This is Sweet Maya...she is a few weeks older than Avery and lives just down the street, if you couldn't tell, Zack is outnumbered, lots of girls in our 'hood.
This is how we trick or treat...wagon, large cup full of Rum & Diet Pepsi, and Nerds (that's what he is eating)...
If we could have found a Billy Goat costume for this one, we would have...
One last picture before we take it off and trade it in for a pair of cozy PJ's...night-night Lil Stinker.
So that was our night...oh wait, I should also mention that Riley LOATHES Halloween. He freaks out with every single ring of the door bell, every single knock on the door...he hates it. A few other things to note:
- Our neighborhood was depressing tonight, only 4-5 houses had their lights on when we went around at 6pm, is that because we were too early? Jeez, don't people know my kids go to bed at 7pm? So next year if we don't see a marked improvement I am going to send out a "Buck Up and Turns your Lights On" letter to the entire neighborhood, or better yet, I might just mention it at our Homeowners Association Meeting...shucks, that won't work either, I will be in Manila...I will have Brad deliver the message for me!
- You should NOT be talking on your cell phone while you are Trick or Treating...this girl rang our door bell, got our dog all riled up, and then continued to talk on her phone, giving Brad the "hold on" hand sign while she finished her conversation...are you kidding me? What is this world coming to?
- And seriously...if you don't have money for a costume, at least give it the ol' College Try. Put on all black, paint a nose and whiskers on your face and ta-da, a Black Cat, none of this "I don't have a costume, but I want your candy" crap, I have had it. I mean really?
- Props to the guy down the street who dressed up as a Dog Catcher for his daughter who was home sick with the flu, he didn't want her to miss out on the candy so he got all decked out, carried around this "bigger than a person" sized "Milkbone" made out of cardboard and went door to door with his son. Bless his heart, what a great Dad.
