesome!" and grabbed one and ran off to join the other five. They were yelling to their parent "she gave us Play-Doh!"

7:23 - A cute family - mom, dad (holding a pumpkin baby), three older kids and two younger kids. I counted my Play-Doh - only 7 left! Cory was at Fred's getting some cider so I asked him to grab a bag of candy. He said there wasn't much left - mostly Tootsie Rolls - but he found some Snickers and 3 Musketeers.

7:26 - Two girls, who yelled TRICK OR TREAT! when I opened the door. Their mom laughed from the sidewalk.

7:37 - Three teenaged girls and one guy who had a super deep voice and big hairy hands. I told them they were very tall. Cory had just gotten back with the candy so I offered them some. At least they thanked me. :D

7:38 - I'd just sat down when a princess knocked on the door. She was cute.

7:59 - A little Grim Reaper. He chose a white Doh. 3 Dohs left!

8:13 - Older brother, younger sister. Now I have one (yellow) Doh left.

8:40 - Shutting it down for the night. I haven't heard a peep outside. Happy Halloween!

I got kicked off a guy's porch for trick-or-treating in college. Seriously, he was effing MEAN! (And reading a Windows 95 for Dummies book.)

I admit that I am a scrooge when it comes to trick or treating. If you are old enough to have a job to pay for candy, you shouldn't be begging for some from me. But because I opened the door, it was my own fault so I gave them candy. :)

What age do you consider too old? You will hate to hear that I even trick-or-treated in college after I got married! I never considered that people might consider trick-or-treating as a kind of begging. For me it's the fun of dressing up and walking around with your friends -- Halloween is the only holiday I really like. (Speaking of Scrooge, I am not a Christmas person. Mark and I met in person (we were pen pals before) because we don't celebrate Christmas and were avoiding family Christmas activities.)

It was nice of you to still give the guys candy (rather than to say "get off my porch" all mean-like -- seriously, that guy was MEAN).

I think if you're in high school you're too old. Don't ask me why, though- I wonder if that's how my mom felt or something. I usually will have the porch light on early in the evening while the younger kids are out, and then turn it off as it gets later. But I can't be mean to 'em; the only thing I could say was "hmm, you guys are tall..." :D

i really dont want to see sd become ourbedrooms or one of those other communities. i like those communities for what they are, and this post
http://community.livejournal.com/saucydwellings/1475164.html?#cutid1 was not about decor, it was "look at my stuff and how much of it i have" kind of a thing. i'm not trying to be mean i just think its taken a turn to looking like just another community to post your rooms in.

i love the trick or treater post, i wish we got some but unfortunately we live in an apartment

Sounds like you had a busy Halloween! We had ZERO trick-or-treaters. Zilch. Zip. Nada.

It only took me a week and a half to finish the candy off myself. :-(
