Happy Halloween!


We took the kids out yesterday for trick or treating.  Things are different here, and from when I was a kid.  Back then we could stay out as long as neighbors had their lights on.  Now-a-days, they want trick or treating done on the weekend so it doesn’t interfere with school or something, and during the day so it doesn’t interfere with … night, or something.  I don’t know.  All I do know is that the city ordinances around in many of the local little townships have hours that trick or treating is permitted.  So that’s when we go. 

This year the munchkins decided to be Mario and Batgirl.  Smile  We took them to the same neighborhood we’ve taken them to for the past few years, since there’s no trick or treating around the complex here.  It’s a nice neighborhood and many of the people put up some great decorations.  A few times, when the folks at the door saw me waiting on the sidewalk for my kids, would hand the kids some extra candy and say, “give this to your mom!”  How nice is that?  That’s the kind of neighborhood it is.  Some of them even dress up to pass out candy.  The best costume I saw was on a man wearing a t-shirt that had “COSTUME” printed on it.  I thought of WIGSF when I saw that one.  Smile

All in all it was a decent Halloween.  The kids got about half a “bucket” each of candy – good stuff too.  We did run into one dentist – he was funny.  Instead of handing out toothbrushes like the one last year, this one put in fake rotted teeth and reminded kids to brush and floss so they wouldn’t have a smile like his.  I liked his approach.  Open-mouthed smile 

Here are my little heroes.  Smile


Have a safe and happy Halloween!

    Love the costumes! What a couple cuties the darclings are!

    The dentists approach is funny, I like it!

    We had about 23 kids… er, teenagers. I don’t care if teenagers go out (I did until I was 19), but a large group of them showed up at the end of the night, and they didn’t even dress up, unless Justin Beiber/Hipster counts as a costume?

    I was trying to think of something fun for us to wear this year while we took our lobster around to see people, and we resulted in wearing a Sonic the Hedgehog hat, and a Maxwell from Scribblenauts hat.

    Aw, thank you sweetie. 🙂

    We saw quite a few teens when we were out too.

    That little lobster sure was cute. 🙂
