    But if you want to go and do this then do so, but to make thing look gloomy by adding in sauce.
    I am so glad no kid of mine will ever visit your house, not that I would let them do it in the first place.
    LOL calm down!

    My sister's daughter was invited to go treak or treating last year...she was 6.

    My sister said yes she could go with her friend, believeing that the mother was taking them out.

    Well, the other mother just sent the 2 6 year old out by themselves....WTF?????? Thats shocking

    Well I don't think I will do it next year. It's been an hour since the appointed start time - and no kiddies have showed up at all. And they've got school tomorrow so they won't be out much later I imagine.

    There were definitely some kiddies dressed up and ready to go - but that was the time I take my dog for a walk. The note definitely says starts at 6pm not ends...

    PS finally - neighbour across the road felt sorry for me and sent his kids over...

    I find it lots of fun. I went to an adult halloween party on the weekend and had a great time.
    I've taken the kids to some pre-approved houses earlier this arvo.
    They LOVE dressing up so even if we didn't go out they'd be happy to hand out lollies in costume.
    Even our Demon dog enjoyed it :P Some of the kids had such creative costumes.

    I love the idea of handing out flyers a week or so before so you don't have to participate if you don't want & those that do can be found easier.

    Well it's in full swing here even though its blowing 30 knots at the moment.
    I have been watching how Mojo reacts with the kids as they are pretty freaky looking. I've been real pleased with him as so far he hasnt shown any aggression or been scared of them at all. Tale wagging, wanting to play, lapping up the pats and the "Oh, cute puppy!" comments. He's really injoying it and is first at the door to greet them.
    The young fella's pretty stoked with his bounty too.
    Forgot to take pics of them but heres one from last year.

    I take it back - between 7 and 8pm about 20 kids accompanied by parents, including 3 kids who looked like they really didn't need any lollies but they were quite polite - so they got some anyway.

    Most popular things - ie first to go - were muslie bars and bottled water - go figure. Parents thought the bottled water was great.

    Frosty was her grovelly self, which some parents mistook for "timid" - how can you call it timid when she's dragging herself as hard as she can to get closer to you? Quite the commando crawler. And more than one wanted to take her home. I'm pretty sure they'd give her back just as quick - but I got a few plugs in for AWL.

    Christmas in July... to me is kind of pointless! Lol one Christmas is enough per year for me.

    Halloween, I thought was originated with the pagans?! since they seemed to start a lot of traditions which were then taken over by the Christians/Catholics (which ever one) in their attempt to remove any other religion.

    I personally have no issue with it, I don't think in my suburb it is really possible for kids to do anyway since we are rural acreage, most houses are fully fenced with dogs so I wouldn't go in any yards. If I had kids I would let them participate (if possible) but they would be fully supervised and I would make sure a letter drop was done before hand so that willing parties were aware.

    It really is just a lot of fun, I love anything ghoulish and evil so would have a ball! lol

    My kids had a ball, i would have had more than 60 kids tonight, even had to get more lollies at one stage was underestimating its attraction. Remember no school tomorrow Melbourne cup.
