It's now November, but was Halloween for y'all? I was super excited this year since I was living in apartments for Halloween 2009-2016. I mentioned I went overboard on the candy, but Target's deals sucked me in this year. I had to use two bowls since I didn't have one big enough to hold everything. I separated the nuts from the non-nuts.
Overall it was a fun night. When I got home from work, I did a quick two miles around the neighborhood. I figured 4:30 was too early to start trick or treating, but I wanted to be home for the little ones. I know they're out first since they usually go to bed early.
I had my Evil Queen pumpkin, and my mom had brought down luminaries for me to use. They don't have kids in their mountain neighborhood, and I love these luminaries. Next year though I need a light stick so I don't have to play with matches. Lighting the candles was a little tricky with Tuesday's wind.
I'd say I had a successful night for a new neighborhood. 6 groups, and I saw princesses, baseball players, a couple Harley Quinns, a Kylo-Ren, a mummy, a ninja, and two Oompa Loompas, who sang for their candy. I figured their group was the last of the night, and I said all the kids could take extra candy. They were creative!
And I did have quite a bit of candy leftover. I brought it into work and put "free candy" on the bag before leaving it in the kitchen. It was gone before the end of the day.
