Happy Halloween, kiddos! Answered

Picture of

I woke up at 4:30. I was too excited to sleep. Halloween is my Christmas. :P So what's everyone doing this weekend? Anything fun? What are you dressing up as? I'm going to a couple of parties and a Bad Movie Night, featuring Death Bed: The Bed That Eats People and Leprechaun 4. :D Plus, I get to dress up at work all day!

Hallowe'en hasn't kicked off here yet - it's only lunchtime. The boy's have carved their own pumpkins, though, and have bought it sweeties for the few trick-or-treaters we tend to get. That wig really suits you, by the way.

Why, thank you, Kiteman!

I have to tell you - Kiteman - that I am very flattered.

If someone else takes credit now I really can't do anything about it. :D

Oh, and you could at least have used a fresh one... do they do a version of Fabreze to use of worked steel?

The one on the left is R2D2, by #2 son. On the right, a traditional model by #1 son. Both hollowed and carved by the boys themselves.

Those are great! They should consider doing this for a living...... I love the R2D2 one the most, but the other one looks better....I am torn...

Oh, those are really good! I really wanted to carve pumpkins this year, but the end of the month was just too busy!

Kiteman (author)jessyratfink2008-10-31

They're not huge, and all I had to do was wipe the floor afterwards, so (although the boys spent about an hour and a half drawing and carving) it was really only ten minutes out of my day.

Pretty good turnout tonight - must be because it's Friday, and having the pumpkins on the doorstep will have helped as well. Quite a range of costumes, from simple bought masks to full zombie make-ups. Nice to see every single visitor so far has been very polite, and the small ones all had grown-ups with them. In fact, one group of three kids had about ten adults with them, all in costume.

The age thing maybe..... But more than that, (after I confessed an undying attraction to Betty Page) I think Mrs. Skunkbait might not take it well. This old wolf has been pretty well turned into a lap-dog:-(

I don't think I'll have any trick or treaters, sadly. Apartment and all that. :P I haven't had any since I've lived in Louisville.

The first year in our current house, we hung up a bunch of ghosts and got GOOD candy. NO ONE showed up (flag lot, no sidewalks, snooty neighborhood full of old folks, etc. Sigh.) So now we go back to our old house (where my brother in law is now living) and trick-or-treat in their neighborhood. LOTS of kids there (IIRC, the first year we lived there we ran out of candy and started handing out things like breakfast bars, hot-chocolate mix, and so on...)

That's a shame. I love seeing the lil' kiddies scared stiff with fear. Although I had a shirt on in the PG13 hours of the afternoon. The scares got a bit more MA15+ after the sun went down though.
