Trick or Treat!

It's a rainy Halloween here in Oxford. Some neighborhoods are postponing trick-or-treating until tomorrow, but so far Oxford is still on.

Ted and I have been looking forward to having trick-or-treaters come to our door. For the seven Halloweens that we lived in Boulder, we never had a single trick-or-treater. Not one.

We lived in a condo, and the first year we thought we'd get a ton, since it's easy pickings! I mean, one building and something like 50 doors to knock on! But nope. We stopped buying candy after the second Halloween of no-shows.

Now that we're surrounded by neighborhood children, we're prepared with candy once again! But just to be safe, we've only bought candy that we want to eat, in case we end up with lots of leftovers. I chose Reeses Peanut Butter Pumpkins and Ted chose Almond Snickers (sorry, kids with nut allergies).

Hopefully some costumed kids will stop by to appreciate our classic jack-o-lantern and get some treats!

UPDATE: We've already had 8 trick-or-treaters!


  1. Boo to those candy choices!! Next year think about Jack when you choose, so you don't hear the "mommy, none for me" echoing from NJ ;)

  2. I actually DID think of Jack... and then I went ahead and bought the candy that I wanted to eat... :( I'm so ashamed.... Next year! Maybe you can throw out some allergy-approved candy suggestions? Starbursts? Jolly Ranchers?
