    What were your favorite Halloween candies to receive?  M&M's, Twix Least favorite? Pennies, SweetTarts

    How much candy did you used to score on Halloween? The best year, 1.5 pillowcases full.  I ran from house to house for about 2 hours straight - dedicated to the cause

    How much did you used to eat Halloween night? I'd snack through a ton - about as much as I could until I started feeling funny - haha!

    Did your parents inspect your 'treasure'? Strangely, no. 

    What was your favorite costume? I was Scarlett O'Hara one year, and had the prettiest dress and hairdo.

    And now...

    How much candy did you buy to give out this year, and how much do you have left over? We bought 9 bags, and have about 1/2 left.  This will NOT be good for my diet!

    Did you have nice TOT'ers this year? Yeah, for the most part they were cute and had manners.  There were a few who trampled our lawn (and the parents didn't say anything).  One didn't like the candy we gave him.  But most said "ToT" and "Thank You" which was nice.  =)  I think next year, we'll buy all of the normal good candy, and one bag of stupid candy, and if the kid tramples our yard, is too old to ToT, or doesn't show manners, they'll get the junk candy - hehe!

    Did you dress up this year?  If so, what were you? Nope, we were party poopers.  But I want to get masks or something simple to have for handing out candy next year.

    What were your favorite Halloween candies to receive?  Least favorite? Favorite - most chocolates, Least Fav - anything "sugary" because they all have corn syrup & I couldn't eat it b/c of my corn allergy (SMS & Evans - I feel some of your pain with your girls allergies!!)

    What were your favorite Halloween candies to receive?  Least favorite?

    I loved all the sugary candy...sweet and sour stuff and certain chocolate!!

    How much candy did you used to score on Halloween?

    prolly anywhere from 2 pumpkins full to 3/4 of a pillow case full (we used to go afterschool to a shopping center to trick or treat and then around the neighborhood that nite!

    How much did you used to eat Halloween night?

    depended on how old I was...I ate more as I got older.

    Did your parents inspect your 'treasure'?

    when I was younger then did but as I got older they would make us dump it on the table split it into 2 piles and check the candy...(we put half the candy in the freezer so it would last longer and after we finished the 1st bag we got the 2nd out of the freezer!!-sometimes the 2nd bag didnt come out till after xmas because of all the extra xmas treats--i def. plan to do the same with my kids!

    What was your favorite costume?

    I had a few costumes I really liked...I was a Skittle with 2 friends(each of us was a different color) and then one year I was a bunch of grapes!

    And now...

    How much candy did you buy to give out this year, and how much do you have left over?

    we weren't home so we didnt had out candy...we took Jack to my parents and around their street and then took jack out with my stepson and his sister so we didnt get home till late!

    Did you have nice TOT'ers this year?
