Up To My Eyeballs

I was so proud of the candy I planned to give out to the Halloweenies this year.  Chocolate eyeballs with assorted inside goo of peanut butter, caramel, or fudge.

The Trick or Treaters that showed up loved them~ "Ewwww!!! Eyeballs!"

But due to the 7:00pm Texas Rangers game, and not realizing at first that I had a burned out porch light, we didn't have a whole lot of traffic this year.  We had a few Batmans, a Spiderman, a Ladybug, a Ghost Bride and a few assorted monsters stop in for a treat, but that was about it.

It's been well over an hour since anyone has rang our doorbell.  And anybody in the age-range that I want to see out trick or treating is most likely in bed by now.

Eeeeewwwwww...those are just gross enough that any kid would regret missing them. You should have posted a sign - "Hey Kids! I have EYEBALLS!!!"

Those are awesome! I wonder if my neighborhood is just growing up because I didn't have a single trick-or-treater knock on the door.

Sucks because I've been doing so good going to the Y and getting on the stationary bike but now... well, I can't just let our candy go to waste. Or is it going to go to "waist" anyway? :)

That was a really bad pun wasn't it.

Awww... we never get any trick-or-treaters because we live on a steep hill and it's not worth it for them to come up here. Makes it easy but I miss the little goblins!
