halloween 2008

Here's my little goblins & big monster all dressed up for trick or treating this year -

(in number order -
#1 dressed as Joey Jordison from Slipknot
#2 dressed as a gothic chic
#3 dressed as an alien clown from outer space
#4 dressed as a bride
Darkside dressed as his hero the Crypt Keeper.)






unfortunately this town we live in only has 1 night of trick or treating! and it was only from 5:30 - 7:30 !!! It wasn't even dusk till 6:30 here. In our home area in Illinois almost every town has 2 nights and it's from dusk till 8 or 9.

Plus they must not stick to any age limit here either. We seen more teenagers getting candy then any young kids. And no #1 (whose 15 now) didn't dress up to get candy. We dress up for the fun of it -- not the candy!

It was a rip-off for those who love the spirit of the holiday.

But I do have to say that the kids did get lots of candy for only 3 of them going out for about an hour.

Cause you know I wasn't done with everything for them to head right out at 5:30 =)

can't wait to move back home -- or at least closer to there!

We've got a countdown clock running on our desktop counting down to Feb. 1st because by then we will know where we're going. Hopefully we'll be packed and ready to go!

89 days to go!


ps - I think I just seen a bat out of the corner of my eye in the kitchen --- if so we'll be back home ALOT sooner!
