Halloween Revelry

We rushed home yesterday after work to catch the trick-or-treaters who come around our apartment from about 5 to 6:30.  Most of the kids who live in our apartments are either early elementary school or younger so they tend to come around early.  The prize for the best costume went to a tiny Princess Leia.

At that point, we put the candy out on the porch (Which wasn't all gone when we got back.  Very strange...), and headed out to a small soiree at our friends M and J's where the activity of the evening was playing the Michael Jackson dance game on the Wii.  I wasn't expecting much because if there's two things I'm terrible at it's video games and coordination, but actually it was a lot of fun.

Daniel and J tearing up Thriller:

So what were our costumes???

From right to left we have: a cowboy, Minnie Mouse, The Brawny Man, and a deviled egg.  K and I, also attending, declined to make fools of themselves by dressing up.  My costume is actually a pillowcase that I cut head and neck holes in.  The yolk is felt glued on, and the horns and trident are from Claire's, which came through for us for a second year in a row.

Also, Happy Birthday to Daniel's beard:

Do you get many trick-or-treaters where you live?  See any cute costumes?

  1. We had our jack-o-lantern on the porch and a bowl of candy ready... and we had ZERO trick-or-treaters! How disappointing.
