Of all the holidays, I LOVE Halloween the most [well, maybe with the exception of Fourth of July]. I enjoy all the traditions and just plain fun.
Grandson Knox dressed as Daniel Tiger
Grandson Elijah was dressed as a creepy ‘evil lord’
Elijah’s cousin Matthew’s costume was creepy, too, with glowing eyes
I bought a ton of candy earlier this week before tonight’s weather forecast took a rainy turn. I thought I’d end up with massive leftovers, but we had lots of trick or treaters in spite of the rain which fortunately didn’t last very long. We were very generous, giving it away in big handfuls ~ a very small amount left. Yay!
My sister Jane made these to-die-for pumpkin spice cupcakes. Thanks, Jane! This treat made my day.
Niece Julia and granddaughter Shelby putting finishing touches on their costumes
Shelby dressed up as Minnie Mouse …
… and so did her cousin Sarah ~ how’s that for a coincidence?
Julia was a ballerina ~ I always enjoy discovering the creative costumes my family comes up with every Halloween ~ [they never tell me what they’re going to be]
I made chili [a Halloween tradition since my girls were little trick or treaters] Around this table are Neil, Knox, Kelly, Julia, Holly, Elijah and Matthew
We had fourteen here tonight ~ around the dining room table Holly, Shelby, Jane, and Don ~ Jane and Don and I stayed at the house, handed out candy, and watched the Tennessee/Kentucky game [which UT won big time]
Jane also made these Nutter Butter ghosts dipped in white chocolate with milk chocolate eyes ~ very cute and totally yummy ~ in true ghostly style, these vanished before you could say Boo!
Son in law Jerry in his camo/wolfman costume ~ truly scary
Jane and her delicious cupcakes [Thanks again, Jane, for taking the time to make desserts! And thanks a million for washing dishes!! That was a huge help!!]
Trick or treaters braved the rain and went door to door, although Neil, Sarah, Katelyn, Julia, Shelby, and Jerry didn’t actually do any trick or treating
The Minnies Shelby and Sarah in a tug of war over Mickey ~ he never had it so good
Daniel Tiger Knox and his friend Batgirl Addelyn had a great time collecting candy
Halloween cousins ~ Elijah, Sarah, Julia, Shelby, and Knox
Halloween group shot ~ from top~ Sarah, Katelyn, Julia, Shelby, Matthew, Elijah, Knox, and Addelyn ~ I had the best time with all my Peeps tonight! Long live the Halloween tradition!
