The last several years we have bought little hugs drinks. Our road is very dangerous in the day time let alone at night, so we rarely get any kids at all. But we buy these just in case...if no one comes I give them to my own kids.
This year we will be at a Halloween party so I don't knwo if dh will buy anything or not for anyone who might come. He won't mind handing them out.
My dad buys them too, and also some raisins and a few bags of small candy bars.

We only have 5 kids in our neighborhood - 3 boys in high school and 1 boy & 1 girl in grade school. Last year none came - the year before we weren't home. Before the kids got so big and were off to the town held parties, we always have the largest candy bars that we like to pass out. This year we have the big Snickers bars (if we don't eat them 1st) & the neighbor kids will each get a dollar bill if they come.

Happy Halloween everyone

We don't get that many kids here, maybe thirty? I don't know what we will hand out this year. It is hard to find candy dd isnt allergic to.
Don't stay were you are tolerated, go where you are celebrated!

We don't get many kids here...Last year we had none because the little ones usually have to wear a snowsuit for trick or treating...big snow storm last year...and we live on the busiest street in town...

Not sure if I will even bother buying anything this year...

Smiles & hugs...

We always have chocolate bars and things like fuzzy peaches. The weather here is usually rainy and cold or snowy and cold so we like to make it worth their while to trudge out there. They are such troopers! I give the same things to the older kids too, I think it is fun for them to re live and it also keeps them away from my back lane!
We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information in our heads.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Don't get your knickers in a knot It makes you walk funny!

Most times, when we are home, I can out candy, One year after cleaning up DS's room, I collected all the Kid's meal toys and put each one in a baggie and they were a big hit.

Most trick or treaters don't come to the top of the hill in my housing area, if the magic words are said, they will get extra candy.

This year, the boys are spending the night with their cousins 25 miles away- there's a street in their town that really does it up for Halloween, so we're going to that.

We will leave behind a cooler of iced Capri Suns, and my neighbor's gonna keep an eye out for any big meanie kids who swipe five at a time.

Usually we give out gum, Smarties, and Dum Dum pops. In my house, chocolate purchased in advance doesn't make it to Halloween...

I use to hand out all sorts of Christian literature on halloween. I don't hand out literature anymore though. Halloween has gotten pretty scary these days and it seems especially in my neighborhood.

I stopped handing out treats last year. Not many kids come down our small street and I got tired of waiting for more to come. When my daughter was young we lived out in the country. She uses a wheelchair and I wheeled her yard to yard a lot of times people were unprepared because so few kids came. Anyway she enjoyed it.
