Happy Halloween!

I was pretty into putting on a good Halloween for the neighbourhood kids. It's the first Halloween in a long time where I am living in a place that kids will come. Our last place was a duplex near downtown and before that I was in graduate student housing in univeristy. So I made the front yard creepy, I put on lots of make-up (I almost never wear makeup on the weekend), a scary hat and a witch-like costume.

Me with one of my props.

It was only somewhat fun though. Most kids were surprised I was even dressed up and I freaked the first few kids right out because I was being spooky. I didn't try and spook the young ones but the older kids should have had fun with it...shouldn't they?  They all just seemed to want their candy without any of the fun. I was disappointed!

I was also disappointed we didn't get more kids.

This is me reading reading blogs
while waiting for more kids.

I have way too much candy left despite giving multiples per child. I've eaten way too many already :-/

We haven't had a trick or treater in years, but then that isn't a suprise given the length of our driveway (LONG), combined with how steep parts of it are! Jason always buys plenty of candy "Just in case," LOL.

And why should the kids have all the fun???
I would also dress up, but the problem is that we live so far away from all kids...we had one visitor, Elins 6 yo cousin, that was all.
