This year’s Jack O’ Lanterns ready to go.
Excited children were up early playing with their pumpkins.
Leo needed to add an Assassin’s Creed pumpkin to the mix.
Mummy hotdogs are a tradition.
Mike couldn’t wait to get into the candy.
Love was so excited to go Trick or Treating.
I couldn’t get either of their attention.
My best friend and sweetheart neighbor took this crew out Trick or Treating so I could hand out candy.
They don’t stand still. They won’t all look at the same time. Love had better things to do. Jimmy had been determined to do this thing on his own. SJ was ecstatic that he finally got to use his sword. Eddie just wanted to assassinate someone with his tomahawk. If you look closely, both Lu and her best friend have utensils sticking out of their faces with blood dripping down. Marie was cooperating and listening to whatever secret her best friend was telling her. And my sweetheart neighbor keeps coming back for more. Leo and Mike were missing from the picture because they are far to mature to join in with this crowd. (Note: they are not too mature to skip out on trick or treating.)
My post. For an hour on Halloween our sub comes alive. The streets line with Trick or Treaters of all ages. That big bag was full of candy. I went through all of it and had to go for my reserves. I probably handed out over 1,000 pieces of candy.
Love was one happy little girl with her candy bucket. (Mr. M was setting up the bounce house in the background.)
The only point in the day that I got Jimmy to stay still long enough to get an OK picture.
The bounce house overflowing with little ones. Adults were just trying to stay warm.
The Trade and Tax Time. Kids go through their stash, trade and hoard, while adults collect a few of their favorites from each participant.
As the night winds down, my middles watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” while I cuddle with my Princess. Another Halloween come and gone. Hope yours was a happy one.
