Even though Halloween fell on a Saturday this year, the clouds decided to run away and we had an amazing Saturday to frolick around and play. Actually, in the early morning, I nursed a bit of a hangover until I met up with my sister for a much, much needed pedicure and on our way back, we picked up Fred's Philly Cheesesteak and parked ourselves on the couch to watch Tech perform how they SHOULD'VE performed the week before. May fault, I wasn't wearing the uniform and I didn't have Fred's. I won't make that mistake again.
Anyway, aftewards, we sat down and FINALLY carved our pumpkins. Here's Don's Death Star. I thought it was pretty darn nifty!
By the time we were finished with that, we threw some more decorations outside, put the candles in the pumpkins, dressed Mari, loaded up glasses of wine for those who wanted a spooky libation, and we all hit the street in search of treats. Here's Mari at the first house. She is beyond skeptical about all of this. Curious, yes, but still hesitant. her poor wings kept flopping over and they wouldn't stay put ever since she tried yanking them off the last time she wore them. Oh well. In case you couldn't figure it out, she's a fairy. (Don't you love the stripes?!)
I love how she looks back like, um...are you sure? She's trick-or-treating with her cousins. Z is a Southern Belle and C is the Grim Reaper. Oh, and I forgot to say that Mari's treat bag blinked with tiny LED lights. So cute!
All night, Z and C were both very protective of Mari, even insisting that she ring the doorbell, even when she couldn't reach it. After the 2nd house, Mari had the hang of it and she was running from house to house. She didn't hesitate to sign thank you and she'd holler Bye over her shoulder and blow kisses. Loved it! I caught Z in a sole light on a neighbor's porch. They weren't there, but the single light was too good to pass up!
At the end of the night, we allowed her 1 piece of candy. I'm fairly certain she snuck in two, but that's not too bad. She, like me, enjoyed sorting the candy by the different types. We discovered that she'd chosen far more Reese's Peanut Butter cupss than anything else. I think they were easiest for her to grab.
Enjoying her pretty big lolli. Here we are together. I'm a gypsy.
Here's we all are together: Mari Fairy, Mommy Gypsy, Daddy College Student, and Guapo Nudist (mostly).
Hope you all enjoyed your Halloween!
