“Mom, how many days left until Halloween?”
I don’t know how many times I have answered that question over the past two weeks. My daughter Emma has been very excited about Halloween. The candy. Her vampire costume. Running around at night. Well, the countdown is over, along with Halloween. At least until next year!
Check out the photos of our night of trick or treating in Tierrasanta. We got together a gang of kids and went up and down and around our street. We stopped at the Haunted House that Doug puts up at the end of our street. We stared in amazement, as we do every year, at the Crazy House around the corner. The kids are old enough that the adults get to chat and catch up, while the kids collect their candy. They are even old enough now not to whine at how heavy their bags are! Ahh, these truly are the salad days. M+M and Laffy Taffy salad that is!

Kids with our neighbors
Annie and Zoraida dressed up as Tony and Rich. Complete with disguised cocktail. “What this? This is just a big, wholesome glass of pure water.”

Rat having dinner. Funny, Doug didn’t offer US dismembered limb. All we got was candy.
Annie tries to resuscitate the guy in the coffin. She said this ALWAYS works with Tony.
Kids inside the Haunted House. Dropping spiders, and shaking trees, and grabbing hands, OH MY!
Emma wrote this caption. “Here I am rising from my grave to get my revenge on those who are still living.”
Half of our gang departs, off to chocolatey-er pastures.
…while we head around the corner to the Crazy House. These people LOVE Halloween, and their decorations are beyond belief.
Before we head in Blake tries to kill J.D. All the decorations must be getting to him.
Bloody werewolf and hanging pirate ghost.
Werewolves and zombie babies.

Tired, thirsty, heavy bags of candy. Our work here is done…
