As for me, my Halloween was pretty much identical to the way it is every year. I get really excited and fill decorated treat bags with candy and toys, and then I spend the entire night staring out my window looking for nonexistent trick-or-treaters. It's pretty sad, actually.
For some reason, Husband and I thought maybe this year we'd have a surge in kiddies, but we had about twenty, which is pretty much our standard number here. We live in a really old neighborhood----and no, I don't mean old houses----and there just aren't that many kids to start with. Plus, our neighbors are all complete stick-in-the-muds, and don't even stay home on Halloween night. Last year, I had several groups of kids walk RIGHT. PAST. my house, while I stared longingly out the window.
This year, I promised that would never happen again, so I stocked up on lots of decorations for the outside of our house. We even strung orange Halloween lights around our lamp post.

So, anyway, this is my outfit from Monday, when I went to all the after-Halloween sales with my dad. Um, but they were pretty lousy. I am not at all embarrassed to say that we hit five different stores, but all I left with was a fake pumpkin and three packages of treat bags. LAME! Prices just weren't as fantastic as I was hoping, and nothing was jumping out at me anyway.
