Hi Ya!

It was another fantastic Halloween in the cul de sac of kindness. Mr. Fu and I attempted “The Crane” and immediately fell over right after this shot was taken.

HALLOWEEN 042

The day started out in the school office. Sweet Boy and I like to make sure that the administrative ladies know we love them.

HALLOWEEN 001

The 4th graders were enjoying the Great Pumpkin Caper. Pumpkins were weighed and measured.

HALLOWEEN 005

Ridges on the pumpkin had to be counted.

HALLOWEEN 008

Then the pumpkin had to be scooped out and every single seed counted.

HALLOWEEN 010

The kids really enjoyed the slimy goodness.

HALLOWEEN 009

I then had lunch with Lady Gaga (aka The Fashionista).

HALLOWEEN 023

Of course every Ga Ga needs a Little Monster.

Later on Rudi took up his annual position as the candy distributor.

HALLOWEEN 039

Sweet Boy was Ash from Pokemon. I made the candy bag from felt using a dinner plate as a pattern. The hat was a nightmare to create. A shoo in for “Mother of the Year” I tell ya.

He was joined by the Grim Reaper.

HALLOWEEN 025

We ran out of candy. Twice. Luckily our great neighbors had bought tons.

Mr. Fu tried to provide a warning of what can happen when too much sugar is consumed. 

HALLOWEEN 034

Of course you might be hungry again an hour later.

HALLOWEEN 038

We had the good fortune to avoid any Kung Fu fighting. How was your holiday?

Looks like you had a great night. We hardly had any trick-or-treaters. In fact my daughter's neighbors were giving my granddaughter (who is only two) handfuls of candy just to get rid of it!

I miss the burbs on Halloween! Thanks for letting me 'attend' your celebration. Love Lady Gaga & Lil Monster! That makes you Paparazzi!

We are the crowd, we're c-comin' out
Got my flash on, it's true
Need that picture of you
It so magical, we'd be so fantastical

Your Friend,
Deborah

How FUN! I loveeeeeeeee the photos!!!! Lady Gaga and her Little Monster are AWESOME-ness! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Linda said...

I adore your family! So much fun :D

Our night was good. As I was telling your fabulous daughter on her blog, Sarah's photo of herself in her Bloody Nurse costume, is a bit too much for the blog, I think. It's gory, but she did an awesome job with her photography and editing. So creative.

Now we're into MY month. November. I love.

Hope you have a great remainder of the week.
Love, Linda

Boy, I'm jealous. You guys had so much fun. I worked in my booth and went home to fall asleep on the couch. We live up a really scary little dirt road, so we never get any trick or treaters. Bummer! In 10 years we've had 2, count 'em, two kids brave the path. At least it's quiet up here, in squirrel holler.

Great fun wasn't it? So happy for you...

Funny how you turn everything into an extended Thanksgiving. I explain - you could have the fun but one can see by your sharing (in this post and others) how you enjoy to involve others in what you're living. And next generation following suit? Warms my heart.

Glad you had, and provided others, a fun and sweeteness filled Holiday.
