A New Trick for Treats
I'm not a big fan of Halloween...I think I used to be, but not so much any more. I think I just don't really care for the "barely-there" girls' costumes that are popular or the blood and gore boys' costumes. What ever happened to Ragedy Ann and Andy costumes or a simple sheet over the head??
Millie really didn't know what to think of the gruff sounding man with the long black hair and the tattoos all up and down his arms that was in our room handing out candy. She just stood wide-eyed for a while as the rest of the kids laughed hysterically!
It's okay Millie...he's no stranger! :)
The concession seller.
Getting ready for the last stops of the evening...upstairs!
No one answered this door, but he did jump out of the closet. Like Joe's broken zipper??
The "Candy Thief" handing out his loot.
The Motley Crew...who would've guessed we trick-or-treated in a five minute, 800 square feet span??
We retreated to the family room for a movie, induced a sugar coma while watching and Tim and I were thanked for the evening with such comments as "This was the best Halloween EVER!" Ha! Hopefully worth a repeat at some point!!
We carved pumpkins over the weekend. As the kids have gotten older, this has turned into one of those things that never quite goes in real life the same way it does in my head...it was fast, messy and not at all as artistic as I imagined. Everyone of course insisted on carving their own...I got to carve some letters in the back of Ben and Joe's pumpkins, but that was the limit of my influence.
I did get to use my creative hand in cookie-making though.
inspiration cookies, but none the less, very cute! I've been in need of distractions this week, and celebrating All Saints Day and Halloween was just right!
