Estimating how much candy to buy is one of the arts I’ve never mastered. I always have way too much or way too little, but never close to what I need. Add to that, I never know if I’m giving out too much or too little. It would be nice if you could get pre-orders on this stuff, but that might be a lot to ask. Oh well. I just had a good looking Buzz Lightyear at the door. I also had what I swear was a princess in a white dress with an eyepatch. It was kind of cool. It made me wonder if maybe the kid just wears an eyepatch or if it was some kind of statement.

  1. how many did you get? jackie got almost 100. I think my house would maybe get like one. It would be fun to give the one kid like the whole bag of candy.

  2. Maybe 25 kids. I expected more, because this neighborhood has kids EVERYWHERE. It was weird, all the action was between 4:30 and 5:45, and by about 7 we got the last kid we ever saw, only 3 or 4 of them after 6 PM. In Atlanta last year, we got one group of like 15 kids all at once, and never saw anyone else again. If you knew it was going to go like that, we’d have given those kids all the candy.
