No Ding Dong

Earlier in the week I wasn't sure if I'd be home for Halloween so I delayed buying any candy. Wednesday night I decided I would indeed be home most of Friday evening so I ran to the store and bought two whopping bags of Halloween candy for about a zillion bucks.

I raced home from work on Friday- got out a little later than I wanted to- but I got home while it was still light outside. I waited on my couch for the doorbell to ring. I waited some more. Not one kid stopped by. Usually I get about around 20 ghost, goblins, and assorted other costumed youngsters. Not a single one this year. Nada. I turned to Theo and asked if he scared them all away and he looked up with his big eyes as if he was afraid I was accusing him of something horrible.

We had a grand total of 9. And Mommy bought 7 big bags of candy.
Sigh...

We only got two groups of two kids! And we got the 150-piece bag of candies. Where did all the kids go?

We never have any kids coming because Halloween is not a big thing here in Australia and there has been a campaigne to discourage children (and adults) from consuming sweets and junk foods. Obesity is a problem in this country.
