Older crowd

Our neighborhood is a mix of kids but this year we saw a lot of older kids (junior high and high school) for trick-or-treat.
Some of the costumes were clever, like our next door neighbor who dressed as one of the characters from I Spy, the comic from the Mad Magazine. Or there were a couple guys dressed as hockey referees, which was fitting since C wore a hockey jersey and had his broken goalie stick with him (a souvenir from a Carolina Hurricanes practice.)
But there were some that were just scary or something lame they threw together.
One note: we saw a lot of cross dressing boys (one as Miss America and another a bride and a couple others as girls at a sleep-over.)
So a lot of the older crowd. We gave them candy; one piece each. But it would have been nice to see more of the younger crowd.
The neighbor-boy across the street dressed up as Elmo. So it was cute to hear M say "Hi, Elmo" as he walked up the driveway.
