Number of trick or treaters tonight: 133
Number of showings of "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" through our window: Five
Approximate percentage of "thank you's" received: 80% (not bad!)
Number of doorbell rings: Only one, the rest were knock, knock, knocks
Number of kids wearing the supposedly "it" costume of 2011 (angry birds): Exactly zero
Most popular candy choice: Starbursts followed by Twix, then M&M's, then Milky Way, etc.
Number of candy bars left over: Only two Snickers bars. Whew! We barely had enough, and even at that, I did have to raid an old stash in our pantry for the last few candy bars. Dave decided he needed to test one (solely out of the goodness of his heart--yeah, yeah) to make sure we wouldn't be known as the "stale candy bar house" of the neighborhood. Heaven knows, we'd never be able to live that down.
Funny aside: One year, Sean rigged up a walkie-talkie under my little ghost who stands guard at the bottom of our walkway. Needless to say, Sean scared the living daylights out of our trick or treaters when they heard that ghost moaning out to them when they walked by. Perhaps Seanie thought they would drop their loot and run for the hills leaving him with a boatload of candy???
