Our association has a few week session before and after the season for kids to try it, check out equipment... $25
We have told both our players the minute it stops being fun, we're done.

How was everyone's Halloween? Ours went pretty well. My wife and Joey collaborated on making his costume and it was a success. They took a car oars box and made a Mario Mystery Box for him to wear. He took it to school yesterday and I had a worry that some bully would be dressed up as Mario and Luigi and would stomp him for his lunch money - then I remembered that he had an account that i just needed to write a check for.

In the end it worked out well. We met up with some 13 year old girls dressed as Mario and Luigi who could have been good babysitter material if I had thought about asking. We did our whole street and part of neighboring one where several of his friends live. It was nice to see people (kids and parents alike) calling out his name.

We didn't really do anything on Halloween since we go to a parade where some of my family lives, so the kids get to just watch the parade and have candy tossed at them all night. They love it, and it's easy on us. Our neighborhood isn't a good one for trick or treating (dark road, lots of student rental properties, etc). Though I was surprised, last night we had our first trick or treater in 4 years! A little girl, probably the first time she had ever been out on Halloween. So gave her a big handful of candy (I always buy candy as if we're going to get a hundred kids... that means there's more for me!).

I'm avoiding that candy like the plague. I'm in my 40s and I don't need the stuff - and if it's all my kid will eat then it's GOT to go too.

Today is going to be spent raking leaves and taking down all the fake cobwebs and tombstones. I guess I should start hanging Christmas lights, huh?

Lets face it, Monday Halloweens stink. Kinda quiet here. Only about 20-25 kids. Over early too. By the time it cycles back to weekends both my kids will be in college.

It was pretty slim last night all around, didn't help the Vike's were playing (poorly).

Most of the candy went along with my wife to her work, let them get fat. The kids will get treats for the rest of the week or so, then it's all gone from the house either to her work or in the trash.

Any unopened bags of candy go into the Boy Scouts food drive bag next Saturday.

We of the odd sort who don't want any part of Halloween.
Last year year, we got together with friends and (1) our child and others lost all respect for "look before you cross", and (2) we had to deal with nightmares from older kids trying to jump out and scare the little ones. (3) then there is the candy in my house until January, and the nightly distribution.
We went out for an early dinner returning at 530.
Not a single visitor at our door. We live in a hood of one acre wooded lots. Houses not on the street, more like on the back part of the acre.
