Tricks and Treats (and lots of sweets)

As usual, the act of trick-or-treating takes far less time than figuring out what to DRESS UP as!! This is an art, I do realize, so I should not rush it. This is precisely why we start talking about Halloween costumes a year in advance!!! This year after perusing several (million) stores, Julian FINALLY settled on being a vampire. Thank goodness for our dress up bin! All we needed was a cape! Janey is still a Princess girl to the core, and after being Aurora last year, she decided on Belle for this year. A special Halloween thanks goes out to her teacher for setting the rule 'NO high heels for Trick-or-Treating'!
Teddy had a football game Halloween afternoon (WHO is responsible for such horror?!?) . Not only a football game, but one that would put Franklin in the playoffs if they won. A hefty dose of Mom guilt for not being at this game!! This was actually the only time I saw him until after the Halloween fun was over. I STILL do not know if he dressed up or not. Let's just say he was a football player this year!
In spite of the frigid temps and arctic wind the week before, Halloween was warm. We enjoyed some football, and multi-tasked by getting Julian dressed and hair- sprayed at the game!! We got some crazy looks, but not as many as the people who brought their cat to football on a leash!! After Julian was made up to be a great vampire, Janey decide SHE too wanted vampire makeup and blood too! Very nice for Princess Belle! We bribed her with blush, eyeshadow, and lipstick and after she was...well.... colorful!
We met up with some dead folks and beasts and headed off for some treats. Tucker actually asked me "How come Chloe didn't get to go Trick-or-Treating with Lily and you guys ?" Uh, hillbilly boy, WHO do you think the dead gal in purple is?????
Along the way we met some crazy hillbillies! (Otherwise known as Tucker and Zach).A good day indeed! And enough candy to cause severe sugar shock.Slash is just mad he didn't get to go to the football game OR dress up!!!
