Trick-or-Treat Live Blogging

I worked past 6 pm tonight so I missed the beginning, but we get a LOT of trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. We decided to keep a tally this year. Here's what we've got so far:

6:37 62 kids*
6:59 81 kids
7:09 94 kids
7:16 114 kids
7:23 150 kids
7:48 165 kids**
8:24 173 kids

* including the heartwarming family that stopped to take photos with our Obama yard sign after collecting their candy. Awww!!
** our neighborhood is getting darker and darker as the neighbors one by one run out of candy and turn off their lights.

We were out wandering around and took a few pix, but haven't downloaded them yet, there was a huge block party. I didn't take many of the kids because people don't really like you pointing cameras at their kids any more.

Then we lit candles and and ate a pomegranate.

Sorry I am so far behind.

I wish I had counted mine! I think you'd have won though, especially with the Obama story.

Wow, 173? We didn't get nearly that many.

Oh, yeah, and Barack Obama is awesome.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...
