Halloween Time!!!

We've had to discuss with baby madscientist that its 'Halloween Time' not Halloween proper....she kept thinking it was time to get out and get some candy from the neighbors...

But who can blame her really, when her house looks like this!

We are calling this phase 1

Do your neighbors have any idea of what to expect from you at Halloween?

No I don't think they know what to expect from us....
So far the reaction from the neighbors has been very positive. We're getting comments like...'its very tasteful'....

Actually most of the neighbors are going out of their way to warn us how crazy busy Halloween will be. They all say that we can expect 500 kids minimum!!! That's nuts...they say its so busy that all they have time to do is sit on their porches and give out candy as fast as they can....I'm worried about this and getting decent trough put for our display....

I checked our clicker from last year and we got 302. It didn't seem that bad actually, I don't remember having a rough time keeping up or anything like that. And we had candy leftover! I'm sure it will be busier where you are though.

Can't wait for phase two! We walked by the house yesterday early evening with the kid and it was awesome.

Can't wait to bring the kid over to trick-or-treat on Halloween.

So many people warned us last year about the number of trick or treaters on St. Charles that we ended up overbuying candy. We maybe bought 15 larger bags or so. The big kids who came by later in the night got handfuls! And I had leftover Heath bars to bake with for almost a whole year!
