    but now it depends how my health is in October. Last year I had bronchitis and didn't get much of anything done. This year my arm's in a sling, so we'll see.
    I do always treat though. I sit in the driveway with the candy though because the costumes freak out our dog, especially if there's an older kid with a scary costume who's with a younger kid, she tends to get protective. We too have gotten fewer and fewer trick or treaters the past few years, but I think that has to do with the kids aging up into high school and not enough younger families moving in.

    Our best Halloween was about 6 years ago when we lived in a different neighborhood. We had a screened in front porch, and we made this elaborate Halloween display. Then on Halloween we performed this short play I wrote about a beheaded bride, we did the play every half hour, and by the end of the night we had a huge crowd on the lawn watching.  It was a LOT of fun.
