Trick or Treating


Cue the Halloween music..............

We had a fun time last night with all the trick or treaters.  It started off with my son, Will, designing his pumpkin to be carved.



Then, his dad did the difficult task of carving this masterpiece.


We placed it on the porch and lit a candle inside it.


I love how it turned out!  Will wanted it to have a scar over one eye.  So, that's what that little zig zag design is.

I turned on the porch lights and the other electric pumpkins to welcome the trick or treaters.




Then, Will got dressed in his very scary costume!


This was his choice!  Eek!!

Even our dog, Max, got in on the action.


I tried my to get a decent picture of him, but to no avail.  He kept running around from all the excitement, so this is about as good as I could get.  If you can't tell, he's wearing a tutu type collar with skulls on it.  Ha! He actually was well behaved once the trick or treaters started coming to the door.  He would follow me to the door and check out everyone.  It was so cute.

Here is Will and his dad about to go trick or treating.  They met up with some other neighbors as they walked the neighborhood. 


Look at all the candy he collected when he was done!


Now, what to do with all of my left over candy from last night.  I always seem to buy too much. 

Hopefully, none of you have a stomach ache from eating too much candy yesterday.  I need to go on a walk now.  Ha!

Will was very scary looking. The pumpkin looked great. Max is too funny with his costume on.

Love Will's pumpkin! His costume is wonderful too!

No candy here. We went to our daughter's, which is always our "halloween base". All our kids trick or treat in her neighborhood. J manned the door, while our oldest granddaughter, daughters and one son in law took the kids around. The 2 other sons in law had to work late and missed out on the fun. Oldest daughter kept us company. There didn't seem to be as many "visitors" this year. No candy left over there, though.

Hi, this is my first visit here and I must say, your porch is decorated perfectly. Your son's costume is indeed scarey and the dog's is cute.
