Halloween went pretty well. Originally, Jamie was going to be the Incredible Hulk, but he had a last-minute change of heart, and decided to use his Harry Potter costume from last year. Oh well, it would have been hard to carry his candy bucket while wearing his Hulk Hands anyways. And besides, Mary had also decided to wear her Hermione costume again, so that made them a matched pair. At one point we saw some kids point at Mary and say, “Hey, look, there’s Hermione! She looks just like Hermione!” Mary was eating it up, and grinning from ear to ear.
Susan’s parents kept a tally, and said that a total of 57 Trick-or-Treaters came by the house this year (a new record), if you count those two kids that came back for seconds because they liked the cool rubber bats and spiders that we were giving out along with the candy 🙂
After ToT was over, we went over to John and Melissa’s house, ate some mummy dogs and other treats, and watched Creepshow, which is classic bad horror. If you’ve never seen it, Creepshow is actually 5 short stories, tied together by a meta-story. Really, the only one worth watching is “The Crate”. Though, “They Creep Up On You” is at least good for the gross-out factor from all the cockroaches.
