Well, that was fun.
I seriously cannot believe how fast this year is blowing by! It doesn't seem possible that it's already November. And yet it is.
Halloween was a howling good time. We stretched it out for as long as possible.
Spooking the house
First things first. The house has to be decorated.
This is might be my favorite part. It's like the house gets to wear a fun costume for a month! Actually, I began spooking ours when September appeared on the calendar.
Little things appeared first... like the pumpkins in front of the TV, the photographs on the walls were swapped out for Halloween-related ones, the kids' bathroom was transformed.
StuCrew Boo Bash 2017
Oh, the weather... the skies had been clear, the humidity minimal every day leading up to the party. Then the heavens opened. With a vengeance. It started pouring about an hour before guests arrived. And it didn't stop.
That didn't slow us down too much.
My biggest fail was the stunning LACK of photos from the party. I did not break the camera out at all. There are no pictures of the StuCrew in costume. *eye roll* Below are the only pics from the night:
The frame on the table says "One cupcake has been poisoned. Enjoy your night!" One of the kids came up to me at the party and whispered, "Which cupcake is the bad one? I don't want to eat that one."
Trick or Treat
By the time Tuesday rolled around, we had recovered from the Boo Bash.
It was time to TRICK OR TREAT! We weren't sure how our 'hood would be... it's still relatively new. Word on the street was a neighboring hood was the place to go. Word was right.
But first, we had an impromptu photoshoot while waiting for Daddy.
Trick or treating was fun... but the kids really wanted to go home and pass out candy. So we left after making it up and down one street.
Simply put: We had a GREAT Halloween! I can't wait for next year... although Stu, we need to step up our yard game.
There is little I like more than a holiday! Something about the energy of the day makes me giddy.
