Another fun year of trick-or-treating, chili-eating, and catching up with old friends. In attendance this year were the Meyers, the Quigleys, the Johnsons, Mom and Dad, and Leona. John did an outstanding job with capturing the kids in their costumes, but I'm a bit bummed I didn't request him taking some shots of us adults, as I think for many of us as "grown-ups", we equally look forward to this time to get together and see each other and chit chat amidst door-bell ringing and over-indulging in the food whose calories don't count because it's a holiday! (I'm beginning to re-think that theory though, as it's because of my stomach that I'm awake at this stupid hour....)
The girls were as beautiful as usual sporting cowgirl and angel looks....
Ummmm, I don't know what to say about this, folks. As I confessed on Facebook, he's a 7th grader, and some battles you just choose not to fight. No, he did not go to school dressed up like this - and no, I don't think he's in any hurry to wear mascara again.
Apparently, Andrew's nickname at school is "Pepsi" - way to go Amy in putting this together!
Adam, aka "The Comedian"
Okay, another confession - I went way to "Toddlers and Tiaras High Glitz" on Mikayla's make-up. She had no time to prepare as she'd just had to cut away from a birthday party early to get ready for our group. She was hurrying me and didn't want to wait for me to "soften it up". The effect you see here is proof why she won't be allowed to wear make-up until well after high school.....
Round Two of the Chili Feast Spread....look familiar? (Yes, it is a new batch of chili!)
And, off we go trick or treating...
This enchanting thing rose from the ground as we approached the door - really glad we were there before it got dark!
A final shot of Mom and Dad I asked John to take when I saw them standing there like that.
It was another great year of memories and fun - thanks to everyone who came who made it so special!
