Spooky Times

Well, Halloween is almost over...I am the only one left up right now.  It was an interesting night getting the kids to bed...Michael we told he could stay up--he went to bed a little after 9 p.m.  Willow, we got her to bed at 9 p.m.  Then she woke up saying her white windbreaker was scaring her (she thought it was a ghost).

Chewy is upstairs saying his stomach hurts from candy snacking...and I am up not wanting to let go of Halloween.  (Geez, I remember when I used to stay up way late on Halloween and watch scary movies...now, I am going to bed around 11 p.m. and there are not that many scary movies on regular television)...

So, a wrap up of Halloween festivities...

On Saturday (before Sandy disrupted everything around here), we went to the Halloween celebration at the zoo...

Michael scared a lot of little kids with his costume--especially since he did it very straight and would not get out of character--even when I insisted he show the little boy/girl that he was just a teenager under that mask...

There was a new play area at the zoo...Willow LOVED it.

Looking at the jack o'laterns.

And then there was a scarecrow on stilts...who loved Willow's ruby slippers...

There were games to play...including throwing sticky spiders onto a web (she won a spider ring for that).


And then there was tonight.  Trick Or Treating!  We split up the kids--Michael wanted to be more independant (actually he originally wanted to go on his own--we decided he and dad could cover more ground on their own).

That was okay, cuz Willow and I had a GREAT time!  She was running, skipping and joyful to be Trick or Treating! This was the year she lasted a long time and enjoyed it so much!

Willow just before we went out.  The black residue on her check is from an earlier temporary tattoo of a bat.


Meanwhile, Michael is on the other end of the neighborhood, scaring up trouble--and candy...



First house!


I just like the red lighting...


At the end of the night--the Haul picture...

(psst...I think she got more candy than he did...)



Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween! Photobucket
