Happy Halloween
« on: November 01, 2011, 05:41:48 AM »
Anyone see any good costumes?

We had a group of 5 teenage girls come by as Christmas Carolers.  They started singing "Carol of the Bells" as soon as my wife opened the door, and they were really good too.  Very clever :)

I worked all evening and came home after midnight. Though I often refer to my work as "every day is Halloween"...

No good ones for me.

I don't get many trick-or-treaters at my house even though I live in town.  I saw a few cute costumes but nothing that was very original.

Trick or Treating has been postponed until November 6th for us due to the power outages and trees down from the weekend snow storm.

Worked late and caught the tail end of the trick or treaters. My wife and daughter were handing out candy. I missed most of the action this year.

Didn't see many good costumes this year.

My wife made a parrot costume for our 11 month old and we dressed up as pirates. Another couple from the mothers group my wife goes to dressed themselves as banana plants and the baby as a monkey.

Next year we are thinking of dressing as a chicken adn rooster with the kid as an egg.

We had 3 trick or treaters last night, a new record.  Of course we had to call their parents and invite them. ::)

I had Trick'or'Treat duty last night and was actually kinda amazed, in a good way at that.  Just about every kid, no matter the age, was more polite than I can ever remember.  Don't know where that came from but made me smile.

I wish! ;D No seriously, I work in radiology. Lots of bones, guts and body fluids. And I get to see a very nice cross-section of the lower echelons of society. :-\ Halloween. Everyday. Good thing I'm not squeamish. ::)
