I am curious if you close earlier on Halloween. I ask my parents to pick up no later than 5.. Only one had a problem with that but she always has a problem with something.
I gave all the parents over a month's notice. I want the kids gone by 5 so we can go to my brother's house for dinner, something I have been doing since his own children were toddlers ( kids are now 21,and 19). We will trick or treat on his street and then come home in time for a 8pm bedtime.

Luckily my brother only lives 3 blocks away.I am looking forward to taking my 14 month old out to a few houses even if I do have to eat her candy lol ( we bought her some new little people to trade in the candy for)
