We had a similar problem, CruiseDad. The church up the street from us had Trunk or Treat Oct. 31 at 5, so I figured that would be when the children would come around. Guess I was wrong, I had my lights on until 7:30pm and no one came by. I had heard the dogs barking on the 30th, so I guess that was when they came. I didn't turn them on that night because I was trying to get my normal Sunday chores finished early.
I really missed seeing the little ones, some of them are so darn cute. The teenagers, some are cute, but most are just rude.
