We kicked off our scarrrrry Halloween weekend with parties at school on Friday. After months of telling people that I intended to be Strawberry Shortcake for Halloween, I finally got my chance! Arydnn’s costume was chosen for her by mommy & daddy… she was a duck… the stinkin’ cutest one I’ve ever seen! Our school parties were fun. You’ll see a few photos of our classes. Notice that there were THREE Shortcakes in my class this year… and I thought that I was being original!?
On Halloween night, we lit our jack-o-lanterns on the front porch & prepared for the usual mass of trick-or-treaters. Our whole fam came over… even Uncle Mike, who was in town for the festivities. As we started to hand out goodies, we realized pretty quickly that our enormous basket of 1000 pieces of candy was not going to make it through the night. We all sat out on the front porch & handed out candy together. We were having so much fun, we decided that we’d skip trick-or-treating ourselves & stick to handing out candy. There were HUNDREDS & HUNDREDS of goblins crawling our block. We saw lots of fun costumes & kiddos…. and as suspected, we ran out of candy around 8.30pm. We did decide to walk next door to the Franks’ house, just to get the trick-or-treat experience.; Sweet Mr. & Mrs. Frank were happy to oblige us.
Our Halloween was a ton of fun this year. Hope yours was, too.
