Happy Halloween, Part 5

Trick-or-treat!  
Telling us about her candy...
Thor and Cap teamed up to save the neighborhood from too much sugar...
Corinne was beside herself by the time she made it to this house...

She was marching up to houses by herself at this point, grabbing multiple candy bars, and heading back into the night.  She ran into her cousin here and just told him, "Bye, Zachariah!" like she had business to take care of...


Zachariah preferred to sample his candy on the run...

Black Widow or a vampire?








We finally completed the circle and one of our last stops was the Chambley's big bucket of candy.  It looks like the girls are absolutely raiding their stash, but by this time they could really only squeeze one or two more pieces into their buckets...

Next door to the Chambley's a funny thing happened.  We ran into one of Pawpaw's friends from work who liked Pawpaw's costume so much that he took a selfie with him and emailed it out to colleagues.  Sorry, Pawpaw!


Caroline was Queen Daphne...
Three amigos...
This house is super scary.  They have a fog machine and sound effects and the dad and son dress up like zombies and hide in the decorations so they can scare the kids when they stop by...
Two beautiful ladies that we love...
Stella and Elizabeth took over candy distribution duties back at our house...

While Corinne dug into her stash...

Then we all went back for some hayride fun...



The haunted hayride was everyone's favorite...

If you look closely Watts is hiding behind his shield in these...


And here we see the dreaded Pot 'O Gold Phantom who appears on our street near this new construction once every year on Halloween night.  Strangely, he looks a lot like our neighbor Mr. Brian...


It was another wonderful Halloween.  We had a great time with friends and family, and our neighbors were so loving and generous to our children that it just warmed my heart.  Halloween is an experience that I largely missed out on as a child, but I am so glad that my children are using the holiday to build special memories with those they love.
