Haaaaappy Halloween!

Here are a couple of pics from tonight, I'll get more of our full decorations later.

This year: I was a chef and Pippin spent the evening in a pot as my lobster, waiting to be cooked.













Tonight we had 308 trick or treaters before we ran out of candy (we had around 15-17 bags) around 8:45 pm. Literally two SUV loads were pulling up as we RAN inside to hide. Next year we'll just have to buy more candy because there were still tons of kids out trick or treating.









One sleepy lobster......(he really is under the costume). He doesn't mind wearing outfits because it always means there will be fun to be had... (And yes, I'm wearing flip flops. It was really warm tonight).













Friends S & L came over to help with the candy madness. He was a goth vampire "teen" and some kid asked if he was a mime, so he mimed it up for the picture. There were many, many hilarious comments from kids tonight that I'll have to share tomorrow. You just never know what you're going to hear in our neighborhood.......like the kid who asked me if Pippin was a chihuahua.









Fun times.......308 kids, $70 worth of candy, 3 hours of constant candy distribution, children actually believing I am going to cook Pippin for dinner: Priceless. And this year Brent only made 3 kids cry with his outfit!

308 kids?! That's insane. We only had 8 show up at our door and they were our own four boys...twice! Nice lobster Rae.

Too fun! We don't have many trick or treaters on our street so after I went for a run, we went for a drink!!

Priceless costume! We had a lot of candy hearing the new house would be swamped, but not so much...
