Finally came up with my Mob name while sitting here with a sugar headache editing our Halloween photos. "The Percolator" seems just right, doesn't it? Okay, it's not REALLY a mob, it's just another Facebook application....but it's kinda fun! If you're on Facebook and decide you'd like to join my mob, just let me know and I may send you an invite. After I clear it with the Godfather, of course. Thus far, I have mugged and burgled, knocked over a liquor store, and performed several car jackings. Fun! No rival mob wars yet......but soon.
Okay, enough about my mafia game.....did everyone have a safe and happy Halloween? What costumes did you wear/dress your kids and/or pets in? Rick had to work, so we decided Jacob would wear a costume and come trick-or-treating with the big kids, as opposed to being strapped into a stroller and tagging along with mommy like a wee baby. So he was Batman, Jack was a magician, Maggie was a Scary Godmother, and Alex was a creepy clown. We had a lot of fun putting their costumes together, and the big kids did a pretty good job of looking out for the little ones. What wonderful weather we had, too! Usually Halloween is cold, windy and rainy. EVERY year, I swear, the temperature could be 80 degrees the day before, then the next night the temps plummet into the 40 degree range. With rain, wind and occasionally.....hail. It's ridiculous and it happens EVERY year. EXCEPT this year! We could hardly believe it! Got some great pics, and the kids all had FULL buckets of candy to get sick on for the rest of the year! Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, right after Christmas and just before Easter. (Uh, not calendar-wise, but favorites-wise, lol!)
We went trick-or-treating in the neighborhood I grew up in....this is the house I lived in for most of my childhood! Looks a bit more beat-up than I remembered....and they took out the plum-colored tree that grew right outside my window, the jerks! *sigh*
In spite of how grouchy they all look in this picture, they really WERE having fun trick-or-treating, lol!
Hope your Halloween was happy!
Tomorrow I'll announce the winner of my Breast Cancer Awareness Month RAK!
