Halloween 2012

Wow, well, after all that lead up to Halloween...what with the parties and the Giants winning the World Series and all...the main event was just another in a series of things going on. But I have to post pictures, right? Who doesn't post pictures of their kids in their costumes? I admit I'm having fun with their costumes these days..especially because Mam is so excited to have me put makeup on her.
This year, Mam chose to be a flamenco dancer. No, of course she doesn't know what a flamenco dancer is. But she saw the red, crushed velvet and black lace at TJ Maxx and was smitten. Sold.

Smunch was a medieval knight. Unfortunately, no one thought to have him try on his costume until Halloween rolled around. And it was significantly too small. Just getting him into it was a huge, painful struggle...both at school and at home. And that put him in a foul mood...just like last year.

It was a good-looking costume though. Of course, Smunch wasn't much for posing for pictures. Mam, was an entirely different story, hamming it up like I couldn't quite believe.
As always, there was a big candy haul and happy kids returned home from their evening of trick-or-treating.

Oh yeah, we had a lot of normal Halloween stuff regular ol' carved pumpkins and our own little front yard graveyard...all sort of hastily arranged, but festive nonetheless...

Can't believe Thanksgiving is less than a month away already. It'd be O.K. with me if life just slowed down a little about now. But I've got damsels to rescue, apparently...
