Report for this year. We had 53 goblins -- three of them after 9 o'clock!
We gave away jumbo Pixy Stix, and a variety of prizes in the prize bin. Some large coffee-table photo books, a few other children's books, stuffed monkeys, bottles of water, glow sticks, bouncing rubber eyeballs, plastic cockroaches...
We had a few groups sing pumpkin carols, we did the penny-on-the-forehead trick and penny tic-tac-toe, a few draw-on-a-notepad-on-your head, and we only did the stick trick once.
A few kids came prepared. We didn't seem to have as many teenagers. The neighbors that have the birthday party didn't get as many guests either -- two of their sons were still at work.
