…I counted this year and we had eight-eight of them. Most of the candy I bought is gone, which is a good thing. I can’t tell you how many times I dipped into the ‘hidden’ stash last week.
I love seeing the costumes the kids/parents come up with. This year, however, was not the case. There are of course the little ones that look cute no matter what they’re wearing. One wee fellow had the most amazing bright blue eyes. He couldn’t decide which candy he wanted though. I’d hold out a piece and he’d smile but when I asked him if that was what he wanted, he’d shake his head ‘no’. After a few tries I just grabbed a big handful and put it in his pumpkin. His mother, who was waiting somewhat impatiently at the end of my driveway, sighed audibly with relief when I finally ended his indecision. Whatever lady, walk up to the door with your barely two year old child and help him then.
Anyway back to the costumes this year; they just weren’t that creative. In fact some of the older kids felt they didn’t even need to wear one. I know, I know. Many of you would probably say you wouldn’t give them any candy if they didn’t have a costume…but I had a shit ton to get rid of. Good candy (i.e. Reeses’, Butterfingers, Kit Kats, etc.) that I would otherwise end up eating.
There was only one group that I pulled my camera out for. It was a group of eight or nine boys all dressed as nuns. I only captured four of them though.
Here was last year’s favorite. He was a bit old to be Trick or Treating, but he did oblige me when I asked him to come in and pose.
For those of you who just recently met my Fraughter, here she is last year in all her glory as Hatchet Face, from the movie Cry-Baby.
Hope you all had a great All Hallows Eve!
