Happy Halloween!  
So I gave my sister very explicit instructions on what candy & how much to buy this year for Halloween. She never buys enough, but The BFF always comes through with backups, but since The BFF wasn't coming down this year, I was nervous. Sis did excellent on the type of candy tho! She didn't quite buy enough, had we had our usual turnout, but because it was 35 degrees outside, numbers were down & it ended up perfect. I insisted we give out 2 pieces per kid, because I wanted to be the "cool house", lol. I ended up being able to give out 2 per kid, plus 3 for every Spiderman who came by! I shut off the porch light at 7:50, with 10 minutes left in scheduled city trick-or-treating, and was left with one sandwich baggie full of candy for me. Not bad! Winston helped at first, but then he had to go to his room because he tried to follow some sweet princesses home - right out the front door & down the sidewalk with them! They brought him back for me, nice girls.

Here's Winston & I tonight, as Spidergirl & Spiderdog!

And me a few weekends ago, before we took all four niblings to the small zoo that was having a Boo At The Zoo event!

And Sis (the witch), Me, and Canadian Bro (eh, breaking my photo posting rule about asking permission, but he wouldn't care) as a dragon!

Glad you had a good Halloween. I gave 2 mini packs of sweets to each child.

See, that makes you a Cool House! The only way it could be better is if you gave out a full-sized candy bar instead of the minis! ;)

*grins* Winston is such a sweetheart. I was amazed at how good Pippin was last night, not a single bark. And several little kids asked to pet her. Next year I *must* dress her in some kind of costume. You all look so great!

I follow a writer, M Dolon Hickmon on FB. He posted pictures of his daughter and her dog's Halloween costumes. She was a police officer, and the dog was her 'prisoner'.

I couldn't believe him though! I had the front door open to hand the pretty little princesses their candy and he just waked right out the door and followed them down the sidewalk!!

Next year I *must* dress her in some kind of costume. You all look so great!</I. Thank you! And absolutely, you must dress Pippin up for Halloween!

Also glad to hear y'all had a great Halloween. I went to bed early, so Dad did the candy giving. No one rang the doorbell, not sure why. The kids all rattled the door instead. Later we had a strange gray cat rattle the door, and dad put out cat food. LOL.

Yeah, people don't hardly ring our doorbell either. Like all year around. I feel like putting out a sign that says, "I can't hear you when you knock, ring the damn doorbell!" lol Awww, the cat wanted some 'candy' too!
