Jack o' lanterns 'n all!.......though we didn't ever put them outside, because, without any trick or treaters to impress, what would have been the point?
And how cute are my tombstone cupcakes? Those are meant to be undead gummy zombies clawing their way out of their curséd graves. The kids were dead impressed, but wondered why none of them had legs...
There were 10 of them altogether. A manageable number. The older girls thought it was hysterical to run around screaming in terror at the top of their ever-loving, squealy-ass lungs. The boys were not even a little bit amused.
They did end up getting to do a bit of trick-or-treating. Earlier that afternoon, Mister went around to all of our nearest neighbors with a bag of candy, saying, "Look. In a couple of hours a bunch of becostumed kids are going to come knocking at your door. Just give them this, and they'll leave you alone." One lady--the older one in the blue house--was way into it. She ended up getting out candles, and was wearing a witch hat when she came to the door. She refused our candy saying she had plenty and wanted to put together her own goodies. She served it up to them out of a plastic cauldron. That's the spirit! I liked that lady immediately.
Mister needs to work on his costum a bit though:
