Halloween 2009

Someone PLEASE tell me what to do with the 3 ENORMOUS bags of Halloween candy still sitting in my pantry!

Last year, I didn’t have enough candy for all the trick-or-treaters.  So this year I stocked up.  Except… we didn’t get back to the house until 8:30pm.  And apparently all the trick-or-treaters in OUR neighborhood have returned home by 8:30.  When I was growing up, I seem to remember people coming to our house steadily until well after 10pm.  When did this change?

Anyway, Halloween was fun, and I DID in fact get Koren’s costume finished in time, with a few hours to spare. 

My mom had to do an emergency restoration on Kaelin’s costume, which she wore to a birthday party the night before, and which, contrary to what the tag says, WAS NOT MACHINE WASHABLE.  The stupid thing fell apart.  Obviously, we weren’t able to get the glitter back on, so you can see that it only extends 2/3 the length of the dress.  But thanks, Mom, for piecing the skirt back together!!!

    The advantage to being a teacher (and having a family of teachers) is that all leftover Halloween candy goes to school for bribes…er, rewards.  That said, I have a hard time keeping my paws off of the stuff beforehand so I gave up on candy and started passing out play-dough—which can be saved for future years.  Bonus!

    PS. Absolutely adorable costumes to go with the adorable kids!

    What a treat to see these precious pictures of my precious grandchildren! Wish we could have been with you to celebrate but this is a good substiture. Thanks for sharing.

    Love, Grandmommy
