Another Halloween, come and gone. I can't believe it.
We had a fabulous day today. It started off with a parade at Carson's school.
Here's Carson...well I think it's him. He was the only venom spiderman that waved at me so I'm pretty sure it was him.
A couple costumes I saw and liked at the parade: Dirty Laundry and toilet bowl.
Fern drove to Carson's parade with this Halloween butler in her passenger seat. Very entertaining! After Parker sat in her nice car, with this crazy passenger, and after we were walking home, he said "Hey mom, guess what? Do you know what is SO COOL about Fern's car????" I said "what?" He replied "Fern's car has a steering wheel!" Yep, pretty cool.
You know it's bad when you've already had your 'sugar-high' for the day and now you are crashing...at 11am.
Cameron didn't go trick-or-treating but I had him in his bat costume for as much of the day as he could stand.
Sam dressed up as Robert Smith from The Cure. By this time his makeup had worn off (kinda) but he still looks good!
So, I'm on a mission to become the most favored house on the block for the treats I pass out. Check it out...60 full size candy bars! I also bought crappy cheap candy that I gave to teenagers. Little trick I learned from Fern!
The trio: Looks like Parker has a pumpkin for a head.
Course, bats are much more comfortable hanging upside down!
While the older kids went trick-or-treating, Cameron hung out on the lawn with his buddy, Logan. Cameron tried sharing his candy and Logan the turtle was very impressed with his sharing skillz at such a young age.
And a couple of dads who are young at heart!
Life is good.
After 9pm, my neighbor was chasing the teenagers up and down the street with a chainsaw. Pretty effective, I haven't had any late night doorbells 'dings' from older hooligans.
Now, I'm REALLY hoping trouble makers steal my pumpkins off my lawn so I don't have to dispose of them myself...A girl can dream....
