Halloween


It is a VERY big deal in our neighborhood. The big victorian houses on the main street go all out with decorations and the police block off the surrounding streets (ours included) and put up spot lights. We had hundreds of trick-or-treaters from 5:15 until we turned off our light at 9:30! We went through 600 pieces of candy and a few hundred packs of stickers. (D carved the pumpkins pictured above - he's so creative!)

Little S was a dinosaur. My mom's friend made the costume and let us borrow it. Little S wasn't set on being anything in particular - some days she said she wanted to be a bug, other days a bee, and on halloween she said pirate.



Costume party with her preschool class:
Our good friends stopped by with their kids during trick-or-treating. Chanel's girls and my friend Cass's boys were excited about handing out candy - and gave D and my little sis a break from the task. It was fun to have a house full of friends and a porch full of trick-or-treaters.

Best costume went to this trick-or-treater who took a rest on our front yard:
