@MexiPino:  Put up a sign saying to get the candy next door.  lol I’m sure sometimes people gave some for the neighbours to hand out, but I think most of the time people did it when they didn’t want to bother handing out candy!

FI is working late and my parents really don’t get many trick or treaters… I’ll be doing laundry and catching up on some shows.

Back in the day we turned it into a laid-back date night at a restaurant and just had a good time catching up with one other.  It was great.  Or we would go for an extended walk in the neighborhood just to look at all the costumes.

Last year and this year we’re taking his little niece trick-or-treating.

Welll, I will give out a bit of candy. But not for long. We’re getting cheap unusual tacos from a Japanese restaurant! They’re so amazing. And they have them for cheap tonight. Score!

It doesn’t look like we’re getting any trick or treaters this year so we are going to carve our pumpkin while watching It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown because we are dorks.

If we were looking to get out of the house I’d probably get dinner or maybe go see a movie.

I am either going to go home and try to sleep off this headache or go to my mother’s house, because my grandparents just got into town and I haven’t seen them since our wedding almost a year ago! Halloween is the anniversary of the death of someone I was close to so it never feels right to “celebrate” anymore.

We get a lot of trick or treaters and I am being a total halloween scrooge. I really just want to put out a basket and let them take the candy. I mean really that’s all they really want!

if you don’t wanna give out candy, don’t turn on the outside light. isn’t that one of those unwritten rules? you only go to houses where the outside light is on.

our trick or treat hours are done. we had maybe 40 kids. it’s pouring rain here :/ i fully intend on starting to design a 2014 planner tonight, while watching tv for the rest of the night. even though i should run to the apple store and ask about my computer.

We don’t get trick or treaters as most city parents bring their kids to events during the day or to the burbs. SO is currently making a homemade pizza. We are relaxin drinking pumpkin beers and will carve pumpkins after we eat since we have been meaning to do that but have been crazy busy. We’ll cook the seeds and then maybe watch the news before bed since we both work very early.
