    Yeah your little guy definitely makes the cut. He's practically a grown man.

    TMI ALERT

    When I was 16 I might've been pushing it a bit, but I went around door-to-door getting a ton of candy then hooked up with my riff-raff friends where we snuck a 12-pack into the woods.

    We didn't get too far with that before the cops arrived to make us pour it all out. Thankfully that was the worst of the trouble, and they didn't make a bigger deal of it.

    The real kicker to the whole story was that my last minute costume that night was my sister's Catholic school girl uniform with made-up face and a wig, and the smirks and giggles that the police were fighting back while addressing us.

    For the record I do not have drag queen tendencies, but no doubt I still get a kick out of playing crazy dress up, and sometimes I don't have to wait for Halloween to do it. Sometimes it can be a real hoot to pull a stunt when nobody expects it.

    Agreed, also when we were kids they never moved it. Rain,shine, or snow. I don’t really care either way though.

    Iíve def taken my kid when he couldnít/didnít eat candy and itís for the fun and experience, not for the free candy. I can buy a bag of Reeseís instead of getting random crap I donít really want.

    I remember running around the neighborhood with my starter jacket over my costume.

    Yep. Last year he could some of it, but he still can't eat stuff like gum and the hard candy. We took him around then so he would get used to it.

    Took him at a campground a few weekends back and he was sprinting bucket in hand from one campsite to the next saying whatever his version of trick or treat is.

    Proud parent moment: Kid said thank you to every single person without being prompted once.

    If they dress up (not just put on a football jersey and jeans) they have earned candy.

    They don't come around for the candy, they come around to showcase their little ones. Mentioned to a neighbor that we could have a few treaters tonight since one family on the street had twins last year and 3 more become recent grandparents. I'm cool with that!

    I may have to re-evaluate how many fried eggs to prepare.
