Snap...It's Halloween '08 Recap

Here in the Chicagoland area we had unusually warm weather for the end of October; mid 70’s and sunny skies. I knew it was going to be nice out (which means tons of Trick-or-Treaters), so I asked my mom and dad to come to my house before I got home to answer the door (i.e. ward off any egg/T.P. attacks). The ten bags of candy I bought went. Went as in gone, empty bowl, no candy being brought in to the office; went. Which is fine. My thighs and ass thanked me (though they love the Snickers and Twix bars as much as my tum-tum, the thought of not being chafed while squeezing into a pair of jeans was appreciated).

That being said, this is who was answering my door:



Yeah, I did get my thick hair from my dad, but obviously this isn’t his hair. He had fun…my mom, well, she just rolled her eyes. Boys will be boys.

Here’s a group shot of my grandson in his Darth Vader costume and children of my son’s friend.



My granddaughter was plum tuckered out.



Now, I don’t normally take pictures of kids coming to my door. Not only would that make their parents uncomfortable, but what would I really do with the pictures? I did, however, have to take a pic of this one. He’s probably a little to old to be begging for candy, but damn it was a great costume!



And because he posed for me, I gave him an extra bag of M&M’s…then he gave me a packet of peanuts and waved both arms towards the front door as he exited and said “Buh Bye.”



Before my daughter and son-in-law left for their party, they grudgingly lovingly cooperated with me and my blogginess.



Yeah, my favorite son-in-law was the caveman from the Geico commercials, and a damn good one.





My daughter had a kick-ass costume also. She was thinking about changing it because none of her friends knew who she was supposed to be, but she decided to go for it. For extra credit points, can you guess who she is?





So how was your All Hallow’s Eve?

P.S. The first person that comments with the correct answer as to who my daughter was wins a $25.00 Target Gift Card!!! (Note: friends and family are disqualified…that means you, BFF).

Update 11/04/08 8:00 p.m. No one guessed so the gift card is up for grabs with the next post.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Oh, I have no clue who she is dressed as. ARGH! But, awesome pictures! And your dad is a hoot!

Megan said...

Can we have multiple guesses? My only guess so far is Angela from the office..she's crazy(sword), has blonde hair, and the crazy eyebrow! See this for an example: http://images-cdn01.associatedcontent.com/image/A9535/95353/300_95353.jpg

I am thinking she looks a lot like Anna Nicole Smith. Great costumes, especially the stewardess. He deserved some kind of award.

Peace - D

So I was trying to be really sneaky! Because I am such a good blogger friend I remembered a post you had about a myspace you made up..so I tracked that down and found your daughters myspace..tried to entice her to tell me what her costume was, but you raised her right!! She wouldn't tell me! ;) Can't wait to hear what it is!!

I have no idea who your daughter is. BUT it's great that your family got so into Halloween. Looks like everyone had fun. I Love the costume of the dude in the blue. Nice!

She looks like Archie Bunker's daughter from All in the Family - Sally Struthers - but I'll be damned if I can remember the character name.

LceeL said...

Gloria? Was that her name?

Favorite Son-n-Law said...

you put the wrong video on, I think the other one was better....

Lola said...

Umm, Kelly Osbourne? My husband said Gloria, just like Lou did.

Great costumes all around, and your parents are so damn cute!

Glamorous Life of a House Wife said...

Courtney Love?

Lisa J said...

Oh those are great pictures. We didn't even have ONE trick or treater. Oh well. We do live in the country with a very long driveway and no grand kids near by. So what do I expect??? I wanted kids to come by anyway!

I can't get over that rather buxom flight attendant. Awesome!
