Halloween - 8913oh style






































All Hallows Eve. Our neighborhood, which I have bragged about before, does not let one down on this the night that kids ages 2 through 14 wait for all year long. Every year, we head out into the street at 6pm sharp. When the kids were small, our neighborhood was the perfect trick or treat utopia. 46 houses all of which are friends, ten thousand kids, a gate keeping em all safely contained and moms and dads walking at a leisurely pace around the block just one time . Home by 7:30 and Halloween was over. As the kids have gotten older, they have broadened their horizons. Our neighborhood has 2 sister neighborhoods which are set up just like ours. Last year we did 2 of the neighborhoods. This year we did all three.
We walked into the house at about 9:30 and figured we have enough candy to feed New York for about a week. The kids all agree, it isn't about the candy. They will give it all to the Bishop for his candy bowl next week. It is about being with family and friends here in 8913oh.

I'm going to have to agree with jori-o, I covet your neighborhood also. But even more so, I miss teenagers enjoying the fun of Halloween and good friends to share it with.
