Halloween Night

The eleventh hour



We had quite the Halloween haunt with pint sized witches, vampires and ninjas topping the evening off with a grand total of 130 treaters! The action usually begins around 5pm. So, we were a little nervous to find the streets and sidewalks were emmmpty at that time. Since there wasn't a ghost or witch in site, we decided to sit down for a quick dinner. You guessed it. The minute we sat down to eat, the doorbell rang, and so it began. The winner of best costume was a young gentleman dressed up as a magnet covered in baby chicks. He was so funny as he proudly announced his title The CHICK MAGNET. As I was passing out the goodie bags, an unexpected visitor appeared from the crowd, a chihuahua dressed up as a bumblebee. I squealed with delight. She was Bow-WOW Bootiful! I wish I could have gotten pictures of these treaters, but there was something eerie possessing our camera last night. Unexplainable phantoms kept appearing in our pictures. What's interesting is, as we prepared for the nights festivities the camera operated without a hitch. Then it became a ghostly turn of events. Take a look.





The castle and sweet treats are prepared.

magical







Here's another hint for my fall tutorial.
A sugar (ice cream) cone.
Stay tuned.

Okay back about the circus peanuts...
I think they area bit like the bannas we get over here,
And if you are using sugared cones my guess is marshmallow cones...You know for kids parties type of food.
Hmmm Can you believe how much it has got me thinking..You would think I had too much time on my hands to spare,eh?

Wow Sara what a fun time you had. I haven't seen that many kids since mine were young. Most people I've talked to had none or very few trick or treaters this year. I can hardly wait for your tutorial...it looks intriguing.

And I'm not too sure I'd like liver and mayo either. I think we should both pass on the little treat!!

WOW we only had 23 treaters and that was a lot for us.

Oooh that little dressed up Chihuahua is irresistable. We have a little Princess Chi ourselves. Her name is Coco Chanel. The name fits her perfectly! My 10 year old son wants to trick or treat at your house next year. I do too!
