    Just wondering how busy people have been with trick-or-treetors(sp). I've gone through 3 bags each of candy bars already(Reese's, Almond Joy, & Kit Kat).

    Did you have Halloween party plans? If so, did you dress in costume? What was your costume? Did you entertain at home or going somewhere?

    Our Hallowe'en party food turned out surprisingly well - Witches soup (a smooth bright orange veg soup), severed fingers (sausage rolls shaped to resemble fingers, almonds for nails and a dribble of ketchup for the blood), eyeballs susepended in blood (white marzipan balls and smarties set in strawberry jelly), and witches brew (coca cola floats with strawberry cordial "blood" - for those who don't like fizz we replaced the coke with dark grape juice and explained that the fizzy drinks were the ones with frogs in them and the others had toads ...). A good time was had by all.
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

    We had zero kids come to our house. We were a bit surprised, because a few families with kids have moved into our neighborhood over the course of the year.

    Our neighborhood is a bit off the beaten path, but we were out running some errands last evening and saw very few kids out anywhere. I think they all go to the mall or something now.

    Our local Wal-Mart had Trick-or-Treat(sp) on Sunday with the best costume contest and a coloring contest. I really think with the economy still in a lull that stores are promoting these events to boost sales. Meaning to get people in the store and they might buy something.

    We had a decent number but not a lot. I think we went through half a bag of candy. There weren't many houses on our block giving out candy either so DD and DS didn't get a whole lot. I remember when I was a kid we'd get quite a bit more than they get now.

    We were going to go to a party Saturday but I was sick so we ended up staying home.

    My dad sets up tents in the front yard each year with monsters and things he's created. Family & friends come out each year to help scare people and there's also a potluck/big thing of chili. It's as big of a family holiday as all the other ones, LOL.

    I dressed up for the first time since I was a kid (probably about 20 years ago?). I created my costume & had a blast doing it:

    I also made kitty litter cake:
