We had a fair amount, too. I never had any come when I lived in an apartment, so I was all excited about it this year. My husband (we're living in the house he's had for several years) wasn't too excited about it - he said that usually kids come by with grocery bags demanding candy & they don't even bother to dress up.
But this year was pretty good - I bought a moderate amount of good candy - stuff we wouldn't mind eating if there were leftovers. The neighborhood kids started coming by around 6:30, and they were dressed up really cute!
By 8:00 we had given out all of the candy, so then we just turned off the house lights & watched a movie. I think the ones who don't bother to dress up must come out later, and they didn't come since our lights were off by that time. It was nice to see the neighborhood kids all done up.
The cute little ones come out earlier so they can be home early.
When I was a little girl, we would dress up & go trick-or-treating, and when I got older I would stay home with my mother and we would dress up to give out candy. We really got into it...my husband isn't into it at all, but I'm working on him.
