It's my first Halloween at this house and in this neighborhood. I wasn't sure if it would be a quiet neighborhood or one of those that gets bombarded with trick or treaters so I bought a lot of candy. I had all sorts of plans for decorating but I didn't want to go overboard so I ended up with a pumpkin, a cat and pumpkin placemat that I got for 50 cents and I hung on the door, spiderweb and some flickering battery powered candles. I looked all over for the candles and ended up finding them in the Christmas section of Big Lots. I don't like that they bring out the Christmas decorations so early but in this case it worked out. Multi-holiday decorations. I like it.
We ended up having a very slow night. 22 trick or treaters over a 2 1/2 hour period. It was fun though. I have a lot of candy left over to take to work and all of the decorations can be reused for next year...except the pumpkin, of course.
