[Things I ♥ Thursday] Trick-or-Treaters

I grew up in a neighborhood where my brother and I were (for the longest time) the only kids on the street. It was the kind of neighborhood where the houses have lots of space in between and the next kid lived quite a ways down the road.

On Halloween we were lucky if we even got one trick-or-treater. Trick-or-treating in our neighborhood consisted of me and my brother walking across the road to the house at the top of the hill, where Mr. Ryan would open a bag of candy corn and dump half the contents into my brother's bag and the other half into mine.

Now that I am grown, I have always looked forward to kids coming to my door on Halloween. But no matter where we have lived, we were lucky to get even one much less two trick-or-treaters at our door. That is until we bought our house last year. Last Halloween we had over 50 kids come to our door! I spent more on candy than I did my phone bill! I am excited to see how this year will be. Only a few more days until I find out!

  1. We live in a huge neighborhood so we get many trick or treaters. It's always so much fun to see the variety of costumes!

  2. ooh I love the honeybee costume. I miss dressing up for Halloween. Looking forward to seeing this years pictures you take.

  3. I'm so glad to see a parent who doesn't put their child's photos on the internet! Good for you!

    We don't get many trick or treaters, either. But our church sponsors a Trunk or Treat. Since Halloween is on a Sunday, we had it last night. For the first time, we did a trunk, and it was a lot of fun.

    I found you on ExposeYourBlog.

  4. We used to get a lot but it's died out now. Yesterday we had two groups of under fives - they were gorgeous!
