Even given the freak snow storm and power outage we went through over the weekend, Halloween could not be contained! Trick or treaters started at around sundown on Monday. We had gotten all our candy prepared and started passing out without any problems. I do believe that the cold weather (we still had snow on the grass, but our walkways were clear) might have kept some people inside it’s just as possible that people came to our condo complex because their towns were out of power. There’s something like 20 buildings each with 10-20 units, so it’s a great place to go if you want to maximize your candy collection.
Anyway, Lucy seemed to get into the spirit. We put her in her top secret Halloween party costume and took a few pictures, but her main suit of clothes for the evening was the above glow-in-the-dark skeleton onesie that was super cute if not very glow-y. My wife sat with her on the steps as I stood at the door and passed out candy. Since we’re on the second floor, it’s actually easier to just hang out on the landing instead of running up and down, though I could probably use the exercise.
She was a big hit with the parents and kids and I thinks he liked watching all the colorful costumes go by. The parade of kids stopped just before 8PM which was great because we wanted to see what the deal was with the Slutty Pumpkin on How I Met Your Mother. All in all, it was a great evening, Lucy seemed to have a good time and then conked out. How was your Halloween?
Lucy looks like she’s having a good time in that pic! Weather here in Toledo was really nice on Halloween so I sat outside & enjoyed a beer with my next door neighbor, Richard. We didn’t get a ton of kids – about 35 – but it was fun to see all the costumes.
