ToT Tally

I got 3 doorbell rings so far and I think 9 or 10 ToTers including one toddler - cute! That's a record since we've lived here!

 

Re: ToT Tally

  • Ours are coming fast and furious right now. No stay at home moms in this neighborhood so the kids tend to go out later once the parents are out of work. We're leaving soon for dinner, because we've nearly run out of candy!
    "We tend to be patronizing about the poor in a very specific sense, which is that we tend to think,

    It's only 6:30 though.  I really need to see some cute kiddies today.
     

  • Wooot! I just got one -- couldn't have been older than 16 months.  Dressed as a San Diego charger -- face paint and everything!   Soooooooo cute.

    We didn't have ANY!  I'm so crushed!  We live smack in the middle of suburbia, a block from the new elementary school...where were all my kiddies?  Now I have an enormous bowl of candy sitting here with nowhere to go.

    I think I have some ideas as to where it would go in my house.  

  • I lost count but it has been a steady stream for the past hour & half. My huge bowl of pixie sticks, twizzlers, and superman candy sticks is nearly gone. The pixie sticks seem to be a big hit. The kids are reaching in asking for more!
  • We got zero :(

  • Bizarrely, we had a ton of kids roaming the neighborhood, but only a couple rings at the bell or knocks at the door.

    We went through 2 big bags of candy last year in this house... we didn't even get through 1/2 of one bag this year Sad

    We just put a bowl out on the front porch.  Hopefully some teenager will come dump the bowl into his/her pillowcase.

  • Zero here. ?I blame the fact that Dateline has run the "Pedophiles and psychos will either have sex with/poison your child this Halloween," stories for like 20 years.

    Trunk or Treat is lame. ?Parties are lame. ?Kids should get to ToT. ?Not ToTing is like not wearing your flag pin. ?Terrorists like Trunk or Treat.?

    I've never heard of Trunk or Treat.  What is this?

  • Well I've got about 11 pounds of candy, and so far fewer than 10 trick or treaters.  They are SUPER cute so far though - it's only 7 p.m. so I hope we have a few more.  After 8:30 I turn the lights off.  I refuse to give candy to 15 year olds.

  • We had none.  We were out for a little bit but we still got home during ToT time.  We face a field even though we're in a neighborhood and there's only a few homes on our row. Most of them don't give out candy so kids don't even bother with our street.  It's a shame.

  • We're getting a few more and can I say... they're killing me with their cuteness!  DAMN I want a kid!  Would just stealing one be wrong?

  • Dammit!  I just went outside to collect my empty bowl.  It was full.  I can't even get my candy pilfered.
  • Do y'all decorate for Halloween?

    I have my pumpkin lights all in my bushes as well as halloween signs in the yard and a big lighted pumpkin in the window. And the lights are all on around the house. So the kiddies all know I am here ready to give out candy!!!

    My bowl is just about empty now but it is 9:45 and bell has run in about 30 minutes so I think I am done for the night.

  • We only got 2 TOTers, which is similar to last year. I know there are kids in our neighborhood, but we live near the end of our road, atop a steep hill, and there aren't houses on the other side of the street. I think the kids are too lazy to come to our house!

  • 0!  Of course, we were only home for 45 minutes and didn't put our name on the list.

    What does the 'trunk' in 'trunk or treat' refer to? 

  • The last 2 weekends I've seen kids out and dressed up. ?ToT at all the little coffee shops and restaurants and boutiques sections that seem to inhabit most Denver neighborhoods. ?

    Last night at my friend's house, they probably got 20 kids. ?The first was some little punk, maybe 8. ?The doorbell doesn't work, so I heard someone knocking and came downstairs. ?When I opened the door, most kids had left, but he was there and sighed a huge "finally." ?I responded with a cheery little "my aren't we impatient" and mom snottily told me that they'd been waiting awhile. ?Sorry, free candy, shut up, punk kid and punk mom. ?Doorbell doesn't work. ?And kids don't knock loudly.?
