Alice in Wonderland
the Mad Hatter
Lots of Sugar
We started the night off by handing out candy. There are 11 neighbor kids counting my 2 that play together on a regular basis. So I had bought up some Root beer and made it into Spider Venom. It was a win and I got to be the cool mom. Oldest wanted to just be a coach or a trainer because like I've said before, i can't get him away from wearing sports clothes. I think he was starting to realize he didn't look any different and so he decided to be Tim Tebow at the last minute. I'm just glad he figured something out beings he won't have many more years to do this. Our neighborhood has a lot of homes and it is very kid friendly so people bus in to trick or treat. They hire police men and have certain streets shut off...it gets kinda crazy. Being our first year here we really didn't know what to expect but had been forewarned ahead of time that we would be slammed. I set a limit of spending $20 on candy and filled up a nice little caldron bucket knowing that when it was gone_ it would be gone_ and we would be done. We had set out a table_ chairs_ the candy_ our pumpkin all down at the foot of the driveway to meet each little character as they came by for some sweets. After participating in the giving it was finally time for my kiddos to go and get some treats so we left the bowl and pumpkin just sitting there for whomever to help themselves. When arriving back home we found that they had helped themselves...to our bucket and our cute little mustache man. I was like for reals?
Swiper no swiping...Someone had took the bucket and our pumpkin...and they were walking around holding that heavy thing.... all i can figure is, it must've been hubs awesome carving skillz that made it irresistible not to take. I took a few things too... a lot of photos of my 3 sweet's and a few
Almond Joys_ Snickers_ & Twix. :)
