Halloween 2008

October 31, 2008

6:55 p.m.
We finally had our first trick-or-treaters, later than in the past ... a pirate and a devil, about 7 and 9 years old. They were polite little fellas, both saying thank you as they received treats.

The kids are late this year. We usually have our first little ones around 6:30. We will see what the rest of the night brings.

SWAC Daughter is here to help hand out candy and see the kids before heading out later to her own party with friends. By the time she leaves, however, we are usually finished with the door-to-door goblins.

7:30 p.m.
The sweet kids up the street stopped by ... a three-year-old ballerina, an eight-year-old fairy, a 10-year-old ballerina, and their nine-year-old brother who was a geologist. Polite kids ... and got to visit with their mom before they headed on up the street. They all said thank you ... treats for all!

8:00 p.m.
Two more from the neighborhood ... a seven-year-old pirate and a 10-year-old wizard. Neat costumes, polite kids who were with their grandmother who is our neighbor. She loved the wisteria across the porch with the tiny twinkly white lights ... said she had tried to grow some but had not been successful ... so we gave her several seed pods so she can try again. The kids thanked us as they headed out into the dark to continue their rounds.

It's Halloween 2008....

Not so many kids this year. I think the mall and assorted church "fall festivals" are offering an alternative. Too bad. Trick or treat memories will last. Fall festival memories, not so much.

I dressed as an Obama voter, you know, a zombie.....
Squidette dressed up as a ninja zombie or zombie ninja. We never could figure that out...

Mrs. Cargosquid was heard muttering, "Other daughters want to be princesses....My daughter wants to be...."

So, next year, I'll put her into a fairy princess costume and THEN turn her into a zombie....

We don't have many trick-or-treaters because we are rural ... the houses are far apart and it is dark so we have mostly kids only from our neighborhood.

I laughed out loud at your zombie references ... glad the Cargosquid family was able to enjoy Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by ... sending virtual candy corn your way. :)
