Happy Halloween...Oh, wait...I missed that day!

Whoo Hooo! Two nights in a row posting. The Earth stops turning, the Mississippi runs backwards, there is a lunar eclipse, and comets streak through the night sky...

Okay, so maybe the Earth didn't stop, but you can't expect everything.

I am going to try and catch you up on some stuffage. Halloween was a blast for the girls this year. I worked very hard on their costumes. They were a mouse and a skunk. Kenzie also talked me into buying her a Buzz Lightyear costume, but I refused to let her trick-or-treat in it when I worked so hard on making her mouse costume. She didn't seem to mind once she saw the mose duds.

We went out on the Saturday before Halloween. This town does Halloween right. Everyone sits on their front porches and passes out candy to the kids. There are so many people out you can hardly get down the sidewalks sometimes. One person we talked to said they ususally get around 400 kids each year. Can you imagine buying that much candy to pass out. I love seeing all the kids in their costumes. Some of them are soooo cute and original.


Something I thought was interesting: Our town passed an ordinance that no one over the age of 12 could wear a mask that night. I never found out why.. maybe not to scare the little ones, maybe to keep the sex offenders away, maybe to keep people from robbing banks...who knows? If any of you do, fill me in.

The girls had a blast. They were definitely a hit with all the people and racked in the sweets! We had to go through all the candy on account of Lyanna's peanut and egg allergies. Halloween can be a little scary when you have a little one with a peanut allergy. I just made sure we had our epi pen and Benadryl with us.


Here are some pics so you can share the moment with us.

Aw, what great costumes on all of you! That's great that your Halloween is so festive. I think that we had a total of ten kids come around this year. Sigh. So much left over candy to eat.
