Happy Halloween 2009...

We were pretty slim on trick or treaters as usual...
One neighbor kittycat (I loved the tail)...
.
and then like 45 kids from all the family members of one of our other neighbors that all go out together as a group... that was crazy, I couldn't even get pictures. Our neighbor was apologizing to me the whole time the line of kids was coming through "I am so sorry, I told my husband it would be too overwhelming"... ha ha it was so cute! We loved getting that many kids.
.
Then the teenager thought it would be funny to put on a mask....

Hide in the closet by the door...

and as I was passing out candy... peak out from behind me like this...


and see what they do... ?
.
He waited in the closet for a while, it was nice and quiet, no teenager, no trick or treaters!
.
Then he gave up and went to a friends party for the night.
.
After he left, we got one more surprise!
A friend stopped by in the neighborhood... great make up!!!
Jim made me get a secret stash of Giant candy in addition to the regular candy to hand out.
So I was really glad I had it for those special kids that thought about us this year!
.
Of course our dogs hate Halloween, but I love it when the kids come over to show us their costumes. Especially since that season of that stressful, sugar overloaded, costume fretting as parents has passed at our house. It's bittersweet I would say!!

I didn't get any trick or treaters... I was so disappointed. It was a beautiful night with a full moon and not too cold. Luckily I had TorT with Brooklynn on Friday. All was not lost.

I am surprised you don't get a massive amount of kids. My mom doesn't live far from you and she thought she would be hit hard but only went through 1 bag of candy.
