Halloween was a big success. We got the most candy we have ever gotten before. It filled up 5 (large) containers and that's what I love about living in New York. First all 5 of the Blair kids took on the 22 houses of Winslow Circle (our street) at 5:30. It was still bright out so that meant we would be trick or treating for a while. We headed to the Sibbets (family friends) who were with a large group of kids at 6:00. They live on the best trick or treating street ever! Soon we had gone to about 50 houses at only 6:30! Olive ,my sister was very pleased because about every 2nd grader was there. I even ran into my 5th grade friends routes. My bag had a huge rip down the side so it was hard to carry. Before we went trick or treating I just grabbed the largest bag I could find .Not one of those pumpkin bowl things that only hold 50 pieces.Finally at 8:30 we headed home. Betty had stayed home when we finished Winslow Circle but Oscar came along. Well that was the night.
