|Snackers in his costume w/the candy|
I started to put on my costume anyway as Snackers and I started discussing options for where we could go or what we could do to make the day feel more like it should. He decided to grab some take-out from the burrito shop and I turned on the Ghost Hunters Halloween Live special that I like to watch every year but the sun was still up (partially) and it just wasn't as fun as it usually is. When the first trick-or-treaters arrived we opted to sit out front for a little while to pass out candy and then it happened ... we were filled with the Halloween spirit. Our little neighborhood was PACKED. The streets were so full of people that it looked like Mardi Gras! We went through 160 pieces of assorted candy from those big variety bags (two bags of 80 pieces each), 50 boxes of junior mints, and 30 packets of Smartees. We were getting hit in groups of 20 - 30 kids at a time. A pick-up truck drove by so full of kids that it bottomed out going over a speed bump and then it parked and all the kids piled out and started running door-to-door.

2 hours: 200 packets of pretzels, 150 packets of salted peanuts, 5 packets of honey roasted peanuts, 2 packets of Lorna Doon 100-calorie snack packs, and a lil' Debbie Snack Cake later we were out again and this time there was nothing left in the pantry but Ramen Noodles and Peanut Butter so we put a sign on the door saying we were out, turned off the lights (the universal parent-to-parent signal for 'don't knock on my door please') and called it a night. We closed up shop just after 8 p.m. but the streets were still packed until well after 10. Next year we'll have to buy candy a few months in advance before the prices go up so that we can afford to get a lot more of it!!!
