As I said earlier, I love Halloween! As usual, I dressed up the yard a bit tonight:

our front yard

Carved pumpkins (four words, people: battery operated pumpkin carver – this thing was awesome!):
Vulture pumpkin Pirate skull pumpkin

Jo and Felicia wanted a front row seat, so they camped out in the front window to watch trick-or-treaters:
waiting for trick-or-treaters

I dressed up as Violet Hunter again…this time without my Sherlock Holmes. Oh well.

We ended up with 63 trick-or-treaters. We gave out 29 books. The first trick-or-treater came at around 6:05 PM (for reference next year – every year I try to remember what time the first kids com around so I have the pumpkins out and my costume on in time). The last came at around 9:15PM (after we’d turned off the lights and doused the jack o’ lanterns…we didn’t open the door).

Now all that’s left is to clean up the yard. Sigh, and I’m off to Philly for the day tomorrow…hope it doesn’t rain until Friday at least.
