Halloween 2011!

Halloween is a time for great fun. A time to embrace our inner youth, and be creative. A time to let your imagination run wild! It's the one day of the year that is perfectly acceptable to be anything you want! So as usual, my husband and I dress up and we accompany our daughter out and about for trick or treating fun!

This year we invited our great friend, Mandy and her children to join us,
the more the merrier, or spookier in this case!!! Bwahahahaha!
She is a talented artist, and she so graciously helped to paint us up for our adventures into the darkness!
Myself as Dollface, Jacob as electrocuted guy, and Chrissie as a witch!
Every year our daughter, Chrissie, usually wants to be something pretty, preppy, or fabulous. It truly is just her style, it fits her personality. She is indeed a girly girl, which I love. So, I was quite surprised when she said she wanted to be a witch or vampire. She switched between these frequently, but then settled upon the decision that she wanted to be a scary witch. Oh what fun!
She looked fantastically frightening! What a wonderful witch!

Earlier that day I baked up some poison Halloween cake (green colored cake). Naomi, (Mandy's daughter) was enjoying a piece of poison cake when her younger brother, Lucas came into the dining area, Naomi then falls out onto the floor and pretends that the cake has sucked the life right out of her. This was very theatrical and too funny! Of course, this resulted in Lucas refusing to eat any cake. He looked at us as if we were all crazy for eating this green cake that is poison. It was quite amusing. The contradicting thing here is that green cake spooks him, but he would eat a bowl of chocolate icing in a heartbeat, while saying it is made of diarrhea, and that boogers are the secret ingredient. Silly boy!

So out and about we go all happy and eager to rack up on some candy! I remember when I was a kid, I could trick or treat all night, I didn't want to stop. Keep the candy coming, but not our kids, they go to a few streets, then they begin to get tired. Not sure what that is about... Guess it isn't that big of a deal to them, so they were ready to come back to the house. It worked out well, because it was quite chilly here, and it was a school night too. Besides, all that candy is unhealthy anyway!
The group!
We all had a lot of fun! Hope that your Halloween was awesome also!
