This year we trick or treated in our new neighborhood. It was a totally different Halloween for us. In our old neighborhood, located on a very very steep hill, we got very few trick or treaters. We could leave a bowl out with a sign reading, “take a couple” and it would still be there in the morning. Ok, to jump to new neighborhood in different town. We had truckloads of Trick or Treaters, they just kept coming. We had some smoking teenagers (and that’s not a costume idea) daring us not to give them candy and a grown woman happily thrusting her big a** pillowcase at me (no child in sight)- o k a y, but most were decked out kiddos thrilled to be lugging their humongous bags of candy up and down the street.
The “sparkly dancing shoes” of my little skeleton.
My wee one in a hand me down costume my husband and I freezer paper stenciled back when we had free time.
We ended up not waiting until nightfall.
Potentially my favorite image of the night, boo for blur. Not about to ask this unknown fella for a second shot, in fact I was rather pleased that I summoned the guts to do it a first time.
High five from the netherworld.
These are from my school’s Halloween celebration.
Good old-fashioned balloon shaving fun.
Someone ate the D.
Something tells me that toothpaste might still have been hanging out in the prize bucket at the end of the festival.
And here is my old Alphabet Sunday friend (we have to start something up again Lauren!) showing us all how Halloween can be HEALTHY!!! Orange Carrots for all my friends!
Now on to Thanksgiving, ever marching forward…
