Happy (Belated) Halloween

We had an excellent time last night!!! We headed over to my mom's house where she has her annual Halloween party. She served chili and potato soup, hot dogs, apples and caramel dip, 3 different types of pies, 4 types of cookies, and tons of candy!

The boy and I ate as soon as we got there. Then around 6:15 my hubby, father-in-law, the boy, and I decided it was time to go trick or treating! We walked 4 blocks worth of houses till my son's bag was full a beautiful, delicious candy! ( I should have a pic of my son and I some time this week). The boy had so much fun running up the driveways and ringing doorbells (sometimes several times...heehee!). He was just too cute!

Btw, there was a house in the neighborhood was decorated big time! It had orange lights all over it and several inflated Halloween creatures, skulls, bones, and ghosts all in the yard. It also had a fog machine going...but I guess that the home owners spent all their money on the decorations since they were giving out Smarties! Smarties!!!

It's been so long that I've celebrated Halloween...sounds like you had a great evening. You probably needed a diversion, at least for the night.

These earth fetivals are curious.

You might like to know that there is a whole planet full of vamoires that dress up as humans once a year.

It is something to behold.

You don't like Smarties?

Haven't tried that Reese's thing before. I'm not a big candy-eater actually, but I'll try one of those just to vary the monotony of my day-to-day existence. *sigh* Sweet Reese's of blissful release, I come for thine existentialism.

We ran into a similarly decked out house during our travels, but thankfully, they didn't blow the whole bank on decorations and were giving out the good chocolate stuff!
