    She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

      Up to 16 in the first hour...I think this is a record for us. I'm not sure that we've ever had more than 20 or so in the entire 2 hours alloted for TOTing. My Rice Krispy treats are gone (I had the last one)...kids grabbed those right away. Now it's the Ritz Bits cheese sandwich crackers and I opened a couple of boxes of granola bars. k

        Kristen - we just finished and had 300+ kids, plus lots of teenagers. Many from outside the neighborhood. I had to go out for more candy twice. Still we kept the good stuff. Big grin

          Wow! We went TOTing a couple of times with my hubby's uncle's grandkids...they live in one of those neighborhoods where they get hundreds of kids in a night. That's some crazyness. I've always lived in neighborhoods that were pretty remote. Right now we are "in town," but on sort of a strange corner without a lot of other houses, no street light, and no sidewalk, so we only get a few. We only got 17 tonite, but that's still a pretty good year for us. The first 2-3 years in this house I think we had under 5, total. Word must be getting around that we give out good stuff. k

          My dogs are fast, not me

            We had about 75 and shut the light off when we ran out of candy, just after 8:00. My husband dressed up with a creepy mask, black robe, skeleton hands and then he handed out candy in character. When little kids were afraid to come up the walk, I'd meet them halfway. The funniest were the pre-teen girls saying you're not scary and then they would run screaming when he'd limp after them. It's our first Halloween in this neighborhood and it was fun!

              Zero, zilch, none!! We get no TOT'ers here! The bonus is that we can both take the kids out since no one comes anyways! We took the kids in to town & they did collect a pretty good haul. Too good, especially considering I'll let them eat a few pieces, then send the rest to work w/ my hubby for the guys he works with. Except, of course, anything that says "dark chocolate" which I immediately confiscate. It's not safe for children, I hear...only safe for Mommy's that don't need it!!! Evil grin
