TRICK OR TREAT....

As is our tradition, my brother came to take the kids out trick or treating. We managed to laugh down super as we watched the kids in super hyper mode try to sit at the table. Costumes were donned and Daniel left with Hud and his friend before the camera came out. He went as a Ring Wrathe(sp?) from the Lord of the Rings. Claire went as a green faced witch and Sam of course was Bat Man. Craig went as himself... I enjoyed hanging out on the front porch with my tea, watching all of the activity on the road. So many costumes, so many kids(about 200), so many big kids who we made sing. They actually did it and seemed to enjoy it as much as we did hearing them. Then of course began the sorting and trading of treats, and even a little sharing with us as well. Sam and Claire were thrilled to receive new toothbrushes.... Over again for another year, the decorations come down today and soon it will be time to start for the next season...

I used to love those houses that made us sing for our candy when we were kids. I have not found one since our kids have been born though. You must have had so much fun!

Aw, too bad there's not a photo of Daniel. I love the other ones, though. Great costumes! (Did you not take a photo of your pumpkin?)

Daniel, Sam and Claire looked so good last night! I know, 200 kids and I heard the teenagers singing over at your place. Great idea! Oh, and your brother is quite the looker BTW!

Karen, we didn't bother with pumpkins this year....lazy I guess, that and I honestly didn't even think about it 'til the day before...

Gald the kids had a great night! I can't imagine 200 kids!!! Sounds like a great place to trick-or-treat.
