Halloween Night

Lots of candy. Too much, in fact. I wish we could go for the walk dressed up in costumes, visit people, and not have to get all of the candy.

This is the down side to Halloween, of course. Dealing with junk food for weeks afterwards.

It’s amazing, too, how many people go all out for Halloween these days. Don’t ya think? I don’t remember people decorating their houses like crazy when we were kids.

Halloween 07 004

That’s the back of J going to a house with this odd grim reaper monstrosity out front. It moved and omitted scarrry sounds when you walked past.

Halloween 07 007

This house went ALL out. They enclosed their deck in black plastic and converted it into a small haunted house. J and R were not sure what to think. Their faces had the deer in the head lights look while we were inside.

Halloween 07 008

This is the same house as above. They made an old car up to look like a hearse and put it up on their lawn.

R went as Darth Vader and J, finally, went as a princess. Up to this point I’ve managed to sway her away from the princess costumes, but this year she was determined. So, we went all of the way. Did her hair and put some make-up on. She loved it.

J getting ready.

We took my friend’s son along with us, too, which was a lot of fun.

My parents had over 150 kids come to their door.

I hope you all had a good night!

PS  And yes, this is the first day of NaBloPoMo.  Hi all.  :mrgreen:

    Hah, I wonder why Robinella hasn’t commented yet tee hee. I find it quite amazing the extent people go to decorate for Halloween. Years ago when they put candy on sale the day after, we would by enough to last us until Christmas. Now they sell them all year, and don’t mark them down by half; well not the good ones like chocolate bars.

    Sometimes you have to just give into that princess thing so they can get it out of their system. This year I talked my Lil’ Princess into being a queen. Because, you know, queens are in charge.

    There is also an amazing house here, they start bulding the framework over the front garden a month before Halloween, it features on the news and people travel from all over to view it. Of course I forgot the camera.

    We went to some really cool places too. Sound and light effects…fog machines…

    We didn’t have a single trick or treater again at our house. The neighborhood we went to was just packed. Sometimes 15-20 kids at a house. Several houses told kids they were sorry they had no more candy. I felt sorry for the people living in that neighborhood!!

    Looks like you had a good Halloween. J looked very pretty in her princess dress up!
    It looks like people really do go all out sometimes. They don’t do that so much here but the cars that were doing trick or trunk with us some did go all out
