Halloween 2014
We had 82 trick-or-treaters this year, plus maybe two or three non-compliant goblins (who wouldn't play along with doing a trick to get a treat). This is down slightly from last year when we had 96. Many of them kids remembered us from last year; the last group of four (the only people who came after 8:30) have been coming for four years, for example.

Only two or three kids dressed as "Elsa."

A few kids came prepared. Did the "stick trick" with the onesy-twosies, and sang songs with the larger groups. A couple sang "Let it go," we did "Deck the Halls with Poison Ivy" a bunch of items, and one group actually sang "Happy Birthday" to their friend. A few of them had dance moves, one little 7-year-old Elsa skipped jump rope (not easy when you're wearing a princess dress) -- she came prepared, I think she's been here before.

We have two big 8-foot blow-up decorations, and a pumpkin or two. First use of my light-up sign. Plugged it into the carriage light, so it was always lit. I'm pondering whether it would make sense to hook it up to a motion sensor, next year.

Current Mood: chipperchipper
