1st Trick-or-Treat results

After much deliberation in the candy isle (and about 10 minutes of discussion), Clint and I picked out the perfect and affordable mix of candy. We settled on Skittles, Starburst, Milky Way, and Kit-Kats. I must tell you the reasoning behind the excitement. I grew up in the country and never had a single trick-or-treater. When I got too old to go out myself, I would dress up each year in hopes of handing out some candy. Each year I was disappointed because of course, no one came. I know, I felt sorry for myself too. Anyway, Clint said he really never got to hand out candy either because he was always going out himself.
This year, we felt pretty confidant we might get some little people knocking at our door because we live in a fairly busy neighborhood. (Even though most of them are Army people.) So, we stocked up the candy bowl, lite our jack-o-lanterns, turned on our porch light and waited. And....nothing! We started watching Halloween movies and looking out the window....nothing! Just as we were about to feel REAL sorry for ourselves, we heard a knock at the door. There standing before us was our one and only trick-or-treater dressed up in a Superman costume. He couldn't have been a day over 3. He could barley stand up without help. But, that's OK, we loaded him down with candy and felt really good about ourselves! I know in the future we might cherish the days of only 1 trick-or-treater if we live in a busy neighborhood. So, our goal for next year: 2 trick-or-treaters!!!

Thats funny because we had to close our door. We bought all of this candy because we knew there was going to be a lot of kids and we still had to close the door. I guess $40.00 is not enough.
