I have never been a fan of Halloween. I don't do costumes, I don't like candy corn, and I hate to be scared.
Although, I do like candy.
And pumpkins, for that matter.
But the kids, THE KIDS, they like the Halloween. So we buy costumes (well, I send RD out with them for that), we go to The Farm, we carve pumpkins, we decorate the house, we trick-or-treat, WE EAT CANDY.
Sis was a fairy princess (for, like, the 3rd year in a row.
(I promise there is a dress under that fleece.)
Bubba was a clone warrior or something from the Star Wars franchise.
(We've never really let him have toy guns before. He figured it out pretty quick.)
We got invited over to a friend of a friend's house for merriment and trick-or-treating around their neighborhood. Everyone was lovely AND they reminded us to bring our mugs in order to take along our favorite liquor and warm beverage of our choice as we tour the neighborhood.
These are my kind of people.
I'm already looking forward to next year.
Especially the candy.
