This was our first Halloween in the house so we were not sure whether to expect kids at the door or not. We thought it better to be prepared though and so the manservant bought candy which he wished he had been given when he was a kid.
It took about 20 knocks at the door for the candy to be all gone. The eldest kids we got were about 10 and the youngest looked about 3 years old and managed to fall off our "stoop" into my azaleas. Poor little guy – he did bounce back up pretty quickly when the candy came out though.
Quite early in the evening there was a group of 4 and one child hung back as the others reached forward for their treat. The manservant asked him: "what about you?"
I laughed as the boy replied: I'm full !!
I thought kids just took candy anyway!
