Happy Halloween!

After work today we got ready for the trick-or-treaters.

Some kids said, "your house smells like cinnamon buns!" Haha, the pumpkin candles are adding a nice glow to the house, and they'll have to do since we didn't bother carving pumpkins.

We snacked on cheese and crackers while waiting for the kids to arrive.

It's our tradition to order in on Halloween.  We usually order Pizza Hut, but we felt like Chinese food this evening.

There are a lot of leftovers, so we should have lunch for the next couple of days.  I think we order in Chinese food maybe once a year, so it's a nice treat when we do have it.

We didn't dress up this evening, but we got dressed up on the weekend, and went out with some friends to a Halloween event at The Artful Dodger.


My friend Jeff had the creepiest costume - eeeeeep!

Christopher's band was playing, along with three other bands, but unfortunately the event as a whole was terrible (poor organization, technical difficulties, disjointed) ...

His band played a great set, but since they were headlining at about 1:00 a.m., not many people were there to see them 😞

They had fun anyway!

Well, we've had 20 kids show up for treats so far tonight, but I'm thinking most are done for the evening.  It doesn't help that the city has had the street lights out on our block for weeks now; it's so dark!

Did you dress up at all today?  How many trick-or-treaters did you get?

That is a bummer that the event that Christopher's band played at was so disorganized/not well-run. :( Your friend's costume/face paint is super creepy!!

We did not dress up for Halloween but we did carve pumpkins. As usual, ours was cat-themed. We've hosted a pumpkin carving night 4 years in a row and every year we carve a cat! Phil handed out candy. It was around 0C so standing by a door with the cold air coming in was not appealing! So I stayed on the couch with a heated blanket on my lap. I think we got about 30 kids which is pretty average for us!

We only had 10 kids so we had a lottttt of leftover candy, which is both good and not good ha ha! I dressed up for work but didn't dress up to hand out candy, and Eric doesn't get home from work until 7:30pm so he didn't dress up OR hand out candy with me.
