Halloween 2013

The Little Terrorists are growing up and like other things, Halloween is taking on some new priorities.  In years past the parents would pick out costumes and the Little Terrorists would be tossed into them usually at the last minute and join in on the neighborhood festivities without a lot of hoopla about makeup or what they looked like as long as the outcome was lots of fun and of course candy.  This year plans and costumes were given a great deal of thought by the children....... and the adults.  Once they were in costume then there was the make-up that transformed them all into creatures of the night.

Case in point the fair Adrianne
prior to make-up....
...with the help of Auntie Jill transformed into the "Bride Corpse"

Taeya dolled up as a Blazer Cheerleader and Brooklyn told me he was a "scary clown." I told him he was just too cute to be scary.
Ok...scary clown transformation complete!
Crazy Cat Lady hissing at Uncle Nathan as he scares at least eight of her nine lives out of her.

Auntie Jackie transformed into Medusa

Then from out of the blue sky floated a sweet little blue butterfly with lopsided wings......

 Lloyd the wonder dog thought the little blue butterfly was the sweetest thing on two legs.... ....ahem wings.

The fifth annual 62nd Avenue Giant Pumpkin Parade went well, minus the pumpkin this year. We had a very good neighbor turn-out
Brooklyn and Bentley, our Miss Betty's little brother who lives next door with CCL

Then it was back home for the traditional meal of MeMa's clam chowder and homemade bread before turning the "Little Terrorists" loose on the neighborhood.

Little Lucy soon got the hang of the whole Trick-or-Treat scenario

And before long she was leaving everyone in  the dust including MeMa, as she raced from house to house.

But you know the best thing of all for us grandparents is after a night of sugar highs...... in the case of this little blue butterfly...... that they get to go home.

I hope everyone had as safe and fun filled Halloween night as the "Little Terrorists".  BOO!!!


  1. What a wonderful day. Great costumes for sure.

  2. I did notice some wonderful costumes here too this year.... nothing to do with Halloween, of course, but the local girlies just LOVE dressing up!

  3. I do enjoy all that thought and planning that the little folks put into the dash for the sugar crash. The neighborhood gathering is good. Our little town hosts a short party at the school after official trick or treat hours.

    1. Oh those sugar crashes, then they all come down with colds just in time for the season of soup.
