Halloween Pre-Gaming

Halloween is still two days away, but we're already well into the thick of our celebrations. Last Friday afternoon, we went to the business district trick-or-treating in our town square.

Maggie is a black cat (of course) and Kate is Merida from Brave. I think she looks pretty good with red hair!

They got a half ton of candy and balloons and pencils and spider rings and stickers. I know some people try to minimize the candypalooza sugar-gluttony of their kids' Halloween, but I find myself thinking, "Knock yourselves out, ladies. Load up on those mini Snickers while you still can!" I guess I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with Halloween candy myself, so I'd be a terrible hypocrite if I didn't let them indulge in a little festive candy hoarding. They're going to be vacuuming up holiday treats and birthday cakes from now until March anyway, so we might as well hunker down with a pumpkin bucket of Reese's cups and get this show on the road.

Not to worry though, it hasn't all been an insulin carnival. On Sunday, Mike carved their pumpkins for them. Kate's is the orange one with the scary face and Maggie's is the white one with the creepy smile.

We've decorated the house and put up lights on the porch. We watched Coraline on TV and then Kate slept with us because she had nightmares. Maggie painted this picture of pumpkins in art class, which I think is really quite good if I do say so myself.

It's been a scary good time already.

Kate's outfit might actually be scarier than the pumpkins.

We're still planning on hitting up the neighbors for MORE CANDY on Thursday night, so hopefully I'll have additional pictures this weekend.

May you all have an extremely dreadful Halloween!

  1. I can't get over how good that pumpkin picture is! Also, Mike is getting very good with the carving. Happy Halloween Fowlers!--Nana
