Halloween 2012 Comes And Ghosts

Vicki and I got in the Halloween mood tonight by watching the season premiere of The Walking Dead (recorded a couple weeks ago, but we're behind in our show-watching thanks to the baseball playoffs).  I think it was an excellent choice, as Vicki was visibly disgusted by one scene near the end.

As far as trick-or-treaters go, I had predicted 11 and Vicki had gone with 16.  She won, by a hair, because we got 14.  That's down a bit, but close to the usual fare:

2012: 14
2011: 15
2010: 18
2009: 19
2008: 19
2007: 18
2006: 12

Looking at those results, you might wonder why I went so low with my estimate this year (lower than we've gotten over the past 6 years).  Well, I figured the rain we were getting would keep the kids away.  And in fact, we only got 4 groups this year (2, 2, 8, 2), which I imagine is the smallest turnout in that sense.  But that one gaggle of 8 kids put us over, and so I came in low.
