I grossly underestimated the amount of children living in and around our neighborhood. Last week we purchased 2 large bags of candy for Halloween. I got home around 6pm and knew it was going to be busy from the large quanitity of kids that I saw trick-or-treating already. Of course, thanks to Daylight Savings Time ending last weekend, it’s dark at 5:30. At 7pm, I ran out of candy. I was even being stingy and only giving out one or two pieces. I went to the store and bought four bags of Hershey’s Kisses… the only candy they had left. Around 9:30 the last kids came by and I had about 20 kisses left. Needless to say, I’ll be better prepared next year. After all, this was our first Halloween living in Lakewood.

I began to suspect there were a few kids making a second trip to our house. I saw many repeat costumes. Is that allowed? I also saw a few too many kids that were visably too old to be trick-or-treating… and they didn’t even have a cool costume! A black sweatshirt and a random monster mask to not a good costume make. Although I vividly remember being that age… 13 or 14 years old and desperately wanting to go trick-or-treating but knowing I was getting too old for it. That last attempt to avoid growing up.

I forgot to mention the cool souviners we got from Universal Studios last weekend. We got our normal generic souviner from everywhere we go: a shot glass. Bill got an awesome Homer Simpson clock:

Homer’s eyes follow the beer bottle on the second hand.

I got a grape Pez t-shirt that’s scratch-n-sniff. You scratch the logo and it smells like grape Pez. It says “Have a grape day” on the back.

We also got Shrek and Fiona headbands. I wore mine last night as I handed out candy to trick-or-treaters.
Bill’s obviously doesn’t have the tiara.

    That tiara is sweet! I think it would be pretty funny if Bill wore the one with the tiara though…
    Can you Photoshop his face underneath the tiara? Hehehe.
